During Israel Apartheid Week, which took place on the University of Toronto campus in February, the student body was presented with a flurry of information by anti-Israel activists, linking Israel's policies toward Palestinians with South Africa's former policy of segregation. Now, a group professors at the university wants to make sure it doesn't happen again.Israeli Apartheid Week speaker Ward Churchill is mentioned.
The 125 faculty members signed a full-page ad that ran in Canada's National Post last week, calling on the university to "oppose the hosting of Israel Apartheid Week" and "stop this hateful and divisive event from returning to our university in future years."
Update: Divisive. I hate that word.
