Academic Freedom - Indivisible?

And somewhat related, highlighting the extreme complexity of the reality in which Israeli security agencies must work, there is this story:

Two Israeli Arabs from Shfaram have been arrested on suspicion of belonging to Islamic Jihad and planning attacks that included assassinating Israeli pilots, scientists and university professors.

...The two suspects are Anis Sappori, 20, who studies communications at Bir Zeit University in Ramallah, and Hussam Khalil, 19, who studies electrical engineering in Jordan.

...Upon beginning his studies at Bir Zeit two years ago, they said, he first developed ties with members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, then with reporters working for Hezbollah's Al-Manar television station, and finally with the three Palestinian Islamic Jihad activists.

Here is a blurb from the Gaurdian.

"Now compare the security Russia brought to the South Ossetia to destruction the US/UK brought to the people of Somalia."
