Elisha Wiesel, son of Auschwitz survivor and Nobel Laureate Eli Wiesel, will be speaking at a memorial lecture offered in his father’s name at Boston University on Monday Nov. 8, 2021. Elisha Wiesel’s lecture comes at a particularly dramatic time. Last week, BU hosted Rev. William Barber II, well known for his anti-Israel polemics, as an Elie Wiesel Memorial speaker
It appears Rev. Dr. Barber, II has concluded that Israel-bashing and Jew-baiting are losing strategies when it comes to garnering influence and prestige in American society.

On Monday, Aug. 30, 2021, Rick Wiles declared that Israel was responsible for the death of Christians at the hands of ISIS in Afghanistan and were trying to start a world war.

Maya Zinshtein and Abraham (Abie) haven’t said a word publicly about the well-documented problems with their film. They haven’t admitted to the allegations. They haven’t denied them. They haven’t even tried the old defense that the quotes were fake, but accurate. They’ve said nothing. Not one word.
