Having your cake, eating it, and showing it at Olympia CakeEx

That is what the all together odious individuals at the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) (and no, I am *not* linking to them, not now, not ever) seek, judging from a whiney press release I found at Labourstart.org, starting with this absolute jaw dropper of a headline:

"Upholding Debate as a Necessary Component of Academic Freedom".

The average sentient human being might think that the scales had dropped from PACBI's eyes, but no, not a bit of it, rather they are all a-fluster because "No sooner had the [UK’s University and College Union] motion been passed than dozens of American and Canadian university presidents and rectors rushed to condemn the Union". (The scoundrels at UCU passed resolutions that accorded with PACBI's agenda in May). And note the excellent use of 'mostly' in the subsidiary clause to the preceding quote: "basing their attacks on mostly false or inaccurate data".

Meanwhile, let it be noted that before the 'evil Zionist oppressors' re-took Judea Samaria, there were no universities in that part of the world. "Birzeit University is the first institution of higher education to be established in 'Palestine'...the College announced in 1972 its plans for the development of a four-year program leading to a Bachelor degree in Arts and Sciences...With the addition of the fourth year, the name of the College was changed officially to "Birzeit University".

Might we have a new candidate for chutzpah defined, superseding the joke about the child who killed his parents and pleaded for clemency because he was an orphan?
