about this cartoon:
Title: Halls of Ivy
Published: Jewish Bulletin of Northern Calif. (San Francisco)

About this cartoon: The turmoil in the Mideast has led to an uproar
in the nation's more left-wing universities, where those trying to pick
an "oppressor" and an "oppressed" have decided Israel
is the "bad guy" and therefore the Palestian side is "good."
Some have equated the situation with apartheid-era South Africa and have
called for divestiture of any Israeli investments or contacts. Others
have used the taking of sides to harrass or assault Jewish students, disrupt
Jewish events, vandalize Jewish signs or facilities and other such actions.
Noteworthy: This is a generalized cartoon, but there have been
notably unpleasant incidents at San Francisco State University and at
UC Berkeley, which are in the territory of this newspaper.
