A college can co-sponsor any speaker that they wish as far as I am concerned. I strongly disagree with Barghouti's goals. The people who oppposed the college from co-sponsoring the event ended up giving the event a ton of free publicity. Omar Barghouti spoke at UC Irvine this week and there were about 25-30 people who attend it. I bet a lot more will now attend the talk at Brooklyn College. I hope people who consider themselves pro-Palestinian also agree that zionist speakers should be allowed to speak and be co-sponsored by colleges. And the speakers and those in the audience should not have to face repeated disruptions during the talk becasue they think the speaker is xxx or xxxx.
