On September 27, 2013, Mr. Mark Bruzonsky will give a presentation at Purdue University Calumet. The title of his presentation is: “America and the Middle East—So Many Wars, So Little Peace, WHY?" According to Purdue University Calumet's own advertising, Dr. Kamalipour was “instrumental in bringing Bruzonsky to Purdue Calumet" (here).
Because I am interested in the Middle East, I decided to “google” Mr. Bruzonsky. And, I came across his blog (here). His blog is, well, “fascinating.” “Fascinating” in the sense that it promotes rank anti-Semitism, or what I like to affectionately call Jew hatred. Yes, yes, I know, Mr. Bruzonsky is Jewish (or put differently, a “so-called” Jew). So what? This fact only makes his rank peddling of Jew hatred more disgusting, not less so. Purdue University Calumet, in promoting Mr. Bruzonsky’s presentation, tells us that Mr. Bruzonsky brings “keen” and “impressive insight” to the Middle East (see here).
So what sort of “keen” and “impressive insight” does Mr. Bruzonsky bring to bear on his view of the Middle East? Let’s take a look!

Zionism has “infiltrated” the U.S. (here) – like a plague or disease you know.
In general Jews and Israel are the problem; the examples of his blog postings to demonstrate this fact are endless ( Download Article VI; full blog posted 9/14/2013).
Mr. Bruzonsky uses age-old canards that have been used to smear the Jewish people,and now Israel. Because an image is worth a thousand words, here is just a sampling of the rank Jew hating visual propaganda that litters the pages of Mr. Bruzonsky’s blog.
If this is what tolerance and advocating for global understanding looks like, I think I will pass, thank you.
But think of this: while Mr. Bruzonsky is welcomed with open arms – this so-called “Jew” who peddles vile Jew hatred and blames Jews/Israel for creating and perpetuating Middle Eastern problems and conflict – another Jew – Ms. Peggy Shapiro – was denied a speaking engagement at Purdue University Calumet (here and here). Apparently, this child of Holocaust survivors, this accomplished woman who works on behalf of Jews and is a tireless advocate for Israel through StandWithUs – she was simply “too controversial” for Purdue University Calumet faculty and administrators.
While Purdue University resources can go to the Jew who peddles rank anti-Semitism and is a vicious critic of Israel using the most vile images and arguments, those same resources are not available for a Jew who is the child of Holocaust survivors and is an avid supporter of Israel.
What can you, the Hoosier taxpayer do to stop this discrimination and double-standard where only left-wing, radical anti-American, anti-Israel speakers are welcomed on campus? Write your State legislator (legislative contact) , or Purdue University's State legislator, Sheila Klinker (email@example.com); write or call your Governor, Mike Pence, (317-232-4567 or email address) and write or call the President of Purdue University, Mitch Daniels (765-494-4600 or firstname.lastname@example.org), or Purdue University Board of Trustees (email@example.com). ALL VIEWS should be welcomed on campus – not just those that the University's administration happens to agree with.A Global Anti-Hate Speech Petition on Behalf of P
