That doesn't mean that they are overwhelmingly pro-Israel. It means they are against a singling out of a tiny embattled country, while Sudan, China, Saudi Arabia, Zimbabwe, the PLO, Jordan, Egypt, Syria, to name a few have far worse records of human rights, general freedoms, and democracy or lack thereof.

They think singling out Israel is hateful... and while they likely feel there are grievances on the Palestinian side that are legit they feel that this campaign is nothing but a hate driven obssession to blight a tiny country, which it ... is!

So how many of those Professors who signed up against the Divestment Campaign were for Camp David and Taba?

So what does it take to be considered "Pro Israel"?

If you are against Suicide Bombings, the liquidation of Israel's national rights, termination of Jews in the Middle East, teaching Jihad and filthy hate to little kids.... do these feelings make you 'Pro Israel'?

Or how about if you feel the Protocols of Zion and Hitler's Mein Kampf are hate filled filth that are the backbone of genocide and lies leading to one. Does that make you "Pro Israel" as well today in PC Berkeley?

Well apparently from the ... news it does! What's your call on it?
