I'm not familiar with the faculty and culture of BGU, so I won't comment on it specifically, but in general if a faculty is overwhelmingly promoting a particular political viewpoint, this is something other than a pure free speech issue. This would mean that opposing views would tend to be stifled and there is a real danger of course content being more ideological than liberal arts. There is also the very real issue of professors having a captive audience of young minds and consciously or unconsciously manipulating their views. The 'tools of academia' don't work if they are distributed by ideologues. Again, I don't know anything specific about BGU but to just write Im Tirtzu off as McCarthyists without examining the situation further, or opening it up to a more public discussion, is short sighted.
