NOW is the time to FIGHT BACK against the BDS attempt to take over universities and colleges!
According to The Independent (UK):
“The President of the National Union for Students (NUS) has defended the the union’s No Platform policy, claiming places of education should be “safe spaces in which to debate and discuss ideas”.
Malia Bouattia, who was elected NUS President in April, said ‘no platforming’ – a policy that asserts no proscribed person or organisation should be given a platform to speak – helped ensure “engagement, inclusion and accessibility for all”, and denied that it prevented problematic viewpoints from being challenged.
Speaking in an interview aired on the BBC’s Today programme, Ms Bouattia said: “Safe spaces are an application of democratic processes and we want to ensure that spaces of education – student unions and so on – are safe spaces in which to debate and in which to discuss ideas.”
Russia Warns US Not to Intervene in Syria, Threatens to Shoot Down Any Airstrike Attempts
Russia has warned the United States not to intervene militarily in Syria against forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, threatening that it may shoot down any aircraft attempting to launch strikes.
In a bluntly worded statement, a spokesman for Russia’s defense ministry warned that Russia and the Syrian government had deployed sufficient air defenses to block any potential attacks.
It follows rumbling in Washington that the White House may be considering launching limited strikes against some Syrian regime military targets as an alternative option for moving forward in the Syrian conflict after the collapse of U.S.-Russian cease-fire negotiations.
