Columbia Report

April 1, 2005

The FIRE’s Torch has an analysis of the report  from Columbia University’s Ad Hoc Grievance Committee dealing with allegations against the school’s Middle East and Asian Languages and Cultures (MEALAC) Department. The FIRE does not seem pleased (wow, that’s kind of a surreal sentence to write). The impetus for the committee was Columbia Unbecoming, a documentary that purports to "document bias and intimidation directed at Israel and its supporters on campus." I haven’t watched the video and only have a basic knowledge of the controversy, so I’ll leave it to the reader to interpret the information.
