Academic Freedom or Academic Farce?

by Mike Fegelman

Today marks the start of York University’s conference on peace in the Middle-East entitled “Israel/Palestine: Mapping Models of Statehood and Paths to Peace“. Conference organizers state that the purpose of the event is to “explore which state models offer promising paths to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, respecting the rights to self-determination of both Israelis/Jews and Palestinians.” Critics of the event have said that the conference is nothing more than a “blatant exercise in anti-Zionist propaganda” masquerading as legitimate academic discourse. What do you think?
