The Uses of Irony

In Israel — a country with a powerful and growing ultra-orthodox population whose anti-Zionism prompts their refusal to educate their children in the country’s national curriculum, even though Israel entirely subsidizes their education — a university president goes after faculty who assign some materials critical of Zionism in their sociology classrooms.

Israel should pay less attention to intellectual diversity in its higher education sector, and more attention to the vast number of anti-Zionists it’s cultivating in the lower grades.
