“I put my job on the line to expose the double-talk we live. We say we are for democracy and we practice autocracy, we say we are for freedom of speech and academic freedom, yet we deny people to practice it.”

JERUSALEM, West Bank, June 10 (UPI) — Professor Mohammad Dajani of Al-Quds University has resigned after he came under fire for taking his students on a field trip to Auschwitz to teach tolerance.
Dajani’s resignation comes after months of death threats, campus riots, and intimidation. The professor, who teaches American studies, took 27 students to Auschwitz concentration camp in March to learn about the Holocaust and the importance of tolerance and empathy.
