1 State Conference: Jewish People Don't Exist

I'm sure we all remember when Newt Gingrich declared that Palestinians are an invented people and all the bashing he got from the usual suspects. So far, no such outrage over this BU professor declaring at the One State Conference that the Jewish people don't exist:
Anti-Israel activists who have gathered this weekend at Harvard University's "One State Conference" were told yesterday that the Jewish people do not exist.

Prof. Susan M. Akram of Boston University's School of Law told the gathering that there is no legal basis for Jewish self-determination--at all:
"Israel’s claim of a state, on the basis of exclusive and discriminatory rights to Jews [sic], has never been juridically recognized. In other words, the concept of the Jewish people as a national entity with extraterritorial claims has never been recognized under international law."



But remember, it's just criticism of Israel's policies. Nothing anti-Semitic about trying to take away the rights of Jews.

  2. I’m happy to see you picked this up. A lot of pro-Israel sites appear to have missed it, despite all the controversy surrounding the One State Conference.
    Hopefully the Breitbart sites will continue to be passionate supporters of Israel.
