No surprise that those in academia tend to oppose Israel
Reader comment on: The Academic War on Israel

"A generation of students is growing up learning to tolerate -- and consider normal -- bias, falsehood and the runaway politicization of teachers and student thugs permitting only one-sided arguments."
This is the standard Left wing approach to 'debate', to shout down, threaten, or even physically attack, anyone who disagrees with them. And many in academia now are virulently Left wing.
The Left is both malevolent and authoritarian and seeks to establish a socialist police state, modeled on Castro's Cuba and Chavez's Venezuela, both here in America and around the world.
In order to do that, the left tries desperately to destroy freedom and individual rights wherever they are to be found.
Israel is the one country in the Middle East in which there is respect for freedom and individual rights. Therefore the Left is dedicated to destroying Israel. To do that, the Left fervently supports vicious murdering tyrants such as the PA, Hamas, etc.
As long as academia is in the grip of the Left, there will be antipathy toward Israel on college campuses everywhere.
