Vice Chancellor of Curtin University Harlene Hayne’s “F-ck You” To Jewish Students
The reactions to the Hamas massacre we have seen from many in the academic community are sickening to say the least, and I am not just speaking about US colleges.
The following email was sent by Harlene Hayne, the Vice Chancellor of Curtin University from my birthplace Western Australia:
Terrorists have slaughtered Israeli and foreign national men, women and children, raped women, beheaded and burnt babies, abducted entire families, and committed some of the most heinous atrocities we have seen in recent times, if not ever. And Harlene Hayne sees Israel’s response in Gaza as being the only tragedy here.
Jewish students have already felt increasingly isolated and in fear from the hateful rhetoric they have witnessed from many of their fellow students, including those they may have felt stood for human rights for all. Having their Vice Chancellor deliver this F you will only add to their extreme distress – especially on this day designated as a worldwide day of rage by Hamas.
