SCHWARZ | Additional Ideas on the Hamas-Israel Battle

I obtained a large number of optimistic responses to my current Cornell Each day Solar piece, however subsequent occasions have evoked additional ideas on the intractable state of affairs in Israel and Gaza.

The response of so many individuals thanking me for “the braveness to talk up,” as if I have been risking my skilled standing or my stature at Cornell and even my private security, for my opinions on the importance of Oct. 7 tells us one thing concerning the present fraught surroundings. It’s as if, with out realizing it, I had turn out to be the proxy or surrogate for a large number of Jewish college students, alums and even Jews past Cornell. I discover this a bit scary as a result of it suggests some Jews and different supporters of Israel’s proper to exist have been cowed into silence not solely about Israel but additionally a number of different points.

Most of the letter writers expressed outrage at President’s Pollack’s first letter and various threatened to withdraw monetary help from Cornell. Her second letter modified the minds of some however removed from all those that wrote me. As Dan Okrent, the primary Public Editor of the New York Occasions, proposed in what’s now often called Okrent’s Regulation, “The Pursuit of Stability Can Result in Imbalance.” That’s, typically the hunt for evenhandedness, when a powerful assertion on the facet of the wronged celebration is required, can itself be a serious mistake when it comes to reality and morality. A number of folks, together with myself, thought the eloquent first paragraph of President Pollack’s third letter recognizing absolutely what had occurred on Oct. 7 was all that was wanted and may have been despatched instantly after the atrocities dedicated by Hamas have been recognized.
