As a political scientist and a believer in liberal democracy, I am appalled at this transparent persecution of an entire department because of the political views of some of its members.

I worry about the way Israel seems to be slipping into mindless intolerance.
Jews have always practiced and respected open debate, I hate to see it so slighted in Israel.
