Phillips Exeter Academy
Phillips Exeter Academy is a $40,000 a year boarding school in Exeter, New Hampshire for grades 9-12.
This web site is dedicated to documenting the overt agenda of teachers, departments, speakers, clubs, clergy, and administrators, in demonizing Israel while promoting a pro-Palestinian agenda.
The students are presented with a narrow, one sided version of events in the Middle East.
The purpose of this site is not to force PEA to adopt a pro-Israel or Zionist agenda. When you are given $160,000 to teach a student for four years and you're sitting on an $854,000,000 endowment, you have an obligation to educate, not indoctrinate.
These students are clearly not getting a balanced education. Instead, they are force fed a steady diet of propaganda, lies, and half truths; subsequently, PEA has slipped to 6th place on the Forbes list of top prep schools.
When the school invites Student Assembly speakers to discuss dicey political, religious, environmental, or social issues, rest assured that a hard left ideologue will show up.
The students are not as naive as some people think.
When PEA does bring in a token conservative, they are typically Milquetoast and less credentialed.
On one particular occasion, a conservative did address the Student Assembly; Marc Steyn.
Mr. Steyn unexpectedly chose radical Islam as his topic.
When he was done speaking, the students gave him a rousing standing ovation.
After the ovation, he was subsequently brow beaten right in front of the student body by PEA's Middle East Adviser Robert Azzi.
Robert embarrassed the school by accusing the guest of being a liar. Azzi ignored the students who fact checked Steyn in real time with their cell phone devices to prove to Azzi that Steyn was not lying.
Speculation around campus, is that his actions in the Marc Steyn brouhaha cost Azzi his position at PEA.
For years, Azzi facilitated invitations to pro-Palestinian speakers and he could be seen leading them from class to class like rock stars to further promote PEA's agenda.
Not long after that incident, Mr. Azzi "resigned" and vanished from PEA.
