    The Frankfurt school days are "passe". What we have right now and not only in Israel is a popular rebellion precisely against this global intellectual elites, epistemic communities of scholars who get to be very wealthy with "human rights" grants. It is true, in Europe and America there is a dissasociation between economic liberalism and political liberalism. In Israel Sternhal is right, economic liberalism belongs to the peace camp. Indeed the economic departments, the suckers of neo liberal reform are also in the peace camp that want to return to palestinians the "nice houses" that the Israel proletariat perchuased very cheap in the West Bank. A good reason for the "people" to hate academicians that make a good living and profit by being engaged in those faked processes of publishing crap. Those liberals are defined as the "terminal elites", those that meet in the airports after the last meeting in the World Bank or the last conference of the American Sociological Organization. Good for them....the problem is that also in Europe there is an increasing popular rebellion against academician multiculturalism which is interpreted as appeasment of the Muslims. There is a popular backlash against academic liberalism and it could become a cancer..... However, lets face it...academicians deserve that backlash in their face.
