Oxford Story picked up by the New York Times and International Herald Tribune

Hot Spit!
A piece by Diana Jean Schemo appears today in both the New York Times and the International Herald Tribune. According to the article, Wilkie "declined to speak to a reporter and university officials said they would not comment until the investigation is concluded later this week."

In a telephone interview from his home in Tel Aviv, Duvshani said he responded to Wilkie that he was "no longer interested in working with him."

"I really don't know if someone with such racist views can change, but I do hope you will reconsider and not judge all 6 million of us Israelis the same way," Duvshani wrote to him.

Kudos to the Times and Tribune. Now where's AP and Reuters on this one?
