I've never been a supporter of the academic boycott, believing that academia should rise above political issues. However, this has to change that stance. Barak is clearly attempting to use academic prestige to add legitimacy to settlements that are illegal under international law. If Israel wishes to abuse academia for political reasons then an academic boycott of Israel is a reasonable response.
