Marquette and the Jewish Community: Stunning Insensitivity

When Marquette scheduled a panel to discuss the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, in what time slot did they put it?

Saturday morning. On the Sabbath. At a time when many observant Jews would be obligated to stay away.

Given that the panel is absurdly biased against Israel, and features speakers who condone and apologize for terrorism against the Jewish state, this is adding insult to injury.

If the scheduling isn’t intentional – and we generally prefer to see incompetence where others might see conspiracy – it certainly indicates a stunning insensitivity to the local Jewish community.
