From MIT:

This talk examines the relation between Islamophobia as the dominant form of racism today and the ecological crisis. It looks at the three common ways in which the two phenomena are seen to be linked: as an entanglement of two crises, metaphorically related with one being a source of imagery for the other and both originating in colonial forms of capitalist accumulation. The talk proposes a fourth way of linking the two: an argument that they are both emanating from a similar mode of being, or enmeshment, in the world, what is referred to as ‘generalised domestication.’

Ghassan Hage is Future Generation Professor in the School of Philosophy, Anthropology and Social Inquiry, University of Melbourne.
Intersectionality means that everything you fashionably hate is related to each other. And we have ersatz professors who can enumerate four different ways for each relationship!

Incidentally, Hage is a Maronite Christian, not a Muslim.

And not surprisingly this liberal "academic" supports boycotting academics, but only if they have committed the cardinal crime of living in Israel.

And while Hage seems to freely admit that he hates Israel with a passion, he writes papers about how emotional involvement is in conflict with academic imperatives. And he apparently decided that maintaining objectivity, or even pretending to, is very important any more.

I found this anecdote of his interesting:


As with all academic frauds, Hage uses lots of big words and makes little sense. They seem to enjoy building edifices of self-supporting logic that have nothing to do with reality, but once the structure is built they can examine their make-believe worlds and pretend that this is research.


We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
