Criticism of Israel has merit [Letter]

I am thankful that Melani McAlister, an associate professor at George Washington University, is brave enough to write about the attempt to stifle the American Studies Association ("Maryland bills would stifle academic freedom," Feb. 12).

Those of us who are opposing Israeli apartheid are being called anti-Semites. Nothing could be farther from the truth. An anti-apartheid stance is based not on nationality but on ethics. Zionists need to learn the golden rule: Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.
