FAREWELL TO UCLA'S SONDRA HALE
By Cinnamon Stillwell

POLITICAL INDOCTRINATION, RATHER THAN TRUE EDUCATION & SCHOLARSHIP AT THE UNIVERSITY CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES:  RABIDLY ANTI-ISRAELI, PRO-ARAB, &, AT TIMES, ANTI-SEMITIC POLITICAL PROPAGANDA DISSEMINATED BY A UCLA FACULTY MEMBER -- PROFESSOR SONDRA HALE'S RECENT RETIREMENT PROVIDES UCLA WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE AMENDS FOR THE YEARS OF AGITPROP & POLITICAL PROSTITUTION, REPLACING HALE WITH SOMEONE WHO WILL PURSUE DISINTERESTED, RIGOROUS SCHOLARSHIP.
FULL STORY:   The rabidly anti-Israel University of California, Los Angeles, Anthropology and Women's Studies Professor Sondra Hale has retired. Her list of dubious achievements is long, and, over the years, Campus Watch has chronicled a good number:

Hale was one of the founding members of the organizing committee for the Campaign for the Cultural and Academic Boycott of Israel. At the time of its inception, she touted her prominent involvement, telling the Daily Bruin in February, 2009, that, were it to go into effect, "foreign exchange and cooperative programs with Israel would cease."

At an October, 2009, conference at the Center for Near Eastern Studies (CNES) -- for which she served as Chair of the Faculty Advisory Committee -- Hale equated the pro-Israel groups StandWithUs and the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) with "Nazis" and "McCarthyists."

In response to widespread criticism regarding the blatantly anti-Israel and, at times, anti-Semitic, nature of a January, 2009, "Human Rights and Gaza" CNES symposium, Hale penned an op-ed in the Daily Bruin, slamming UCLA student and member of Bruins for Israel, Ben Meiselman, for having the temerity to publish a piece criticizing the symposium.

Hale was one of the signatories to a ridiculously conspiratorial 2002 open letter warning that Israel would use the Iraq war to perpetrate "ethnic cleansing" against the Palestinians.

Shifting focus to her other specialty, Africa, Hale suggested in November, 2007, that Islamist-perpetrated genocide in Darfur could be prevented by sending in "mediation, negotiation, healing, and psychotherapy . . . professionals to work with people when tensions are building up."

UCLA now has an opportunity to make amends for Hale's years of agitprop and politicization of her discipline by filling her position with someone who will pursue disinterested, rigorous scholarship.
