Shame on the Excalibur.....

The student newspaper at York University in Toronto prints an opinion piece praising the suicide attack on the Yeeshiva in Jerusalem.
It’s no wonder why Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav Kook School was attacked.

I’m not surprised that Ala’a Hisham Abu Dhaim targeted Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav Kook School in Jerusalem.

Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav Kook School is described as a religious camp that links Judaism with Zionism. This makes it very different from any other anti-Zionist Orthodox school in Israel.

This institution established a program known as the “yeshivat hesder”. The word “hesder” means the settlement of a curriculum that combines Talmudic studies with military service.

In other words, this school has direct connections with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), and its graduating students are those whom are committing a holocaust in Gaza in the Palestinians eyes.

This school strengthens the idea on its students and graduates of the land of Israel from the Euphrates to the Nile, as well as the need to make this land a “religious land,” which means there should not be any right to return for the Palestinians that were expelled from their land.

The school has around 500 students aged 18 to 30. Many of its past graduates went on to found other similar religious schools in the West Bank settlements which are described as racist among the Orthodox Jews.

In the eyes of the Palestinians, it was the IDF who started the holocaust in Gaza, and the Palestinians are simply targeting the source of that attack.
Of course, they are free to publish whatever they want. But, what does it say about their judgement by printing such an article? I am sure that Osama Bin Laden and anybody from Al-Qaeda would love a forum in the Excalibur....but that doesn't mean they should print it.

Brought to you by the same students who denied a pro-life debate:

Student Centre vice-chair Kelly Holloway said the debate was cancelled because it was an equal rights issue. “The reason is that it’s an equity concern for the Student Centre. Having a debate over whether or not women should be able to choose what to do with their own bodies is tantamount to having a debate about whether or not a man should be able to beat his wife,”

Holloway said.
“The issue is violence against women, and women in this country have a right to choose what they do with their bodies. They have a right to have an abortion, and we don’t want to validate a debate that wants to threaten that right.”

Tolerance is a one way street at York. Message to Canadians: Tolerate our narrow insular student views or shut up!

Thank God (is that politically incorrect?) that student newspapers are only read by a few students. Most are too busy working on their grades.
Unfortunately for some it is their only chance to spread their hateful messages.
