I wonder how the thousands of US Armed Forces service members (and their dependents) stationed in Europe feel about the following.

In another newsgroup [email protected]   (Kevin Riley OKeeffe) revealed::

Louisiana State University Professor David Perlmutter has called upon the "State of Israel" to use its illegal nuclear weaponry to destroy all of human civilization, in a recent opinion piece published by the Los Angeles Times. The address below will take you there.


For those of you who would prefer not to read the entire piece, the following paragraph-length quotation from it should be more than sufficient to give you the general flavor:

"Israel has been building nuclear weapons for 30 years. The Jews understand what passive and powerless acceptance of doom has meant for them in the past, and they have ensured against it. Masada was not an example to follow--it hurt the Romans not a whit, but Samson in Gaza? With an H-bomb? What would serve the Jew-hating world better in repayment for thousands of years of massacres but a Nuclear Winter. Or invite all those tut-tutting European statesmen and peace activists to join us in the ovens?"

If an equivalently vile and disgusting screed were to appear on Al-Jazeera or written anywhere in the Arab and/or Muslim press, we would all willingly and rightly denounce it for what it would clearly be: a terrorist manifesto. The fact that a Louisiana State University Professor is not even criticized by his fellow academicians after publishing such a treasonous rant in a major U.S. newspaper is both sad and totally revolting.

John Ashcroft should at least consider sending a contingent of FBI agents to interrogate, if not outright arrest, this proponent of nuclear terrorism. That is what would happen if this man were an Arab and/or a Muslim, but because he is a Jew, the government and the media, as well as his own university, all work to protect him.

This loathsome state of affairs simply must come to an end! I strongly urge all patriotic Americans to contact Louisiana State University officials, Louisiana Gov. Mike Foster and all other relevant officials and impart to them your desire to see Professor Perlmutter taken off the public payroll. I, for one, would rather see my tax dollars shredded, than used to pay this viper to spread his venomous filth under the auspices of Louisiana State University!

Rather than writing this guy with email which he will just zap, try contacting LSU chancellor Emmert, or Channel 2 WBRZ news in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Or the local newspaper, the Morning Advocate, at (225) 383-1111 or P.O. Box 588, Baton Rouge, LA. 70821 and see if they will pick up the story.

However, if you feel the need to vent and would like to personally tell Professor Perlmutter how you feel about his Los Angeles Times opinion piece, you may contact him at the following e-mail address: [email protected]
