|IAM Friday Special: Letter to the TAU Dean of Humanities regarding TAU Prof. Moshe Zuckermann / Codes of Incitement|
To the Dean of Humanities, Tel Aviv University
Dear Dr. Zisser,
Congratulation to your new job at TAU! I know the Stephen Roth
I am a researcher on anti-Semitism, the Holocaust, and anti-Zionism
I was a Post-Doc at Yale University until 2009 (YIISA), holding a
PhD in political science from Innsbruck, Austria, from 2006.
I am an expert on German anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, including
the work of Prof. Moshe Zuckermann.
I published two books on German anti-Semitism so far, this year I
will publish my third book on that topic.
Many journals around the world, including the Middle East Quarterly,
Jerusalem Post, Jewish Political Studiew Review,
Die Welt, achgut, Tribuene, New Jersey Jewish News, Mentalities
among others have published my articles or reviews on anti-Semitism.
I have seen your winter 2010/11 programme, including a lecture on
December 30, 2010, by Moshe Zuckermann.
I am curious how this could happen. Zuckermann is a leading
anti-Israeli voice in Germany.
Hardcore anti-Semites like the daily junge Welt or the Iranian news
quote Zuckermann regularly.
Why did the Stephen Roth Center include such a person like
Zuckermann in its programme?
What was the role of the two German foundations hereby?
Zuckermann did very much support German style anti-Semitism by
writing for the daily junge Welt,
formerly a daily of the GDR. They are known as enemies of the Jewish
state of Israel and friends
of Jihad and any kind of anti-Western, anti-American ideology.
Thank you very much for your response,
Dr. Clemens Heni
Research Fellow, Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of
Hebrew University, Jerusalem

Israel Apartheid Week (IAW) is an annual event. Its purpose is to
delegitimizationof the Jewish State. This year 40 festivals of hate will be celebrated simultaneously. It'll be in March, and they're already hard at work on preparations.
Last month the Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid (CAIA) announced the plan:
"This year, Apartheid Week will take place concurrently in over 40 cities worldwide, including Toronto, Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, Bay Area, Chicago, Washington, London, Oxford, and cities in South Africa. Complete with lectures, multimedia presentations, cultural performances, art showings film screenings and demonstrations, our understanding of apartheid Israel is developed throughout the Week, with every event and speaker adding insight into our analysis." more

I started Dry Bones in Jan 1973. Since then I've been known as "Bones" to friends and colleagues. This is the first time I've ever shared the "stories behind the cartoons." Enjoy.
