    Refusing to engage with groups on a subject based on their actions or ideas relevant to that subject is not a boycott. We reject BDS at Hillel for the same reason we reject Neo-Nazis and Klan Members: They are completely beyond the pale (of settlement). Moreover, we should not give platforms and respectability to outright liars. No need to host debate with propagandists and liars. We will debate them, but not at Hillel.

    from the article: In boycotting the boycotters, Hillel is shooting itself in the foot
