Arabic professor distributes map without Israel, then pencils it in half-assedly

On the second day of Arabic class, San Diego State University professor distributed a map that had omitted Israel and labeled the land mass where Israel is located as “Palestinian Territories.”

The professor, Ghassan Zakaria, then redistributed the exact same map after sloppily writing “Israel” and generally indicating where the country is, reports KGTV.

The ABC affiliate’s unnamed sources called Zakaria’s new map of the Middle East little better than the old one in the sense that it doesn’t convey Israel’s legitimacy as a sovereign political entity accurately.

Unidentified students had feared academic reprisals if they said anything about the map in class.

“I don’t really believe it was the right place for dialogue,” an anonymous student told KGTV in a prior report. “It is a language class. It’s not a class about conflict.”

Concerned students decided to forward the map to the local branch of a pro-Israeli group called “Stand With Us.”
