It's an article of faith among anti-Israel academics that their views are marginalized on campus, when, in fact, the opposite is true. Speaking to the Algemeiner, Alexandra Marcus, founder of the Columbia University chapter of Students Supporting Israel, confirms as much. She points to the example of Connecticut College professor Andrew Pessin, who remains on leave following a campaign of vilification perpetrated by faculty, administration, and student groups alike:
The professors who support us have said they can't come out publicly on our side, because they're afraid it would jeopardize their careers. And they're right. Look what happened to [Connecticut philosophy professor] Andrew Pessin. And to tell you the truth, I am also petrified that my pro-Israel activism could ruin my career.
