ACADEMIC HYPOCRISY

It's amazing to me how many academics single out who the bad guys are.

In this article (registration required) we hear about a previous history of lack of support of Middle Eastern academics by the British Association for University Teachers (AUT). When the subject was repression and imprisonment of university professors in Egypt and Iran, they were silent.

However, with little debate, they recently boycotted two Israel universities over alleged "restrictions on academic freedom".
