Pig kidneys, new and very cool (been using heart valves and corneas for yrs, also sheep and rat/mouse research) but Beagles are off limits?

This one’s interesting, to say the least. Seems a grad student teaching a course on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is intensely anti-Israel, and the college is facing pressure to cancel her course or replace her from outside sources. While I can’t be conclusive, having only glanced through some of her tweets on the topic, I provisionally consider her to be a serious bigot. Well, FIRE sent the college a message, telling them to refrain from doing so, to put it mildly. Do you think I agree with FIRE, or those advocating the termination of this bigot’s class?

Be honest.
I may hate her rhetoric, and consider Washington & Lee’s wisdom in approving the course, but FIRE is right on this. Besides, if her rhetoric is what I expect it to be, she’ll turn more against her cause than converts she gains, even with the initial filtering of her bias WRT enrollment. What have you been doing with your spare time today?

An issue 1000s of years old, which I do not expect to be equitably resolved in my lifetime.
Lands lost/gained/regained by conquest/genocide.
That said, Israel was grated a place with no recognized/organized govt by most of the world, and defended it.
The Palestinians have been treated badly by Israel, and used as pawns by other Arab nations (most of which refused to take them in).
The situation was set up for eventual failure.

While Jerusalem seems to be the focal point of the entire conflict, I maintain that it’s merely been shifted there from the Jezreel Valley, which was the initial cause for fighting in that region, and continued to be for thousands of years.

I feel for ordinary Palestinians, but they’re governed by Hamas, which is controlled by Iran. The innocent victims of violence among the regular folks makes for great press propaganda, which is why Hamas deliberately stages their attacks on innocent Israelis from locations populated with plenty of civilians there. The IDF does what it can to be surgical, but they have the right to use military force to put an end to each of the almost-incessant non-military attacks by Hamas.

Plotting the complete destruction of Israel is a long tradition among many Levantine Muslims, not to mention others elsewhere. Genocide is a real possibility, if that happened. But here’s the thing, Muslims who are Israelis have equal rights, while those living in Muslim states often do not. Of course, China also practices persecution, and looks to be set on making an entire cultural group vanish quietly.

The term “colitas” in the first stanza (“warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air”) has been interpreted as a sexual slang or a reference to marijuana. “Colitas” means “little tails” in Spanish; in Mexican slang it refers to buds of the cannabis (marijuana) plant.

For those who still take the time to read, I highly recommend Julius Marx’ autobiography, Grouch and Me. It’s one of the few bios I’ve come across actually written by the person, without any ghostwriter, and the text demonstrates that.
