Cuomo Hits SUNY Faculty on Biased Actions of Prof

NEW YORK (JTA) —
New York Governor Mario
Cuomo issued a denuncia-
tion last week of the faculty
of the State University
(SUNY) at Stony Brook for
failing to openly oppose the
teachings of a faculty
member linking Zionism
and racism.

Cuomo also said that the
teaching of Prof. Ernest
Dube was "intellectually
dishonest and pernicious
because it is designed to
serve as a justification for
genocide in the form of a
completion of the 'final solu-
tion' annihilation of the
state of Israel."
A spokesperson told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that the governor issued the
statement after members of
the anti-Defamation
League of Bnai Brith met
with the governor's staff in
New York City, but stressed

Declaring he was not cer-

Dube by the faculty com-

that if the report of that
committee "is posited in
such a way as to make it
possible to construe its
meaning as an endorsement
of the doctrine" equating
Zionism with racism "or the
soundness of its reasoning,
then I reject that report."

professor from the Ben-
Gurion University of the
Negev, who sent a letter
to university officials as-
serting that Dube "em-
ployed his position for
the propagation of per-
sonal ideology and racist
biases."
In his letter asking for a
formal investigation of Dr.
Dube's teaching on race,
Troen said he was acting on
a complaint from a student
and submitted Dube's
course materials as evi-
dence. Troen has since re-
turned to Israel.
