Two left-of-center Jewish professors, writing in the Washington Post last month, called for a boycott of Israel. A former Bush administration official then wrote a counter op-ed to refute them. Unfortunately, both sides missed the most important point.Prof. Steven Levitsky of Harvard, and Prof. Glen Weyl of the University of Chicago, wrote in the Post on October 23 that Israel's "occupation of the West Bank and Gaza and the denial of basic rights to Palestinians living there" has become so similar to apartheid that they now support boycotting Israel, are urging their universities to divest from Israel, and want the U.S. to end all aid to Israel.
