"Let me be completely clear about my personal and individual point of view: 

"I condemn Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel, and the taking of hostages, whose safe and swift return I fervently wish for.  I reject antisemitism; it is repugnant and indefensible.

"I have taught at universities for over a decade and a half.  I welcome students bringing a range of views into the classroom; it's vital to the teaching and learning process.  I have always believed my role in the classroom to be one of helping students develop their thinking skills, not telling them what to think."
