Words Fail Her?

I have frequently noticed that those articulating an ‘anti-Zionist’ case, and in this instance: for the AUT blacklist are often unwilling to put their arguments, motives and the consequences of their actions under close scrutiny.

Thus it is with Sue Blackwell.

The people at Engage wish to argue through the case and give her a chance to explain her actions and motives, but sadly she has become reticent.

Rather strange for someone who’s main scholarly powers are linguistic!

I would have thought anyone genuinely interested in this topic and motivated by the highest of interests would welcome an opportunity to articulate a carefully argued case, but no Sue Blackwell has retreated.

Having seen such people in the past, I am not entirely surprised.
