Views and opinions[edit]

On academic boycotts of Israel, Meyerstein stated in the Jerusalem Post that, "I feel that many of the people involved in this boycott have little knowledge of the system here and those that do have knowledge also have the desire to abolish the state of Israel. I have always felt boycotts were a bit like burning books. This happened in Europe 70 years ago and it is part of the reason I live in Israel."[4]
