University of California-Davis student paper rejects pro-Israel ad as “controversial”
I’ve mentioned that a loyal reader was, at his own expense, placing ads featuring my “Apartheid?” posters in various California newspapers.
Here is the ad:
So due to the fact that we’d be taking money to publish an ad
portraying a controversial opinion, we will not be able to publish the
attached advertisement. Ultimately, such decisions are made by Mark
Ling, our Editor in Chief, who can be reached by email at

Apparently, at UC Davis, saying that Israel is anything other than an apartheid regime is considered “controversial.”
UPDATE: The California Aggie is an independent newspaper written by UCD students; it is not an official UCD paper. I corrected the post.
