Encouraging a constructive *tone* of discussion is helpful.

But telling people (on a union email list in which virtually *every* other topic is freely discussed) to “take this argument to private e-mail NOW” — rather defending their contractual free speech rights — only serves (in Bahar’s words) to effectively “silence the Palestinian perspective and erase the Palestinian voice.” As shown by recent events at CUNY, those days are over.

This discussion seems to be settling into the traditional LAS Israel/Palestinian rant.  It seems milder than usual so far, but sooner or later someone is going to complain about a hostile work environment and management will come down on us again.  Could the usual suspects please take this argument to private e-mail NOW, before we get in trouble?
