Middle East Conflicts on Campus
Scott Jaschik discussed the disputes on college campuses, especially UC-Irvine, over the Middle East. Yours truly makes a cameo appearance, as does the petition I started to defend John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt from scurrilous charges of bigotry.
I don’t actually think things are as heated on most campuses over these issues as they appear to be at UC Irvine. Universities are full of people who like to discuss issues civilly, and most of the problems that do occur come from outsiders who are trying to score political points.
