Amending for Kramer scandal, Harvard’s Weatherhead Center now invites–

Tomorrow evening Norman Finkelstein speaks on the Goldstone report at Harvard Law. Notice that NO Harvard human rights group has co-sponsored the event. Remember that Judge Richard Goldstone was a fixture on the Harvard Law School and Harvard human rights landscape. I’m not sure if everyone is now afraid to touch him.

    As some will know, Duncan Kennedy is one of a very few progressives remaining anywhere at Harvard. The Alan Dershowitz School of Character Assassination and Justification for Israeli War Crimes now dominates, especially at the Law School, the Business School and, above all, the Kennedy School (aptly named for one of the least-noted war criminals in the pantheon of war criminal presidents).

    Well of course they cannot stand still when justice and truth come marching along – this is how serious it really is at this point. The entire academic community needs to reprobate this process immediately, we do not need to hear any sputtering response – “well, how come you do not do this to others?” That is because it has and is being done all the time, and now it is your turn – there are no exceptions.
