OH SUZANNA RUTLAND - DON'T CRY FOR ISRAEL!!
Belatedly the government has offered an unequivocal rebuff’’ to the anti – Israel boycott. The Australian 13/12 ALP hits out at Israel boycott.
They should ask the ‘Peace - Studies Centre’ what they did with the $500,000 Cut and Paste The Australian 12/12 given to them by the government and assure us that they will recover funds and not further support the tomato – red faction of politics and academe.
This may resolve some conflicts embedded in the minds of Professor Suzanna Rutland and all others who have finally discovered the courage to vitiate the actions of Lynch.
But look at Rutland’s words:
‘’Professor Rutland, a member of the university's Department of Hebrew, Biblical and Jewish Studies, warned of the impact of religious fundamentalism and extremism on both sides of the conflict in the Middle East.
"Since BDS only targets Israeli universities and other products, I believe this creates an asymmetric view of the conflict," she said.
Professor Rutland said she had been concerned by the centre's position on BDS for a number of years, while supporting the centre's other work.’’
What other work, Professor?
Inviting avowed enemies of Israel to bash Israel? [ See great other letters The Australian 13/12] Please spell it out – for the sake of your students!
This Professor Rutland, a member of the university's Department of Hebrew, Biblical and Jewish Studies, should be ashamed of herself in making such a mealy – mouthed highly qualified comments.
I verily ask- where was she during these years?
What was she teaching her students?
Peace studies is a throw – back to days when watermelons had not been invented and Baghdad Bill Hartley demonised Jews. Joan Coxedge is still into bashing Israel with anti – nuclear thrown to her repertoire of prolix thinking.
Furthermore, nothing changes with the left: Professor Duncan Ivison Letters 13/12 now ostensively supports Jake Lynch rights:
‘’I defend Lynch’s right to do so’’ then effectively contradicts himself in same letter to editor in denying Sydney University support for the BDS against Israel.
Alas it gets worse for Ivison. He plainly contradicted his current contradiction AKA freedom of speech ethic! In The Australian 8/12 I quote him as follows":
‘’The dean of the university's arts and social science faculty, Duncan Ivison, yesterday wrote to Jake Lynch spelling out that "he does not speak for the faculty on visiting scholars and cannot make decisions about who comes here".: Centre chief Jake Lynch rebuked over Israeli snub 8/12:
‘’The dean of the university's arts and social science faculty, Duncan Ivison, yesterday wrote to Jake Lynch spelling out that "he does not speak for the faculty on visiting scholars and cannot make decisions about who comes here".

That's the Australian government that allocated $500,000 to fund Lynch's discipline, peace studies journalism; University of Sydney website, September 12:
(TO) carry out research over three years to establish criteria based on peace journalism for a global standard in news reporting about conflict. The project is intended to strengthen the credentials of peace journalism both as a research agenda and an instrument for media reform advocacy. It will seek to elaborate and define standards of fairness and accuracy of representation, and examine what kinds of news are psychologically harmful and beneficial to readers and audiences.
