Making Tzipi Livni Look Good

I can't say I am disappointed in Shaul Mofaz of Kadima since I did not have high expectations of him in the first place.

But his intemperate piece in yesterday's Maariv and his remarks on Israel Radio today about the Im Tirtzu movement are nevertheless notable.

Mofaz thinks it is "thuggish" to call attention to a political culture at Ben-Gurion & other universities which creates a safe haven for Israelis enablers of the boycott of Israel movement.

Yet speaking out of both sides of his mouth he also said that anti-Zionist lecturers should not be employed. Huh?

I have nothing against employing anti-Zionists. But when you reach a tipping point and the anti-Zionists set the tone for an entire department and even a campus, something is terribly wrong.
