To get good insightful answers, how the question is framed matters. I missed an opportunity on Thursday
Six university presidents recently spent a week in Israel visiting institutions and signing agreements.
The trip was funded in part by the Canadian Council for Israel and Jewish Advocacy.
I do not object to the concept of university presidents traveling to Israel on a sponsored trip – these are academics capable of thinking for themselves after all.
I do believe they have a responsibility to balance their trip by visiting the disputed territories to form partnerships there as well.
