New! on JPost.com: The Hot Potato This is your chance to voice your opinion. We've chosen a controversial / interesting entry that appeared on our site (talkback, blog, etc...) and we want to know what you have to say about it. TODAY'S HOT POTATO: Taken from article: Bad form on campus Talkback #: 21 Talkbacker: Grif, USA Text:Once, during a bookstore panel in protest of of the fatwa against Rushdie, a Muslim student protested, "I too believe in free speech, but surely it cannot apply to religion." This article's assertion that by inviting Kovel SAFE had "undermined the principal safeguard of academic freedom: intellectual responsibility" is no different and misses understanding academic freedom by a country mile. According to them only adherents to an approved orthodoxy should be allowed. Blind Ideologues. What do you think? The ball is in your court now. Click here to respond Previous Hot Potatos
