The Danger of Fulbright Scholars

Oh, for fuck's sake:
Seven Palestinian scholars may lose their prized Fulbright scholarships to attend American universities because Israel won't let them out of the Gaza Strip.
And apparently, this new "restrict scholars" policy is fairly new.
Before the restrictions were imposed in January of this year, between 1,000 and 2,000 Gaza students traveled to study abroad every year, according to Gisha, a group that advocates freedom of movement for Palestinians.
This should be an international embarrassment. It actually seems like one of those stories where international media/blog/etc pressure and humiliation could actually have an effect.

What's Dunkin' Malkin up to?
