Bibliography of SFSU Controversies

Michael Lumish

sfsuI am in the process of compiling a more-or-less comprehensive, politically non-biased, on-line bibliography of newspaper articles, blog pieces, television reports, and so forth, concerning the various recent controversies at San Francisco State University (SFSU) around questions of anti-Semitism, primarily from about 2006 until the present.

This material can be easily accessed from the front page of Israel Thrives under the tab reading, Bibliography of SFSU Controversies.

These controversies include, in reverse order:

1) The David Horowitz Poster Campaign

2) The Disruption of Jerusalem Mayor, Nir Barkat

3) The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between SFSU and An-Najah University

4) Professor Abdulhadi's visit with terrorist Leila Khaled

5) Former GUPS President Muhammad H. Hammad and his trusty blade.

6) The Edward Said mural controversy

My hope is that this series of links may prove useful to those looking for easy access to what has been written publically on these matters.

This material should be helpful to researches, writers, and political advocates concerned with contemporary western academic relations with both Israel and the Jewish people.

San Francisco State University, of course, merely represents one prominent example of larger campus trends in the United States and the West, more generally. It is not necessarily typical of American universities, but if European campuses are any indication, it is ahead of the curve.

In any case, expect additional material and format changes going forward.

This is very much a work in progress.
