    Dear Leon Rosgarten-- Many thank for expressing your outrage over the way the Zionist lobbyists threatened to bring lawsuits against the UAT and to cut its American contract if it didn`t cancel the academic boycott. Indeed, this is shameful. Whatever happened to admitting one`s faults and promising to make amends? Surely, there is greater wisdom in the belief that man is one and no one has a leading lead. Or indeed, that it is better to share with your neighbors than to keep from them. That`s how most of the world gets along. Still, I hope you can agree the treatment you received is a far cry from the way the Palestinian People are treated daily in the territories by Israeli soldiers who feel they are saving Israel by subjugating their neighbors and by denying them their daily freedoms. The restriction on the right of movement involves many other freedoms: the right to work and make a daily living; the right to proper medical treatment; the right to an education; the right to maintain family life; the right to own land without fear of confiscation; the right to be free from arbitrary arrests/detention and persecution; and last but not least the right to self determination. Then the Israeli academics have the audacity to talk about "academic freedom" when they fail to even recognize the basic freedoms of the Palestinian people to earn a livelihood and to get an education. What hypocrisy! But like you said "anyone who understands dialectic materialism and historic determinism can see that the demise of oppression is the ME is unavoidable. Indeed, you are so right. My thanks again, keep us posted. Dutch
