Danish cartoons, YIISA, Yale, antisemitism,  : Dry Bones cartoon.
I just returned to Israel in time for the Shavuot holiday, then slipped and slept through a sleepy Shabbat, and, Jet-Lagged, on Sunday nite, I sat down to do my first cartoon. I'd been in the States to explain my YIISA (Yale Initiative for the Interdisciplinary Study of Antisemitism) "Secret Codes" findings.

The first news item that demanded my attention was the news that Yale was pulling the rug out from under YIISA. Hmmmm?

* * *
When Yale censored the book about the Danish cartoons. I "defended" them because they'd shown bravery and honesty in admitting that they were afraid to stand up to the thugs.

I wish that there was more in their current statement that would allow me to find a way to similarly "defend" Yale in this matter.

But I can't find any so far.
