Letters to the editor:
UCSD was proper to permit pro-Palestinian speaker
Kudos to UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep Khosla for supporting Palestinian Taher Herzallah’s proper to talk on UCSD’s campus (“Pro-Palestinian speaker at UC San Diego sparks outrage among campus Jewish community,” May 12, La Jolla Light).
Criticism of Israel is legit. The chancellor is doing his job: encouraging divergent political speech and rejecting a dominant group’s efforts to discriminate towards a minority group with political beliefs anathema to it.
What a tragic irony. Not so way back, one other UCSD administrator, Roger Revelle, supported Jews towards housing discrimination in La Jolla. Revelle’s efforts allowed us to buy our house in The Shores. Discrimination is discrimination, no matter its type.
