The New York Times has recently suggested that the powers that be at Harvard refused to give Cornel West a tenure track because he has argued for the plight of the Palestinians. The concern was that “his support for the Palestinian cause might offend the prevailing orthodoxy and donors.”[1]

The New York Times did not even dare to tell us what the “prevailing orthodoxy” is and who the “donors” were because that would almost certainly weaken the Zionist narrative. This incident also reveals that the Black/Jewish alliance was a smokescreen and was hatched out of ideological need to attack the social structure in America. Zionist donors don’t really care about “blacks” or “whites” or anyone who will challenge them. As one black scholar puts it, these people want to fight so-called anti-Semitism “by remote control.”[2]

When Harvard Jewish president Larry Summers was complaining about West’s lack of academic work back in 2001, academic fraudster Alan Dershowitz—“America’s most public Jewish defender”[3]—was at Harvard writing fraudulent books like The Case for Israel, which Jewish scholar Norman Finkelstein has meticulously shown to be a work of plagiarism.[4] Did Summers ever take Dershowitz to his office and rebuke him from making Harvard look bad by using a high school syllabus as a “scholarly” source? Of course not. Both Dershowitz and Summers were obviously on the same team.

West is obviously not on the Zionist team because he has radically diverged from the Israel/Palestine issue. West is known for saying things like Summers is “the Ariel Sharon of American higher education.”[5] Well, who is Arial Sharon? He was an Israeli general and politician who served as the 11th Prime Minister of Israel. As the articulate journalists Jeffrey St. Clair and Alexander Cockburn put it, Sharon was a terrorist:

“His crucial role in provoking Palestinian uprisings by his excursions 
under heavy military protection to holy sites in Jerusalem is well known… A 
little more faintly perhaps people recall the verdict of an Israeli commission
of inquiry finding that Sharon bore some responsibility for the dreadful Phalangist 
massacres in Palestinian refugee camps outside Beirut. But in fact 
Sharon’s history as a terrorist, with documented participation in what 
can be fairly stigmatized as war crimes, goes back to the early 1950s…

 first documented sortie as a terrorist was in August of 1953 on the refugee
 camp of El-Bureig, south of Gaza. An Israeli history of the unit records 50 
refugees as having been killed; other sources allege 15 or 20. Major-General
 Vagn Bennike, the UN commander, reported that ‘bombs were thrown’
 by Sharon’s men ‘through the windows of huts in which the refugees were sleeping and, as they fled, they were attacked by small arms and automatic 
weapons.’ In October
 of 1953 came the attack by Sharon’s Unit 101 on the Jordanian village of
 Qibya, whose ‘stain’ Israel’s foreign minister at the time, Moshe
 Sharett, confided to his diary, ‘would stick to us and not be washed away 
for many years.’”[6]

Gilad Sharon, son of Ariel Sharon, picked up his father’s terrorist mantle by 2012 and declared:

“We need to flatten entire neighborhoods in Gaza. Flatten all of Gaza…There should be no electricity in Gaza, no gasoline or moving vehicles, nothing.”[7]

So, the powers that be would certainly have second thought about giving West a platform at Harvard because West doesn’t shy away from criticizing the entire Zionist superstructure. Haaretz has already declared that “Cornel West has a Jewish problem.” Summers rebuked West for recording a rap song and “for writing books more likely to be reviewed in The New York Times than in academic journals.”[8]

Yet Summers once again never chastised Dershowitz for writing letters to university presidents and even to then California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger for attempting to stop the publication of an academic and scholarly book by Norman Finkelstein. You can read the entire story in Finkelstein’s Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of History.

  1. The “Land of the Free” has morphed into the PLANTATION of the Zio-Rothschild erected Zionist Apartheid Terror state of Israel, whose agents like AIPAC-ADL and dozens of other Zio-Jewish entities within the US, the enemies within, are in complete control of our Three Branches of Government, of our Foreign and Domestic policy Decisions! Like the late Congressman from Ohio, Jim Traficant stated many times, “The US Congress is a BROTHEL! They are serving the interests of the Zionist Terror State!” He was right on the MONEY! Money Talks! Money makes the World Go Around! The sinister demonic Forces within our Government have FRAMED, JAILED and eventually Murdered Jim Traficant! Why the surprise? What the Demonic Zionists do to a friend? http://www.holocaustonthehighseas.com Who placed Controlled Demolition Explosives/Gear into the WTC. Towers 31,#2,#7 to Pull them Down and murdered, 2977 innocent Collateral Victims, ‘Sacrificial Lambs’ in order to drag the US at the unending Wars of the Middle East? Pray for America! GOD Save America??

    • All it would take is an AMERICAN President, going on live television, and spilling the beans on the Criminal Cabal running this country, and then ordering the arrest of ALL of THEM.
      Then we could let Freedom ring.

  2. In my opinion, Jonas Alexis is one of VT’s best researchers and authors. I cannot remember reading any of his posted articles in which I had any disagreement or remaining questions. He’s a keeper.

    As an aside, I gave up on thinking of Harvard as a great academic institution decades ago. In fact, and in spite of its relevance in the legal world, Harvard Law School has lost much of its real significance to me because of people like Alan Dershowitz. Yes, I’m a constitutionalist and originalist when it comes to constitutional law. Cornel West is one of the good guys and should be left alone by the tribe. IMO.
