A professor at that Boston College is warning her students about the dangers of Israels presence in the West Bank. Recently, Ph.D. student of the College of Arts and Sciences Rebecca Clark accused sociology professor Eve Spangler of perpetuating anti-Israel ideas and hosting anti-Israel events, Morgan Chalfont reported in The Observer at Boston College on November 16, 2010.
Specifically, Clark explains that Spangler organizes her SC367 course and its supplementary Birthright Unplugged trip to the West Bank so that it perpetuates her anti-Israel opinions, Chalfont wrote. Clark claims that Spanglers 2009 syllabus for the course offers a particularly stark example of this outlook.
One essay question she quoted does seem particularly loaded. We have examined three images of the Israeli occupation of Palestine: genocide, apartheid, and sociocide, the question reportedly states. Which of these organizing concepts, if any do you find most persuasive and why? Accuracy in Academia has sought comment from Spangler on this course but thus far none has been forthcoming.

Catholic theologian and philosopher (and Boston college professor) says that BC stands for Barely Catholic.
Whoops, I forgot to name the person my post referred to, Peter Kreeft.
This isn’t just indoctrination. She expects her students to participate in anti-Israel activism. They are required to travel there. Who pays for that? Check the Solomonia.com website for a great breakdown of this course. Contact Boston4Israel.com to get the message to BC.
