In all fairness to the professor and citing the same freedoms of speech I believe the professor is a bigoted anti Jew that is using his position to further his venomous rhetoric and have it be justified and legitimized under the authoritarian guise of his position. It is one thing to take a position that the Israelis are tough on the Palestinians. Quite another to compare it to the genocide of all Jewry. All professors are able and have the right to teach lies. The universities also have the right to censor and eventually fire the professor that is doing so.
