Letter to the editor: Existence of Arab Culture Club comes as a surprise

Published: April 13, 2007
Section: Opinions


To the editor,

I was surprised to find out that Brandeis has an Arab student club on campus. How do Muslim students tolerate such extremely offensive racist and anti-Muslim attitudes at Brandeis? I never read or hear anything from Muslim students on campus. Maybe it's not safe for Muslims to speak out at Brandeis. After what happened to Jimmy Carter and Norman Finkelstein it's understandable. Has Brandeis ever allowed a Muslim speaker who was critical of Israel on campus?
