Bad PR for Penn's BDS Conference

It seems there are fissures within the ranks of those organizing this week's National Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) conference at the University of Pennsylvania due to the inclusion--and later, withdrawal--of a video that inconveniently betrays the radicalism behind the BDS movement. Even outspoken anti-Israel Middle East studies professors such as Penn's Ian Lustick and Columbia University's Rashid Khalidi are keeping their distance. As Asaf Romirowsky, adjunct scholar at the Middle East Forum and acting executive director of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East, aptly put it, "This is not a scholarly debate."
