CAMERA: Israeli Fascist Nest Hosted Summers At Harvard
May 8, 2009 • 10:58AM

Lawrence Summers — Harvard's president 2001-2006 — waged political war against campus advocates of Middle East peace, on behalf of an Israeli intelligence front of extreme right-wing propagandists, whose operations are centered at Harvard. The Boston-based grouping, "Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America" (CAMERA), shepherded Summers' pro-Israeli-militarist political assault, until Harvard faculty resentment at his McCarthyite tactics led to a "no-confidence" vote and his resignation from the Harvard presidency in February, 2006.

Harvard professor Ruth Wisse, a key sponsor of CAMERA's existence in Boston, often functioned as de facto public spokesman for Summers while he circulated the lie that criticism of Israeli policy is anti-Semitic. Ruth Wisse's husband, Leonard Wisse, is secretary of CAMERA and chairman of its advisory board.

While Summers clung to his post, backed by a British-Boston Brahmin-Wall Street axis against the simmering resentment of the Harvard faculty, he married Ruth Wisse's close friend, Harvard Holocaust-studies/literature Professor Elisa New in December, 2005.

CAMERA co-founder Charles Jacobs also founded the ironically misnamed "American Anti-Slavery Group," which instigated the push for an American war against Sudan, in accord with a century-old British empire hatred for that African nation. In 2003, Charles Jacobs, CAMERA and anti-Muslim racist Daniel Pipes steered Lawrence Summers in the return of a $2.5 million gift to Harvard Divinity School, thereby blocking the creation of an Islamic Studies progam.

Harvard CAMERA leader Ruth Wisse is the Martin Peretz Professor of Yiddish Literature; her professorship was created by Marty Peretz, the neo-conservative editor of New Republic. The trio of Ruth Wisse, Marty Peretz and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, a fanatical defender of Israeli miltarism, were the most strident proponents of Summers in his attacks on Harvard faculty Mideast peace advocates.

Ruth Wisse, from Canada, is a longtime associate of Commentary magazine and its appended neoconservatives such as Norman Podhoretz. This movement arises from the British Empire-loyalist Schiff and Warburg banking families, through their New York investment bank Kuhn Loeb, whose "American Jewish Committee" published Commentary magazine. Kuhn Loeb was in the pro-Hitler Wall Street clique, and ran the political war against Franklin Roosevelt within the otherwise overwhelmingly pro-FDR American Jewish community.
