The swollen envy of pygmy minds

This news was brought to our attention by none other the vigilant BBA:

The periodical of Tel Aviv University’s law faculty, Theoretical Inquiries in Law, has been ranked first among all law periodicals published outside the US by Washington and Lee University. The university considers more than 200 periodicals published in England, Canada, Australia, the European Union and other countries.

Why is this important?

As BBA says:

... it's satisfying to note that the review process considered over 200 periodicals published outside the US, including a good number submitted from Boycotting Britannia, and that this relatively young Israeli journal should lead the pack.

Boycott that, you noodles!

I share her/his feeling about the "envy and resentment" motivation. It was Mark Twain who defined antisemitism as: "the swollen envy of pygmy minds – meanness, injustice"
