I am writing this to express my strong support to the letter of February 16, 2006, concerning your decision to postpone the AAUP Conference on Academic Freedom and Boycott. My esteemed Colleagues Professors Avineri, Ben-Artzi, Jon Pike, Jonathan Rynhold, Gerald Steinberg, Michael Yudkin are completely right in all points of their insightful letter. Thank you for taking steps to prevent another anti-Israeli demonstration of academic extremists.
