The institution is a Marxist cesspool of radical fanaticism, but making matters worse is that the faculty is one of the primary guiding forces in shaping the public school curriculum in Ontario. Ben Levin, the former Ontario Deputy Education Minister who attempted to introduce curriculum changes that were criticized for its over-sexualization of young children, was on staff at OISE when he was arrested on charges of producing child pornography.
Aside from sympathy for the ideas that produce pedophiles manifested at a recent OISE conference, sympathy for terrorism, particularly when it is directed against Jews, is something else the faculty promotes.
This Friday evening, OISE's Leadership, Higher and Adult Education department is presenting a talk by Birzeit University Academic Linda Tabar about her paper, "Palestine and “The Internationals”: Tracing the Domestication of Solidarity Post-Oslo."
Note the concept of the "pacification" of the "Palestinian liberation movement." Later in the facile, buzz-word filled description of her presentation, she elucidates that such pacification "is producing problematic recolonising relationships, where what happens in the name of solidarity not only reenacts white privilege, but reproduces Zionist settler colonial hierarchies and its racialised colonial order. The paper contrasts this with the militant tradition of solidarity that was created by the third world liberation movements in the 1970s."
If you think that sounds like thinly-veiled nostalgia for the good old days of Palestinian terrorist campaigns of suicide bombings and child murders against Israelis, there's good reason. In the description of a talk Ms Tabar gave on the same paper in Austria, where there is little compunction about public sympathy for Palestinian terrorism, she was more explicit about her sympathy for violent ideologies and wrote:
"I will aim to shed light on the new hegemonies that are competing to fill the political space once fully occupied by the Palestinian national liberation movement and its radical liberatory consciousness. In a period of global neoliberal capitalism, when an assemblage of NGO aid workers, human rights regime, political tourism and liberal cosmopolitanism mediate local-global encounters, I argue that liberal imperial hegemonies have redefined international solidarity in a way that conceals global structures of dominance, and threatens to replace a tradition of radical political solidarity with the Palestinian struggle that is based a shared anti-colonial, anti- racist, and anti-imperialist politics."Ms Tabar's pro-terror talk is being presented at OISE by its Professor Sharzad Mojab, who previously has produced what could well be the most idiotic paper in the history of Canadian academia. In it, she attributed the erosion of women's rights in Muslim countries, not to the rise of Islamism and its repressive misogyny, but to western governments, which she alleges are "in concert with large charitable foundations and corporations to actively suppress and dismantle social movements, including the women’s movement."
This sort of detestable nonsense with which OISE indoctrinates its students, who then go on to spread that poison throughout other education faculties in Canada, invites a pressing question.
Why does the leadership of the University of Toronto continue to acquiesce to what goes on at that vile institution?
