"For the time being, Israel had more, not less freedom of speech than most countries." - S likes to compare itself to "advanced countries", not to "most countries". If you compare to most countries, you can impose lots of restrictions and still come out ahead. There are 34 countries classified by the IMF as having "advanced economies", all democracies, except Hong Kong. Try comparing to these. As far as comparing to the US, Israel cannot hold a candle. If anybody seeks to boycott a university, they can do it as they please or write books denigrating that university. (Writing, and other media is also considered "speech" for constitutional protection.) But how about speaking to students about not serving in the military? You wouldn't tolerate it of course as it is worse than just boycotting a university. But in the US this was common during Vietnam.
