Palestinian campuses are not only hotbeds of anti-Israel activity but are also controlled by active terrorist groups, such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad, which oppose peace with Israel.
Palestinian extremism is far more damaging to open expression of opinions on Palestinian campuses than Israel ever has been. To call for a boycott of Israeli academics, who are overwhelmingly in favour of peace, is stupid.
