Bigot of the Hour: Husam El-Qoulaq


Winner: Husam El-Qoulaq (religious bigotry; ethnic bigotry)

Some fun facts surround this case [see here] of historical prejudicial stereotypes of Jews. Firstly, Harvard Law tried in vain to suppress the name of the Muslim student. Why? (Rhetorical question!) Second, El-Qoulaq himself said, in his self-serving apology, he had no idea that simply calling the Jewish speaker “smelly” was stereotypically prejudicial.

Nice one, Husam! Another bright sparks at HLS!

I’m question (sic) about the odor of Tzipi Livni, very smelly, and I was just wondering? [Husam El-Qoulaq, ‘question’ to Israeli politician Tipi Livni]
