Civil Rights Violations, Lies & Audiotape: Bíklyn College Still in Spotlight
The BDS event at Brooklyn College took place last week, but the fallout continues and what is coming may be far uglier than even the dueling charges of anti-Semitism and Zionist censorship that preceded the event.
As has been widely reported, an effort was made to bar four Jewish pro-Israel students who had pre-registered and received written confirmation of admission for getting into the building, and then again in the building, for getting into the room where the event took place.
Then, once those four were finally in the event room, they were forcibly ejected within 15 minutes of their arrival at the behest of Students for Justice for Palestine leadership, by Brooklyn College security, and with the tacit approval of at least one Brooklyn College administrator, Milga Morales, the Vice President for Student Affairs.
We are now in a situation where there seems to be no two ways about it Ė someone is lying, maybe several people. And school officials, both administration representatives as well as faculty members were on the scene Ė so if the students were unfairly ejected, an apology will hardly suffice.
