reported Kahane-supporter NY State Assemblyman Dov Hikind’s successful
effort to get Brooklyn College to fire adjunct Middle East Studies professor
Kristofer Petersen-Overton because a student didn’t like the syllabus
for his course. Hikind also glanced at a sophisticated academic paper
on Palestinian identity and decided that Petersen-Overton was somehow
in favor of suicide bombers. This absurd charge was picked up by the
right-wing echo chamber. Astonishingly, Brooklyn College administrators
acquiesced and fired the young academic while clearly lying about it-
they said he lacked proper credentials.
