The co-signing of a statement calling for “truth-seeking and freedom of thought” by a well-known BDS proponent elicited harsh reactions from academics, who said they otherwise wouldhave endorsed the document.

The statement, jointly issued last week by conservative Princeton professor Robert P. George and Harvard’s Cornel West, reads in part: “…all of us should seek respectfully to engage with people who challenge our views. And we should oppose efforts to silence those with whom we disagree — especially on college and university campuses.”
