    If what we've heard is true, and professors are stifilng voices in the classroom and forcing their students to participate in specific activities or fail their classes, its worse than religious coersion. Im Tirzu may be controversial, but it is a private movement, not government. And the government should not stifle their activities. However, if professors are stifiling open debate in their classrooms and attempting to indoctrinate their students into a specific philosophy, that is dangerous. I was a student in Tanya Reinhart's linguistics classes in 1996-97. She attempted to mix politics with coursware and would even give forced political based lectures at the beginning of each class so students either had to sit through her brainwashing or risk missing class. The university put that to a stop after a few month. though it seems today's academic leaders think its OK to use the Israeli education system to indoctrinate. If the school system isn't happy with Im Tirtzu they should debate them publicly, and not try to get the government to shut them up. They (left wing circles and Ha'aretz) cry McCarthyism, yet is all seem to be a terrible case of projection.
