Incredible Liberal Babble and Incompetence from a College Professor

As someone who is in the academy, I find this embarrasing.  You really need to read this story to believe it.  Here's an excerpt:
According to American University professor Hillary Mann Leverett, anti-Semitism doesn't exist in the Middle East.
The Senior Adjunct Professorial Lecturer at the School of International Service recently appeared on MSNBC and claimed that since she has personally seen a Jewish hospital and kosher restaurants in Iran, the idea that anti-Semitism exists in the Middle East is false.
"There is not this deep-seated Arab-Jewish or-you know, Muslim-Jewish animosity. There's not an anti-Semitism in the Middle East the way that there was in Europe, which is based on race; which is based on color; which is based on genes and biology," Leverett said in her segment on Melissa Harris-Perry. "That doesn't exist in the Middle East. There's no history of that in the Middle East."
One wonders if her blindness is both willful and possibly an expression of a latent anti-semitism on her part.  [ht: instapundit.com]
