I will not forgive you for generalizing because you are doing so wrongly and dangerously.
You are saying that Jews in academia stifle viewpoints critical of Israel and, implicitly, that they do so because they are Jewish. If you weren't saying that you considered it a *good* thing, your assertion would fit well in an anti-semitic rant.
It is, in any case, an offensive generalization.
