The idiotic racist troll Quackquack's known as a fanatical lying propagandist for Israel.
Quackquack's completely ignorant and disdainful of the norms of academic historical scholarship.
If Quackquack were to pay (assuming that he could meet the minimum academic requirements
for admission) the University of Exeter (UK) to learn history from Ilan Pappe (an Israeli Jew),
then I doubt that Ilan Pappe would assign the watching of any YouTube videos.
I already expect that Quackquack will refuse to read any of Ilan Pappe's books.

University of Exeter in the United Kingdom, director of the university's European Centre
for Palestine Studies, and co-director of the Exeter Centre for Ethno-Political Studies.
Pappé was born in Haifa, Israel. Prior to coming to the UK, he was a senior lecturer in
political science at the University of Haifa (1984–2007) and chair of the Emil Touma
