Fair and Balanced

A few years ago, Jimmy Carter was invited to Brandeis to discuss his new book that criticized Israel. Jehuda and his administration not only tried to sabotage his coming, not only forced him to “debate” Alan Dershowitz (in the interests of “balance”), but Jehuda pointedly refused to welcome a distinguished former President.

A little more than a week ago, Israeli Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Intelligence and Atomic Energy Dan Meridor was welcomed with open arms. Jehuda described the “presentation as a “high level scholarly discussion” concerning the Middle East, and said Brandeis in particular is a place that “welcomes and promotes that kind of discussion.”
