President Eisgruber has done better than some of his Ivy colleagues, but he has been plagued by the same problems as the other presidents. It is not enough to give both sides a hearing positively when genocide is mentioned. Genocide must be countered as un-American, un-Christian, unsupportable, and clearly fascistic, even when it is still verbal only. Verbal genocide is prelude to certain action in genocidal efforts. I don’t doubt academic presidents and other leaders are dumbfounded about how to act. We need to urge them to act courageously and not politically. Be a man, Mr. President, be a man!
