Somewhere...

...Yassir Arafat is smiling...

An Ottawa university professor accused in the deadly terrorist bombing of a French synagogue nearly 30 years ago is expected to resume teaching at Carleton University this week.

Hassan Diab, who is accused of murdering four people in the 1980 bombing, will begin teaching a part-time introductory sociology course at Carleton two days a week between now and the middle of August.

Hopefully Arafat is smiling because he enjoys having the barbed dick of Satan shoved up his ass.

Remind me again while we are still chasing down Nazis in their 80s and 90s?

Oh, yeah: because its the right thing to do.

Can you imagine the left's reaction if Jim Keegstra tried to start teaching again?

"greg says... 'the barbed dick of Satan'"

when i first posted this one, a similar thought regarding the darkest reaches of hell did come to mind... but i have to confess... not nearly as pithily expressed as this.

now, please excuse me while i clean the coffee off my keyboard.

JA Goneaux sez..."Remind me again while[sic] we are still chasing down Nazis in their 80s and 90s?"

We should also be hounding "Chekists" (geriatric veterans of the Soviet and East Bloc secret police forces) with the same vigour. But we're not.

Frank Dimant, B'Nai Brith Canada's executive vice president, said it is "deplorable" that the university found nothing wrong with hiring Diab in the first place.

"The conditions of Diab's bail do not even allow him to leave his home alone or to own a cell phone, but Carleton officials believe that it is fine for them to make him a member of their faculty?

The last place in the world where this man belongs is in a university classroom, in front of impressionable students," said Dimant.
