Kudos to the co-editors of Israel Studies 👏👏 for defending the #academicfreedom of its contributors & refusing to suppress critiques of anti-#Zionist discourse & “scholarship”, re: the manipulation of language by virulently anti-#Israel academics.

It’s the height of #hypocrisy that critics of #WordCrimes who tried so hard to get this special issue retracted & relied on false accusations, smears of the editors & authors to do so, are now whining that the volume threats THEIR academic freedom to “engage in debate” 🤣🤣🤣 1/
In fact, as anyone who read the special issue knows, the contributors critiqued the prevailing terms & concepts used/misused today in many academic disciplines—which actually is hindering free and intellectually-rigorous debate on #Israel 🇮🇱. 2/

It’s tough to challenge orthodoxies in scholarly discourses these days. If you do, be prepared to be attacked, to face wild & false accusations of misconduct, publication irregularities, hysterical calls for retraction ☹️ FYI @HdxAcademy @CathyYoung63 @CHSommers @LegInsurrection
@HdxAcademy @CathyYoung63 @CHSommers @LegInsurrection Another disturbing case here of professional opprobrium & threats being issued to kill a journal article (in this case a set of articles) 😩 FYI @liel @marksjo1 #academicfreedom 1/
@HdxAcademy @CathyYoung63 @CHSommers @LegInsurrection @liel @marksjo1 Instead of grounding dissent in arguments & evidence (great!) we get overreactions—a noisy campaign to censor the publications & scrub them from the scholarly record (not OK!). It legitimizes threats as a way to get controversial journal articles revoked ☹️ @insidehighered 2/

1/ Who am I?

I'm a #CVE researcher who studies the process of radicalization, social groups, and movements. In short, I look for ways to prevent people like the #CovingtonBoys from swiping even further right & endorsing white nationalism, ethnic separatism, or dom. terrorism.
2/ On Twitter, I identify as a “#ProudBoys Whisperer,” a tongue in cheek reference to the ethnographic fieldwork I do. This work involves many conversations like the one below.

3/ I also look for ways to help men and women innoculate themselves from falling down the #antifeminist/anti-#SJW /conspiratorial rabbit hole.
