    An old mosque that had been a church before that, and was originally a synagogue. A multi-layered history and an "iconic landmark.." But ultimately, just a building which can be rebuilt. Unlike the residents, whose scars are unlikely ever to heal.

    just a building, perhaps (although I'm sure it means more than that to those who worship there), but why risk further inflaming tensions in the region by destroying it? we've seen the outrage a cartoon can generate in the Muslim world.

    Considering the insane stuff that same account has been posting, I am very skeptical about the source to say the least.

    So Musk is replatforming Alex Jones one of the worst purveyors of antisemitism in America. Millions of citizens will now be exposed to his white genocide tropes.

    I am sure the same people will have nothing to say about this.

    Honestly the only surprising thing about this is that it took this long.

    I'm from West-Flanders, where countless buildings that were hundreds of years old were destroyed in the Great War. Some of them were rebuilt. It is definitely not the same.
    And no one even pretends to claim otherwise. At best you get a poor facsimile of what was there before.

    That makes a point that I've been considering... that these people weren't being questioned in a law seminar or constitutional law examination. They were being asked questions in a setting that was political and their answer should have been presented in that way.

    There have been several well written and considered articles about this matter but this one in the Atlantic made another good point...

    https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/a...nn-free-speech-congressional-hearings/676278/

    ...

    When pressed by Stefanik, the presidents kept claiming a supposedly ironclad commitment to free speech as the reason they would not be able to punish calls for a genocide of Jews. But each of their institutions has failed lamentably to protect their own scholars’ free speech—by canceling lectures by visiting academics, pushing out heterodox faculty members, and trying to revoke the tenure of professors who have voiced views far less hateful than advocating genocide.

    Some of the retractions also don't make any sense. As that points out...

    Harvard published a statement from Gay on X (formerly Twitter) suggesting that her critics had misunderstood her: “Calls for violence or genocide against the Jewish community, or any religious or ethnic group are vile, they have no place at Harvard, and those who threaten our Jewish students will be held to account.”

    Sooooo, hang on.... calling for genocide of Jews, (i.e. killing all of them), IS allowable because of 'mah free speech'. But 'threatening Jewish students' ISN'T? How does that work then?

    So we're gonna kill all of them EXCEPT the ones at our own institution so they don't need to worry. Yeah, that makes sense :)

    :rolleyes:

    EXACTLY!!! Personally I don't trust them and the fact I know nothing about them just proves they're hiding something.

    And did anyone notice that she is jewish? A self-hating jew, perhaps. Otherwise, why would she have the same answers as the other presidents who are under fire?

    You are denying either agency or rationality for the Muslim world. That’s kinda racist.

    I didn't realize you have an expertise on racism. you sound like you are some authority on that matter, specially when addressing POCs. Kudos! #Whitedudesplainingracism.

    You’re right. Muslims come from so many different races. It wasnt racism, but it was bigotry/prejudice.

    how would you react to someone defending a racist by saying, you know how men are when they see a woman in a short skirt? I hope you’d be appalled.

    One university president down, how many to go? Is the replacement going to be a right wing anti-Islamic Trumper goon?

    A chance for the American right to further destabilize education
