Editorial Reviews

Review

". . . Richard Cravatts is one of this rare breed of scholars who must be taken seriously and who are thankfully not yet extinct [and this book] makes for indispensable reading. . .Cravatts pulls no punches, relentlessly anatomizing the pedagogic bias currently in place ..."

--DAVID SOLWAY, FrontPage Magazine
  

"If you are only going to read one book on the rampant anti-Semitic and anti-Israel campaign on American campuses, this is it."  
--EFRAIM KARSH, Director, Middle East Forum

From the Back Cover

"Richard L. Cravatts has recently emerged as a leading voice against the resurgence of anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism on American college and university campuses. In Genocidal Liberalism, Cravatts details the darkest problems facing Jewish students today and provides specific solutions for how the worst universities can be turned around. Most readers will be shocked by the stories that Cravatts has to tell."
--KENNETH L.MARCUS, President, The Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law and former Staff Director, U.S. Commission on Civil Rights 
                                                                                                                                             
"Cravatts vividly documents the jihad against Jews and Israel on the American campus. His important study should inspire the necessary counter-jihad.
--DANIEL PIPES, President of the Middle East Forum and founder of Campus Watch
 
"Richard Cravatts' insightful book graphically illustrates the double-standard that dominates so much of today's rhetoric surrounding the Middle East. Just as the United States can be rightfully accused of being less than even-handed in the region because of its strategic relationship with Israel, so too can Arab leaders be similarly accused - who complain mightily of perceived Israeli mistreatment but then turn a deaf ear to Palestinian pleas for humanitarian assistance. While most of this can be attributed to the politics of national self-interest, academe should be held to a higher standard in which it provides a detached platform to facilitate the kind of thoughtful exchange that gives all sides their just due."
--DR. DOUGLAS M. JOHNSTON, President, International Center for Religion & Diplomacy and author of Religion, Terror, and Error: U.S. Foreign Policy and the Challenge of Spiritual Engagement
 
"Richard Cravatts' . . . words are a difficult lesson, but an important education. The book is so important that it should be required reading for all North American university administrators."
--MERYLE KATES, Executive Director, Advocates for Civil Liberties, Toronto

18 of 21 people found the following review helpful By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on February 26, 2012
Format: Paperback
There is a certain set of ideals inherent in the university system. First,the idea of objective scholarship.Second,the value of free and unfettered inquiry which opens all opinion to doubt, test and question. Along with this is the ideal of honest dialogue and debate in effort to achieve the truth.
This book gives a shocking picture of the violation of these ideals, of bias and intimidation, including physical intimidation prevalent in areas of the university today.These violations come from a new most unholy alliance of radical Islamic campus groups with those who on the surface are their ideological opponents, those on the liberal Left. This book focuses on how the Liberal Left has become radicalized and come more and more to focus on demonization of Israel.
It is disheartening to learn from this book how many of the finest institutions of higher learning in this country have taken huge grants from Saudi Arabia and other Arab sources to institute and control anti- Semitic Middle East Studies Departments. It is dismaying to see the way contradictory opinions have been marginalized and given no fair hearing. It is disgusting to see how ideologically totalitarian scholars have made factual reality their enemy.
Certain lesser known universities like UC Irvine, San Francisco State, Canada's York University have been particularly vicious centers of anti-Semitic intimidation but NYU , Columbia Harvard , among others have seen disturbing incidents.
Much of this is done under the guise of a phony human rights agenda which always
singles out one state and one people. This has been done with far less than adequate outcry by university officials. It has been done too without adequate Media reporting of the kinds of terror-tactics used by the extreme Leftist groups.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book explains why so many academics have lost their way and blame Israel for all the problems in the Middle East - whether it is the Israel/Palestine argument or the failures of the 'Arab Spring'. Some academics are anti-Zionist for acceptable reasons but too often anti-Judaism comes to the surface of many of the criticisms of Israel. The book attempts (and succeeds) in determining why this has happened, and is a warning to academics that they must examine all the facts before coming to a reasoned decision. This is an important book and should be read by all academics and the general public who want to know what is happening in universities and colleges.

I admit I have not read the book, so I am not going to criticize it. I would just like to point out that the "unholy alliance" that is referred to is the alliance between the leftists and the Islamic community. From the reviews, the apparently excellent book discusses the university anti-Semitism emanating from the Left, with only passing reference to Saudi money. My question to those who have read the book: Is there any discussion of Islamic anti-Semitism per se and its origins in the Koran and the sayings of Muhammad? Standard Islamic doctrine is irretrievably anti-Semitic, and it motivates all mosques and Moslem community organizations including the Muslim Student Association which has been leading the anti-Israel campaigns at the universities. If Islamic anti-Semitism is not discussed in the book, it certainly ought to be.

Richard Cravatts is no expert on Jewish affairs. He is only writing this for publicity and money. He has no concern for Israel. He is a fraud. If you look him up on Google you'll that before 5 years ago Dr.Cravatts never wrote anything about Israel. HE's been fired from numerous jobs ,yet continues to be his own best publicity.He writes his own reviews.He lies on taxes about lectures and book sales. Both his resumje and biography is a lie. Beware!
