It seems strange that Israel is the only (or one of the only) subjects of academic boycott, when other 
countries operate in flagrant violation of international law and treat their citizens and neighbours with 
much greater violence and repression. Ok, you say, well two wrongs don't make a right, but why the 
exceptional focus on Israel. 

Given antisemitisms long and stubborn hold on the world it doesn't seem quite so absurd to say that it 
might be a factor in the special attention Israel, the Jewish state, receives.
