I am not a "Redneck rightist" or a Likud supporter in fact I have never voted for a right or centre party in all my years in Israel. However the current situation whereby certain leading academics use their considerable power to "push" their extremist anti-Israel beliefs on their students and join in the call to boycott their own universities is simply beyond the realms of acceptable behaviour. Everyone has the right to their own beliefs but how can a professor in an Israeli university call for a boycott on his own place of work or threaten those students who do not accept his dogma? No western democracy would accept such a situation and it is also unacceptable here. I don't think threats are needed but I hope that foreign donors will think hard and long before donating to Israeli universities which allow certain academic members to use their position to delegitimize our country.
