We've come to this …

… Sharansky Breasts a Protest Against His Talk at Brown On Jewish Identity - The New York Sun.

But it’s … a sad moment for American higher education, for Israel, and for world Jewry when a campus conversation between an American actor with a Jewish identity and a human rights hero known for surviving nine years in the Soviet gulag is greeted — before it even happens — by an op-ed in the student newspaper summoning a rally “to speak out against this justification of Israeli crimes.” It’s a measure of the movement’s virulence that it targeted not an appearance by an Israeli general or a foreign policy talk but rather a discussion about Jewish identity.
I agree with Instapundit's Glenn Reynolds: "Well, all this talk about “Palestine” is really just a cover for anti-semitism. And a pretty thin one at that."
