    Good article. But one can also say that this week, as shameful as it is, fosters debate and discussion. Furthermore, IAW gets people talking, including the average joe, about the middle east and how it effects ones own situation back home – who would normally stay silent. Additionally, just like Toronto’s ford scandal, it poses the question – ‘Is all publicity good publicity’?

    Academia fosters the presence of debate and critique of such learned materials – in a safe manner. The biggest question that IAW poses, that of which most relevant in todays society – especially after Charlie Hebdo. It is not the argument per se but the argument itself – to where that very line, to where freedom of speech and ones opinion crosses over, and enters hate speech and discrimination.
