Aside from the obvious problems with Im Tirtzu's demand for academic housecleaning I'm especially impressed with the irony of their position. They have joined the very few -- on the left -- who would boycott an Israeli university: in their case by actively seeking to cut university donations. In that light, their objections to Israeli academics calling for an intellectual boycott of Israel, a boycott that I strongly oppose, seems paradoxical, to say the least. Do unto others as you woudl have others do unto you?
