I have to admit, I saw this come across my newsfeed the other day and then on social media but I brushed past it initially because I assumed it was probably just satire. Or something. It wasn’t. Apparently there will be a summer course on Miley Cyrus at Skidmore College, titled “The Sociology…

So said an Israeli-American young woman in the video below. There were many great speakers on March 25, 2014, in opposition to the University of Michigan anti-Israel divestment resolution, but hers stood out to me. The resolution ultimately was defeated 25-9. Bobby Dishell also gave a good speech, which was typical of the approach…

Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY, has been in the headlines this year because of anti-Israel agitation related to Hillel.  But that’s only part of the story, and the only part to receive mainstream media attention.
