War criminal at on the loose at Harvard!
This is a brilliant piece of media activism-intervention if I've ever seen one.
An activist group in Boston dedicated to exposing and documenting Harvard University's pattern of admitting and hiring individuals with credible and public records of war crimes and human rights abuses has decided to take action against the University's problematic invitation to former Israeli military chief Dan Halutz, who is currently paticpating in a two-month executive traiing program at the Bussiness School there.
Halutz is known for commanding the indiscriminate slaughter in Lebanon last year. He has also been accused of war crimes for the one-tonne bombed he ordered dropped in a heavily populated civlian area in gaza in 2002 by human rights organizations around the world, including in Israel.
In response, the newly formed Harvard-based Alliance for Justice in the Middle East (AJME) is launching a weeklong search for Halutz, distributing "WANTED" posters, making inquiries, and soliciting the help of the campus community. Activists and community members will converge at Harvard Business School, where he was last spotted, to begin their search.
From their site: "The manhunt will also employ MISSING PERSONS milk cartons, helium balloons, and the Internet."
Halutz will be declared a "fugitive from justice" if he is still missing after two days.
So far, there has been no comment from the University.
