Tribal Update on academic courage in Europe

The Tribal Update from February 28 focused on two issues. First, that week the Israeli media continued its active agitation regarding the commencement of a Palestinian terror war. We present the rationale for their approach.

Second the last week of February saw George Galloway walk off the stage at Oxford University in the middle of a debate about Israel because he discovered that his debating opponent was an Israeli. The same week, Israel’s Deputy Ambassador in Britain was denied the right to speak at the University of Essex by anti-Israel protesters supported by the university’s Student Council which rejects Israel’s right to exist.
In this context, we present a British academic demonstrating what true academic courage consists of today.
