The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
Under the term of "science" we usually consider such areas of knowledge as chemistry, physics, biology, etc. Those are the areas where people can keep their political views, be the latter "left" or "right", and devote themselves to their professions, without any harm to the country and the society. But there is no such thing as _impartial_political_science. Anyone teaching that subject inevitably brings his/her personal political views into the classroom. One and the same people can be called "militants" or "terrorists" or "freedom fighters", depending on the political position of the academic who delivers a lecture to the students. Its either politics, or science; and if it's politics, the academic appointments are the matter of concern for the whole society, not for the academic community only.
