Brandeis University pulls Palestinian art from exhibit

Censorship“If there be time to expose through discussion the falsehood and fallacies, to avert the evil by the process of education, the remedy to be applied is more speech, not enforced silence..” — Justice Louis D. Brandeis
The Boston Herald reports:

Brandeis University [Named for the late Justice Louis D. Brandeis of the U.S. Supreme Court] officials removed from an exhibit in the school’s library images that depict Palestinian children bloodied and injured. The paintings by Palestinian teenagers were requested by Lior Halperin, an Israeli Jewish student at Brandeis who wanted to bring the Palestinian viewpoint to campus. But school officials say the paintings were too one-sided and they were removed four days into a two-week exhibit. Halperin calls the school’s action “outrageous.”

    Someone has to tell these people that they are, uh, not helping.
