Dear Daniel,

I am the president of the David Horowitz Freedom Center which has submitted the ad “Palestinian Wall of Lies” to the Daily Spectator, which you have rejected. (The text of the ad is available at As this is a First Amendment issue critical to a free press, and since a slightly modified version of this ad has appeared in the UCLA Daily Bruin (February 25, 2011) please specify which passages of our ad you find inappropriate, political, prejudicial or inflammatory. Please also assure me that you have never run an advertisement critical of Israel or supportive of Palestinian rights or causes. Please also provide me a copy with the Spectator’s definition of “political” for the purposes of this policy.

Thank you,

    Exclusive material, thank you to the writer. It is actually incomprehensible in my opinion at present, however in common, the usefulness and importance is mind-boggling. With thanks and all the best…

  2. I was really glad to find your post Columbia University (Daily Spectator) | Wall of Lies.

  3. I’ve bookmarked at so my friends can see it too. I used Columbia University (Daily Spectator) | Wall of Lies so it was a good title.

    I enjoy you because of every one of your efforts on this web page. My mom loves engaging in investigations and it’s easy to see why. A lot of people learn all relating to the lively manner you make advantageous thoughts on your web blog and as well invigorate participation from others on that point then our girl is understanding so much. Have fun with the rest of the new year. You’re the one carrying out a dazzling job.

  5. Hey mate! I really respect what you’re providing here. Keep going that way.

  6. My brother recommended I might like this website. He was entirely right. This post actually made my day. You can not imagine just how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!
    , i also added to my bookmark!

  7. Hi Jawienir,
    Thanks you for your post, I have 5 family members (first cousins) that are graduates from that school, and all of them are top notch students and in HS they were top 5 of their graduating class.

    “”It seems that there is yet another radical professor from the neighborhood who spent a lot of time with Barack Obama going back several years,””

    i wonder if she even ever sat in an ivy league university, because I highly doubt it. If she only had the brains, she would have known, that most ivy league professor do worldwide work unlike little state university professors who just only teach.

    Kinda like Tony Blair who got a job at Yale or Princeton not sure, as a Professor to teach about God and Politics.

    So its like a person taking Blair’s class or just knowing him through daily meetings getting accused by someone else of now being favoring british politics.

    Btw Only the world’s elite of the elite smart ones go to the ivy league universities, (the academic scholarship ones). Not the you know daddy is a governor, so let me send my son with his C average to Yale
    Keep up the good work
