Prof. AbuKhalil's Pedagogical Successes

He managed to instill his hatred into at least one of his students: 

"...  one of my students gave me a gift: the book the Deadliest Lies by Abraham Foxman. She said she suffered through the book for a paper she wrote and wanted me to suffer like her. "

Such harmonious alignment of spirit and intellect between teacher and student! And notice the clever student's sense of impeccable timing for both her gift and her explication of it: 

"On the day of the final examination". 

Abe Foxman is AbuKhalil's  bĂȘte noire.

In this case he takes issue with Foxman's definition of antisemitism: 

"criticism of Israel that is intensely biased, unfair, and illogical."(p. 174).  Only a brilliant mind can vomit such pearls. "

No supporter of Israel can ever state or say anything. In AbuKhalil's elegant universe of restraint, delicacy of mind and pious adherence to historical fact, they can only vomit.

When I read AbuKhalil's "news" service,  I often recall how Seinfeld's Elaine Benes describes one of Kramer's girlfriends:

" If you could see her personality it would be like one of the Elephant
Man exhibits, you know where they pull off the sheet and everyone gasps."

Change the gender of the subject and you've got an almost adequate description of AA.
