I was amused to see that Prof. Sand considers the British academic community courageous for having unanimously opposed the Iraq war. I was not aware that academics, obsessed as they are with "diversity", considered unanimity and sameness to be such great goods. Furthermore, Prof. Sand would do well to consider that any academic who so much as strays from the accepted line on that conflict risks opprobrium at best, ostracism or the end of his career at worst. What, exactly, does this tell us about academics and bravery? Prof. Sand would do well to peruse the AUT website and see what positions that beacon of uncompromising freedom holds on Cuba, a veritable citadel of free expression and political liberty. As for the boycott: how, exactly, does wounding the academic development of Computer Science and Engineering students constitute a blow for justice?
