No such thing as a terrorist against Israelis

Prof. AbuKhalil, who teaches at at State University of California, provides a helpful "news" service in which he promotes every possible lie, fantasy and random wish or thought as "truth".  

Here is the latest example from his ever so feverish and fertile mind:

" In that awful book by Daniel Byman, A High Price: The Triumphs and Failures of Israeli Counterterrorism", the author claims that when Mossad murdered Abu Hasan Salamah with a car bomb in Beirut in 1979, that "four innocent bystanders...also perished in the blast." (p. 54).  In reality, the blast killed 9 people and injured"

Let's look at what Byman writes: "four innocent bystanders...also perished in the blast." (p. 54).  

Abu khalil claims that "In reality, the blast killed 9 people and injured..."


According to this source: "The blast killed Salameh and eight other people."

Who were those 8 others? 

According to this source: 

" Salameh's four bodyguards were killed. Four bystanders were also killed."

So, altogether, nine people were killed. Salameh ( "the chief of operations—code name Abu Hassan—for Black September, the organization responsible for the 1972 Munich massacre and other attacks."), his 4 bodyguards (not "innocent" by any stretch of the imagination) and 4 verifiably innocent bystanders.

So where is the lie that Daniel Byman is accused of writing in his book, and that merits a special entry in the "news" according to Abu Khalil's academically learned opinion? 

Is this the type of analysis you expect from an academic who is supposed to teach young students how to obtain information and check the veracity of what they are being fed?

Academic nowadays is a very loose distinction and applies to a throng of people. So he is counted with them. No big deal.
