Some good points, but wouldn't disqualifying Feldman based on opposition to a nonexistent Israeli program effectively blackball all BDS supporters from any university leadership position? This logic could be flipped to attack pro-Israeli academics, e.g., "we don't yet have a program with a Palestinian university, but if we did, this Likudnik would oppose it; therefore, this candidate is unfit based on something they haven't yet done." We may want to hold off on banning intellectuals based on these kinds of ideologies.
