1. Thank you Dr. Gerstenfeld
Shirley ,   Modiin, Israel   (09.14.11)
Thank you for your tireless efforts to expose the anti-Semites of the world. Even though I know that you take a lot of flack from some of these talkbackers, I believe that you only have good intentions and truly want to help Jewish people all over the world.
2. That same Israel Law Center helped undermine Gaza flotilla
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (09.14.11)
I'm happy to support the Center in their courageous work.
3. The Press are Pagans
Intercessor ,   UK   (09.14.11)
Please, they cannot even SPELL at the Guardian and they dont know what is going on, they do not understand History. The original socialists were a lot more community minded against wealthy oppressors. None of the current media commentators understand Israel, but British support is their. Some of our so called left wing academics are uninvited muslims, not sure how they got under the wire really. Apologies. Am Chai Ysrael Adonai Echad
4. Information on our own fifth colomn :Anti-Israel Profs
tanya ,   tel aviv israel   (09.14.11)
Named Shamed.
5. fighting anti-Semitism on campuses
Queen Mary ,   Scotland   (09.14.11)
Good start, long way to go...
6. To N 1, Shirley
Luiz F Haddad ,   Niteroi, Brazil   (09.14.11)
Dear Shirley, Israel will never be isolated. All decent and conscious people, like this Christian talkbacker, do admire and endorse her struggle to exist and to live peacefully. Salutes.
7. he conveniently forgets
sweeter than honey ,   far away   (09.14.11)
that many of the anti-israeli campaigners are jewish. either of home nationality of israeli. in britain we have ilan pepe, or whatever, aided and abetted by jewish academics and that circle. to say that it is anti-semitic is quite disingenuous and causes problems for many jews. perhaps israelis want this to justify their existence to diaspora jewry. jews would not be in such high status positions in the universities, and that is high status in uk, if there was anti-semitism. the writer does not apply any class analysis to this phenomena at all. another one of his repeated prejudices and ignorances. thereby you will find that in uk a great many jewish israeli bashers are high class, academics and professionals, whereas the jewish working class, even jewish trade unionists (and there sure are some), is somewhat more circumspect.
8. One State, One Solution!
Jeff ,   Texas   (09.14.11)
As the prophet Ezekiel tells us: "I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king over them all; they shall no longer be two nations, nor shall they ever be divided into two kingdoms again." Today I am asking you to pray for Israel. Together, let's ask God for these specific things: - First, pray that the United Nations will fail in their attempts to divide Israel with the creation of a Palestinian state. - Next, pray the promise of God that Israel will never be divided into two kingdoms again. - Pray also that the United States will remain a strong supporter and faithful ally of Israel. - Finally, pray for the peace of Jerusalem, as God's Word instructs us to do.
9. If it weren't for the Israelis at UC Santa Cruz, the spoiled
Global Citizen ,   Israel & USA   (09.15.11)
brats waging a war of ignorance against Israel WOULDN'T HAVE A POT TO P_SS IN. Ungrateful, stoned ignorants have no idea how their bread is buttered, or how fast they will be run into the Pacific Ocean if post-Israel Pal allies have their way with them.
10. Lawfare works both ways
Tuvea ,   Chicago, USA   (09.15.11)
For too many years only the anti-Israel Zealots like former President Carter would try to pervert the rule of law against Israel. Now, it seems, that pro-Israel lawyers have found their voice and will work against the anti-semites who hate Israel. Good on them!
11. To # 1 and 6
Alejandro Ramos ,   Mexico City   (09.15.11)
Amen! The one true God may always bless and protect Israel!
12. Making universities take their responsibilities seriously
joel   (09.15.11)
It would sem that the only way to persuade Universities/ trade unions both sides of the Atlantic to take their responsibilities seriously towards providing jewish students/academics with a violence / oppression free student /working atmosphere, whether in Cal;ifornia, Ontario , St,. Andrews Scotland, London England is to do it through legitimate legal process under race relations/human rights legislation.
13. Obviously there's a direct connection betwen higher
tom ,   tel aviv   (09.15.11)
education and weakening of one's natural common sense and intelligent and coherent outlook towards the surrounding as they really are. One of the basic fallacies/axioms of almost any discipline is the assumption that "nothing really IS": you have to question everything. When applied in math& physics it works wonders, when applied to Human Nature ....we end up with victims being the guilty ones and the criminals getting psychological support.Parents are being sued by teenage children, so on. Academics, even in Israel, become an enemy from within. It IS very infuriating/frustrating. It just shows how important it is for the parents to imprint a un-ereasable sense of right/wrong, something no university "professor" can or will be able to corrupt later on. Me think.
14. #1,6 & 11 - I'm with you too!
These bad people will not win.
15. Academics against Israel
Niss ,   UK   (09.15.11)
Academics ? they like to be on the palastinians band wagon they are anti-Semitic and as for the academics from Israel the self hating israelis are they getting paid all these academics do they really check the truth or they are just fed with information and accept it
16. Israel's Free Trade Agreements
Abraham ,   Santa Barbara, USA   (09.15.11)
Currently, there are 49 nations that are legally bound to free trade agreements with Israel. That list includes all 27 European Union members state, the U. S. A., Canada, Mexico, Turkey, Egypt, and Jordan. India almost certainly will sign a free trade agreement with Israel in the coming years. China has growing ties economic ties to Israel. China imports more military technology from Israel than any other nation. Boycotting Israel as proposed by university Israel rejectionists is like a dog chasing its own tail for amusement. It is a mindless past time that has no consequences in international business or the nation state trade system.
17. The academnic societys support only themselfs RIGHT ???
M.S. ,   mpls america   (09.16.11)
I realize the academic societys only support themselfs never all Jews just those who have the brains intelligence to belong to that half of the Jewish race they are cold heartless people I have never seen a good one 1 NEVER they make Israel accept peace treatys only they profit from a shame the N**is never killed any of them never would kill any of them RIGHT ??? Thank You... M. S.
18. Donate to the Israel Law Center instead of the A.D.L.
Chaim ,   Israel   (09.16.11)
I urge everyone currently donating to the A.E.L. to donate to the Israel Law Center instead. The Israel Law Center is in the forefront of fighting for Israeli and Jewish rights while the A.D.L. praises Obama and slams some of Israel's best friends such as Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, and Glenn Beck. The Israel Law Center was largely responsible for destroying the anti-Israel flotillas and now, it is busy defending the rights of Diaspora Jews to study in peace. There is absolutely no comparison of the worthiness of the two organizations. The Israel Law Center is infinitely more deserving of support.
19. Academics against Israel
Ron ,   The Philippines   (09.16.11)
It is wonderful to see Jews fighting back this way...personally, I have my own method. When I read or hear any anti-Semitism, I simply invite the offender to remove their Polio Vaccine. Invented by a Jew I say, and you certainly don't want THAT coursing through your body, right? The reactions are, as they say, priceless...
