Progressive Leftist Bloggers Speak

Progressive bloggers Stuart of New Appeal to Reason and Ragout bring up a very interesting point from the campaign to “protect” Joseph Massad–those same people who are signing a petition to defend his academic freedom have not spoken out against Mona Baker, who fired Israeli students because they were Israeli, or the academic boycott of Israel, whose sole purpose is to, well, silence Israeli academic voices. Why are some people free to voice their views according to Juan Cole while others are not afforded that freedom?
If that is not a politicized, hypocritical agenda, I do not know what is. Oh–and Juan Cole may be president of the Middle East Studies Association one day soon.
