After a visiting scholar who survived the Holocaust refused to condemn the establishment of Israel, the college student who made the demand walked out of his speech.
When visiting scholar Harold Kasimow, who survived the Holocaust as a young boy, addressed a gathering at Chicago-area Benedictine University last week, he probably never expected that a student would request him to condemn the existence of the Jewish state.
He also probably never expected a student to compare the brutal murder of 6 million Jews during the Nazis’ genocidal rule to the Palestinians’ self-inflicted problems, which are largely the product of 70 years of refusing to make peace with their Israeli neighbors.
Well, that’s exactly what happened to Professor Kasimow in this shocking display of disrespect and ignorance of the facts. After the clip ended, the student walked out of the talk.
