"Professor resigns abruptly: Berlin and other students in the class said they were concerned that Diskin taught the class with a bias toward Israel. He said the main textbook in the class focuses on the history of Israel, with no counterpart book about Arab states. "We would learn about so much about Israel and specific institutions, but we learned very little about the other states, the Arab states, the Palestinian people … it has to be especially at GW," said Berlin, who is Jewish. "People here are not going to sit down and let professors just tell them how things are if kids think it's another way. Eventually kids just stood up to her."" (thanks Leila)
