    Please re-read this article. All Nusseibeh is saying is that Israeli academics, so many of whom are virulently critical of anything Israel does to protect itself, are simply the LAST segment in ISRAELI society who should be boycotted. In fact, by putting academics at the end of the list he is implicitly supporting the boycott of other segments of Israel, and is even saying it is okay to boycott the Israeli academics, just hit them last. Puh-lease, why Nusseibeh should receive praise for this only shows how everyone grovels when an Arab Palestinian says something that sounds nice. Just because other Arab Palestinian leadership hate Nusseibeh because he is too "soft" on Israel does not mean we should be content with condoning boycotts of Israel in any form.
