“It is dispiriting to find voices who otherwise support the freedom of expression speaking out to deny free expression to one country and one group of people. Despite constant existential pressure there is more freedom of expression in Israel than the majority of countries in the U.N. and more self-criticism than almost any other society on earth.”

From “Boycotting Israeli Authors Is an Affront to Free Speech” by Rabbi David Wolpe (TIME)
