Oxford Bigot Big News in the Blogosphere

The American media hasn't been quick to pick up the story of Amit Duvshani, the Israeli rejected for a doctoral positon by Oxford bigot, Prof. Andrew Wilkie. It's shown up in the Drudge Report, the Chicago Sun Times, and on Brit Hume's FOX NEWS. A Google News search nets only 6-7 hits, and most of those are in the UK and Israel.

In the mind-boggling blogosphere, however, it's BIG NEWS. littlegreenfootballs is, of course, a major source, but here (in no particular order) are a few of the hundreds of other blogs which have covered the story. Kol hakavod!

". . . we must be unrelenting in our opposition to this expanding anti-Semitism. Toward that end, I call on the readers here to continue to question the authorities at Oxford, as I imagine the far greater readership at Little Green Footballs will. I urge you all to do it with the utmost in tenacity, but (attractive as it is) without the use of invective, which is the province of the racists we despise."

-->>A comment left at Secular Blasphemy, which I liked:
"In the 1980s, when Menachem Begin was in power and calling all critics of Israeli policy "anti-Semitic" and "Nazis," I rejected such name-calling as a transparent attempt to avoid responsibility for Israel's actions toward Palestinians under their occupation. Today, however, criticism of Israel from the Western left has become so shrill, so one-sided, and so blind toward the actions to which Israel is responding, that I have no choice but to conclude that there really is an element of anti-Israel or even anti-Jewish bigotry that the supposedly anti-racist left refuses to recognize or confront. This example - from the scientific community no less - of an individual being punished for his country's actions, only reinforces my conclusion. Oxford University should be ashamed of itself at all levels." Dave • 7/1/03; 6:10:32 AM
