Joseph Massad takes on Jean Paul Sartre, Zionist agent

Fifty years ago, people may look back with horror and amazement on the fact that Joseph Massad was allowed to become a tenured professor at Columbia University. On the other hand, it is equally possible that they look back and say to their wives, "Praise be to Allah, he was before his time." It depends who wins.

Solomonia draws our attention to this screed by Joseph Massad in Al Ahram. Massad appears to have written the article in 2003; still, the views he expresses tell us a great deal about the character of anti-Zionism.
Sol makes wise observations about Massad's "bizarre bigotry, including a repeat of his theory that it's actually the Zionists (and not people like him who are particularly interested in erasing Israel — but nowhere else — from the map) who are the real anti-Semites."
What triggered this rant from Massad, a Columbia University academic with scant regard for scholarship and a predilection for near-hysterical argumentation? This time, it's the late French philosopher, Jean-Paul Sartre. Sartre passed away in 1980, but Massad is firm that his legacy is the main reason why Palestinians receive such little sympathy from European leftist intellectuals.
Yes, you did read that correctly. Most of us bemoan the fixation so much of the European left has with the cause of Palestine, to the detriment of other pressing issues, but Massad wants more. Much more.
He wants European leftists - those that haven't already done so, that is - to recognize that Zionism is racism, that Israel should be dissolved as apartheid South Africa was dissolved, that Jews have been transformed into antisemites, while Palestinians have become Jews.
