Canadian profs demand end to Israeli Apartheid Week

And put American professors to shame. The Jerusalem Post on efforts to delouse the University of Toronto:
During Israel Apartheid Week, which took place on the University of Toronto campus in February, the student body was presented with a flurry of information by anti-Israel activists, linking Israel's policies toward Palestinians with South Africa's former policy of segregation. Now, a group professors at the university wants to make sure it doesn't happen again.

The 125 faculty members signed a full-page ad that ran in Canada's National Post last week, calling on the university to "oppose the hosting of Israel Apartheid Week" and "stop this hateful and divisive event from returning to our university in future years."
Israeli Apartheid Week speaker Ward Churchill is mentioned.

Update: Divisive. I hate that word.
