The Power of Knowledge

Response to Daily editorial, Mar. 30th, 2011

By Heather Munroe-Blum

As Principal and as an academic, I fully disagree with your editorial of March 28, “McGill should cut ties with Hebrew University.”

Your suggestion that our participation in a program focusing on human rights and diversity could exacerbate the plight of the Palestinian people is without foundation. Your inability to separate geopolitical issues from knowledge-based research projects conducted by respected scholars is evidence of clouded vision.
