Lengthy examination and fisking of the New York Times at Augean Stables: Jewish Hypercritics of Israel Criticized: How Dare You?
The Times reports on the AJC's report, â€˜Progressiveâ€™ Jewish Thought and the New Anti-Semitism [PDF]
Related, as I've pointed out before, in spite of complaints that people are trying "muzzle" him, Tony Judt's appointment calendar continues to jet along. Received this email:
Tony Judt will be speaking at BC next Tuesday night (2/6) as part of the Lowell Humanities series (7:30, Devlin 101). His formal title is "Disturbing the Peace: Intellectuals and Universities in an Illiberal Age" -- and it is expected that this will be a call for intellectuals to "disturb the peace" in the face of the behavior of Israel and its supporters.
If you know people who would want to go to the talk and be prepared to ask questions, I welcome it. Be forewarned: I have heard that he is a very polished speaker and used to responding to pro-Israel critics
...This event is free and open to the public.
