And I Thought Canadian University Bias Was Bad...

Oh. My.

This has to be one of the most disturbing things I've seen in quite some time. From the campaign for the Student Government Council at Bir Zeit University near Ramallah, in the West Bank:

"At a debate, the Hamas candidate asked the Fatah candidate: 'Hamas activists in this university killed 135 Zionists. How many did Fatah activists from Bir Zeit kill?'

The Fatah candidate refused to answer, suggesting his rival 'look at the paper, go to the archives and see for yourself. Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades have not stopped fighting the occupation.'

Fatah set up models of Jewish settlements and then blew them up with fireworks."
Read the whole thing, but note - it is not for the faint of heart. (HatTip to Best Of The Web Today, and James Taranto, who asked: "...remind us again why these people ought to have their own state?").

A webjournal of ideas, comments, and various other miscellany from a Texan university student (with occasional input from his family) living in Toronto, Ontario. Can you say "culture shock?"
