So much to say...: Words like "delegitimize" and "pariah" and a phrase like "denying its right to exist" are so extreme that it's laughable. Why do Israelis feel these way? Coming to American campuses in five years..sounds about right maybe even faster. Not because campuses are doing anything wrong or different than years ago..Israel is DIFFERENT that it was. (as stated in the article. I agree with the "golden age for Israel" from the 60's up to '73.) To criticize Israel is very tricky in America because there is the "knee-jerk reaction" and the same all dribble comes out...anti-semitic, "r u denying Israel the right to defend itself"..and other comments that are not germaine to the valid criticism. Lastly, Ambassador Oren's declining to attend nor speak at the JStreet conference was a mistake, a big one. Also, Israel had 8 years of false sense of comfort from Pres Geo W Bush. That Administration which allowed so much tolerance towards Israel was a mistake.
