I am disappointed that David Myers has decided to leave the Center for Jewish History. We could not have had a more eminent and highly qualified Jewish historian at its helm.
There is so much I’d like to say to his detractors. I know they will google my name and come after me full-court press. (They already have me in their crosshairs.) So suffice it to say that they should at least get their facts right (not that they care). The New Israel Fund has never supported BDS. So next time, go after them for building a civil society in Israel, something the majority of Jews both in Israel and the U.S. believe that every democracy requires.
