Among the approximately 800 signatories are 14 Columbia faculty members, including:

    @f1rst!! and not racist

  • random says:

    @random bombs away!

  • green says:

    @green I can see some people are just hungry for controversy.

    1. alum says:

      @alum It does seem like Bwog is trying to stir controversy where it does not exist. The new regime of the College Republicans probably don’t even know how Horowitz is and would not stir controversy by bringing him back to campus.

  • umm... says:

    @umm... Bwog, can we have more news on the actual letter than that it contains “stuff about gaza” voicing “opposition to Israel’s actions”?

  • wow says:

    @wow seriously not a SINGLE professor in favor of Israel? I agree that Israel is doing a lot of fucked up things, but I can not believe that a single professor has not spoken out in support of Israel. Has Bwog just not covered it (I’m not trying to stir up controversy, I swear!)

    1. Yinon Cohen says:

      @Yinon Cohen could count. See the last Bwog post on this topic.

    2. wow says:

      @wow I’m sure there are at least some professors who also realize the “fucked up” things the other side has been doing for years…

      1. wait... says:

        @wait... you mean firing rockets with the intent of killing civilians while hiding in school and hospitals is “fucked up”? who knew

    3. Alum says:

      @Alum Maybe there is a reason to that.

  • hadley says:

    @hadley Does anybody really care what these professors think? Is anyone surprised by their position?

  • hmm says:

    @hmm i don’t think playing a dick measuring contest of whose actions are more “fucked up” justify the ridiculous “fucked up-edness” of what is going on right now.

    there ARE conscientious Israeli objectors. You aren’t necessarily FOR another side’s “fucked up-ity” if you protest against the current huuuuuge “fucked up-itude”.

    you, fuck-ups.

    What should Bwog's new tagline be?
