Do you know who your kids are listening to?
This morning SMW read on Blazing Cat Fur that Mads Gilbert (who call himself a doctor, and who is in fact a medical doctor but I refuse to put Dr. in front of his name) is doing a tour of Canadian and American universities this month, where no doubt he will be spewing anti Semitic, pro terror lies.
BCF has provided this link to his tour schedule, which starts on 19 January in Ottawa and includes stops across the country and in Chicago and New York.
Who is Mads Gilbert? After you have checked out BCF's link, check out the below.
Gilbert is a radical Marxist and a member of the political Red (Rodt) party, a revolutionary socialist party in Norway. He has been a pro-Palestinian activist since the 1970's and travelled to Lebanon in support of the Palestinians during the first Lebanon war in 1982. He has long been a vocal opponent of Israel and the U.S. Gilbert has acknowledged that he cannot separate politics from medicine, stating, "there is little in medicine that is not politics." He even criticizes the group Doctors Without Borders for providing medical assistance to both sides in a conflict instead of taking a strong stance and supporting only one party.
That is not all CAMERA has to say about Mads. Click the link above to read about his support for 9/11.
NGO Monitor, an Israeli human rights watchdog group, says Gilbert presents one-sided criticism of Israel to the media and has accused Israel of deliberately targeting civilians in its Gaza offensive to stop Hamas from firing rockets into Israel.
In addition to being supportive of the terrorist organization Hamas, Gilbert has voiced support for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Gerald Steinberg, executive director of NGO Monitor, said Gilbert's characterization of the situation in Gaza is "in the form of incitement of hatred."
Many of you may also remember the video that circulated last year, featuring Mads Gilbert trying to save the life of an injured Palestinian child which ended up being pulled by several news channels after wide reports that it was in a fake.
Note: Hey, it might be a good idea for you to forward this link (or any of the links above) to students you know attending the universities listed on the tour. You know, so they don't go to this talk and believe Gilbert's garbage just because he calls himself a doctor and doctor's are supposed to be like smart and honest and stuff.
