The whole story is about Im Tirtzu's response to the radical leftist professors at Gazit's university who are calling for the total suspension of academic freedom for all Israeli universities. It's astounding that Gazit is shocked into action by Im Tirtzu's (wrong, in my opinion) strategy, but is silent about the call by BGU professors for a worldwide boycott of not just BGU, but all Israeli higher education. These same Ben Gurion U professors (Gordon and Berkovitch for example) demand that the world cut all ties with Israeli universities and ban Israeli academics from all academic activity outside Israel. This is not an issue of "mccarthyism" but rather Stalinist academic fascism. Gazit should be embarrassed that his beloved university is now the platform from which academic mccarthyism is being preached.
