”I thought there would be some complaints, then it would be forgotten.”

An online version of an article about the trip published in the major Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds was taken down by the publishers, reportedly because of the invective in the comments section.

Critics of the trip also included newspaper columnists, TV analysts and fellow researchers in the West Bank.

Al-Quds University issued a statement saying Professor Dajani and the students were not representatives of the university.

Yes. Let’s give these people a country. What’s the worst that could happen?
