Fieldston School Cancels Palestinian Propaganda Assembly
Earlier this week, The Zionist Conspiracy broke the story of the Fieldston School's scheduling of an "assembly" at which two pro-Palestinian professors would speak next Thursday.
After finishing a column about the subject, this morning I read the long article in today's New York Times reporting that after much protest from parents and others, the assembly had been canceled.
The assembly was such a terrible idea in the first place that Fieldston's corrective step does not fully vindicate the school.
In a way, more important than Fieldston's cancellation is the fact that many students and parents of students at Fieldston were outraged at the inclusion of Mazin Qumsiyeh, a hateful fanatic who advocates the destruction of Israel and compares Zionism to Nazism.
