It's official, Arun Gandhi's Resignation Accepted

Arun Gandhi's resignation has been accepted by the University of Rochester. A newspaper in India reports that Gandhi

... sent his resignation by email to Joel Seligman, president of the University of Rochester, which hosts the prestigious institute, in upstate New York. Seligman asked him to sort out the matter in person with the institute's board.

"I resigned to relieve pressure on the university and the institute. I met the institute's board Thursday on my return and they went by my decision," Gandhi told IANS.

He said the storm was mainly in the Jew-dominated Rochester community.

A few days ago we saw another journalist in India write of "America’s omnipotent Jewish community." Now another journalist uses the phrase "Jew-dominated Rochester community."

Earth to Sally Quinn and Jon Meacham:

One expression of contempt for Jews triggers another, and another, and another. Take a look at the comments on the site you "moderate." They are not very moderate. In fact, many of them are vile, intemperate and hateful. And they are all published under your names, and under the logos of Newsweek and The Washington Post.

And by the way, Gandhi also reportedly told the paper "In six months, this storm will blow over and I can get back to the institute, if necessary."
