I have read Kimmerling's articles --those written in English--for years and I can tell you that: 1. Baruch absolutely opposed the academic boycott of Israel. He wrote several articles in which he criticized the whole idea. 2. While Baruch was strongly critical of the occupation, he was not anti-Israel. He wrote me once that he "loved this crazy country." 3. He could have gotten Italian citizenship through his wife but refused "being a patriot." He was a dissident, to be sure, but it is not fair to say that he was anti-Israel because, in fact, he loved the country very much.
