We have written so many times about the anti-Israel Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement. The BDS movement is particularly strong on campuses in part because of the support from anti-Israel faculty and outside groups that target campuses: Brown U. divestment committee faculty member signed 2009 letter calling Israel Apartheid state Brown U. faculty supporter…

In part because it’s my home district, but mostly because it is a swing district which leans Republican but includes liberal Tompkins County, making it competitive. It’s not hyperbole to say the…
