Further adding to the squalor is that this was the Knicks’ second tragicomedy of the week. Previously, team president Phil Jackson appeared to subtweet a shot at team star Carmelo Anthony, which we covered in depth here. Jackson later tweeted a garbled missive seeming to argue that his post had been “misunderstood.” But by then the damage had been done..
But it wasn’t said to my face I was extremely shocked that someone would actually have the nerve to say that.”We hadn’t done anything, we weren’t promoting anything Zionist, we were just basically a Jewish social group trying to attract the Jewish community.”Mr Pyne has called on universities to take a firm line against racism.”Free speech in Australia does not extend to threats, intimidation and physical harassment. Incidents such as these have no place on campus or anywhere else,” a spokesman for the minister said.The ANU students initially reported the incidents to their students association and then the Australasian Union of Jewish Students, which made the official complaint to the university.An ANU spokeswoman said Professor Baker has raised the allegations with the Socialist Alternative in writing, to which a response is required by 17 March.”As you will appreciate the university views these matters very seriously.
