Syracuse University Professor Miriam Elman has been covering the anti-Israel movement for Legal Insurrection since her first Guest Post on November 9, 2014. Since then, Miriam has published over 150 posts.

Wait, wut, we’re coming up on Miriam’s 5th Anniversary at LI next November?

Miriam - Experts - Nature - Groups - Incitement

Miriam has established herself as one of the leading experts on the pathological nature of anti-Israel and pro-boycott groups, as well as Palestinian incitement and campus antisemitism.

By way of example, Miriam’s coverage of the disgusting blood-libelous Deadly Exchange campaign by Jewish Voice for Peace and other groups has been instrumental in the push back that is developing.

Work - Legal - Insurrection - Part - Miriam

AEN also opposes antisemitism where it appears on campus.”

Miriam was just appointed Executive Director of AEN. Here is the press release:
