    This way, the wealthy Marxist-Leninist donors will know which left-wing professors to give their money, and the wealthy right-wing Capitalist donors will know which right-wing professors they can donate to. I see no problem with that. Oh wait, I forgot, there are no wealthy Marxist-Leninist donors!!!! In Israel, as in the US, many academics seem to forget that "academic freedom" and "freedom of inquiry" is really FREEDOM OF INQUIRY WITH SOMEBODY ELSES MONEY!! Maybe the Saudis will step in to fund pro-Palestinian Israeli academics. NOT!! At the end of the day, academic endevours that nobody wants to subsidize is like a painting nobody will buy. Garbage. It is the purest form of academic fraud. Can't explain your value, but want paycheck anyway. Crackpot socialism works this way. Real world does not.
