The author examines strategies and methods used by both pro-Israel and anti-Israel activists on the campus of Johns Hopkins University in order to analyze the broader situation of debate about Israel on American college campuses. Anti-Israel activism stands on three legs, the author contends: strategic relationships, professors, and the media. The author argues that pro-Israel activists must work on all three of these fronts as well if they are to succeed.
