Academic Cowardice: Syracuse University

Hat tip Algemeiner

It is not just university administrators who are guilty of cowardice in the face of the Palestinian campus onslaught to demonize the Jewish state of Israel. In recent days we have been reading about a case of cowardice at Syracuse University, where an appearance of an Israeli film maker was canceled because a professor was afraid of the reaction of pro-Palestinian students and BDS supporters among among her faculty peers.

Here is more on the disgusting case of Syracuse University and Professor Gail Hamner, who was afraid of what her pro-BDS fellow faculty would think of her.

There are two kinds of courage in life. There is physical courage, and there is moral courage. Professor Hamner may be a skydiver and volunteer fire fighter in her off hours for all I know, but she clearly lacks moral courage.
