We have a scandal at the moment in the academic scene. A New testament professor retires, as an expert in Judaism he wanted to close his speech with a call towards moderate muslim academics to end the widespread myth of Jewish caibalism, a story the nazi's used as propaganda against the Jews and which is taken over by the arab world now. The Dean of the Utrecht University and his counsil asked the professor to come together a fortnight prior to his final speech (that would be attended by many academics). During this gathering they suddenly 'forced' the professor to delete this issue from his speech (a gotspe for his has written important scientific material about it, already a decade ago). The board of the university is afraid of hurting the muslim community. Freedom in science only exists by the grace of the audience.
