New directions for Israeli academics

At YNet, Dr. Ido Hevroni, who researches literature of the Talmudic period and is a fellow at Jerusalem's Shalem Center has some ideas for coping with the British academic boycott:
First, I would like to use this platform to send my sincere condolences to mourning Israeli academicians. But no need to worry, my friends - after all, the weather in England is not the best, and they are rather tightfisted when it comes to scholarships. I'm sure you'll do just fine without them.

Secondly, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate some overjoyed far-left Israeli academicians, headed by Professor Moshe Zimmerman, Dr. Ilan Pappe, and their colleagues: Congratulations, dear colleagues, you succeeded big time.

You managed to make the world hate us, you managed to completely twist the truth regarding our difficult battle with Palestinian murderers, and you managed to find a scapegoat for a world that sees fit to ignore the genocide in Darfur, the cutting off of hands in Saudi Arabia, and executions in the Palestinian Authority. Perhaps now you will even get a tempting offer from a leading Islamic college. When we have the opportunity, I'll be glad to meet with you for a talk regarding freedom of speech, its boundaries, and manner of enforcing it.

Thirdly, personally I'm not moved by the boycott call. I do not mean to underestimate the value or achievements of British academia, but I don't care about it. When those entrusted with freedom of thought and human research fail to grasp how distorted their ideas are as a result of a mental illness, known as anti-Semitism, there is nothing left to do but feel sorry for them.


And as to the subjects of the boycott, Israeli academicians: I hope that just like the ancient embargo on selling arms to Israel constituted a catalyst for developing unique Israeli inventions, this "intellectual embargo" would stimulate Israeli academia to turn to more independent intellectual avenues that are less about currying favor with Western academic fashions.
