Yes, questions can be asked regarding the logic of boycotting academics and clowns on their way to Gaza. But why blur the real issue? You will not ask a person who is well to see the doctor - But you will advise a sick person to do so. It is not an issue of whether doctors are a good or a bad thing but it depends on the circumstances. It is the same with boycotts; sometimes they are legitimate and sometimes not. In your eyes boycotts of Israel are as legitimate as boycotts of Hamas. But in the eyes of others, myself included, there is a huge moral difference between these two parties (and since I am responding in this particular news source, I feel the need to add; in favor of Israel). Why simplify things so they no longer describe reality? Propaganda like this may win some votes in the short run, but in the long run, reality will catch up.
