Thank you for taking a stand (english)

It is so important that you are taking a stand against all this madness at our universities. It is insane that you are considered a threat and get disinvited from lectures, while Islamists and other violent, terror-supporting extremists are given free rein to rant against Israel and America all the time without ever worrying about suffering any consequences.
Obviously, you do not advocate "genocide" or any other such ridiculous policy, yet you are treated like the worst pariah, which shows the extent of the extremism regarding the Middle East on our campuses.

I'm a teacher at Queens College, and I heard your excellent lecture there back in May. Fortunately, Queens College is not a radical hotbed of anti-Israel activism thanks to the demographics (many Jewish students and even many Orthodox ones, in an Orthodox area), so there were no problems there. Unfortunately, this is not the case at many colleges. I thank you for speaking out against this sickening phenomenon on our campuses today and for continuing to take the necessary steps. We must fight against these uncompromising forces that won't allow any dissenting voices to be heard.

"It is insane that you are considered a threat and get disinvited from lectures, while Islamists and other violent, terror-supporting extremists....."

Say no more Sarah,
you have shown your true colors.

Really, just replace "Islamist" with "Jewish" and it would be straight out of Nazi Germany. What's the difference? (except the targeted religion).

The Nazi philosophy of religious hatred is exactly the same.
