For academic freedom and against BDS

For academic freedom and against BDS

Mucho Gratzias

I had the pleasure of speaking at Gratz College outside Philadelphia last week.

The topic was, once again, the academic boycott of Israel, followed by a Q&A session.

For those of you near Los Angeles, I’ll be speaking at the invitation of Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors – Los Angeles, co-sponsored by the Horowitz Freedom Center.

You can register and get more details here.

Thank you for having our back.

Personally, though, I think “Academic Freedom”, particularly here in Israel, is a failed experiment and does more harm than good. (This is because it can be enforced by the courts, at least here.)

Or, as I like to say here on a different issue – if the government directly controlled broadcast media (a lot of which it owns and which it collects a TV tax for) at least we would have a different opinion every few years when the government changed.

Good show! Look forward to your LA concert.

Can someone help him out at 1:08:30?
