For those of you who have hitherto been ambivalent about an academic and cultural as well as an economic boycott of Israel, you now have the words of Dershowitz to leave you in no doubt as to its urgent necessity: "Looking at Israel’s accomplishments over 62 years and Tel Aviv University’s over 57 years, it would seem to suggest that Israel and its premier research universities have developed in tandem and with symbiosis. And to some degree they have. Israel’s research universities have contributed immeasurably to the defense [war crimes and ongoing and illegal occupation] of Israel by the development of technological advances that support the mission of the IDF. And as Dan Senor and Saul Singer have brilliantly demonstrated in their remarkable book Start Up Nation, the IDF has paid back its debt to Israel’s universities multifold. The IDF has helped train and prepare many of Israel’s most innovative young women and men for the university and then for their roles in research and technology."
