Should they be fired?

Reader comment on item: Fabricating Israeli History: The "New Historians."

Submitted by Joe Ruf (United States), Mar 30, 2015 at 12:40

The new historians are quoted a lot and their version of history or something like it seems to be the prevailing narrative in Israel. Benny Morris is highly respected and his books are taught in many universities including at places like Yeshiva University, Haifa U, U tel aviv. Would you support all these people getting fired or suspending their programs?

If you are correct there is a HUGE problem in American Jewish and Israeli universities let alone the rest of academia.

I and the Campus Watch project I began in 2002 stay away from the issue of employment, tenure, and the like. We stick to the issues.
