I understand that it takes all kinds to push the science forward, but sometimes I wonder about the ways and means of pushing, as well as about the pushers. Like in this case:
Santa Cruz, CA, May 27, 2014 – A California Public Records Act inquiry, requested by AMCHA Initiative, revealed that San Francisco State University (SFSU) Professor Rabab Abdulhadi received more than $7,000 from SFSU to fly to Jordan, the West Bank and Israel to meet with members of known terrorist organizations. Abdulhadi was the faculty advisor to the SFSU knife-wielding student investigated by the FBI and Joint Terrorism Task Force. She was also caught on tape glorifying terrorism to SFSU students.Read the whole article, it is full of twists and turns like a good thriller.
I only ask myself: under what scientific discipline the report on this "research" trip will be filed?
The quite pathetic response of Ms Abdulhadi, an Associate Professor of Ethnic Studies/Race, could be seen here.
And here is a masthead logo from a personal page of Professor Rabab Abdulhadi:
More kudos to SFSU...
