To whom it may concern,

I have known Dr. Martin Sherman for more than 10 years.

I have been greatly impressed from his analytical capabilities as well as his precise and forceful manner in which he expresses his views.

Despite all costs to himself – personally and professionally – he has never let political correctness’s considerations to influence his research or corrupt his conclusion.

I believe that Dr. Sherman’s endeavor to address the disturbing and damaging phenomenon of anti-Israel bias inside the nation’s academe is of paramount importance.

I strongly endorse his effort to establish an independent policy center inside the existing academic establishment to contend with and counteract this damaging phenomenon and encourage support for his initiative.

 

Sincerely,

Moshe Yaalon

Vice Prime Minister

Minister of Strategic Affairs
