In a deft way -- by honoring an Israeli Professor who fought the British University boycott of Israeli academics -- the Queen of England has embarrassed those anti-semitic forces who fought for the boycott.

With so many British universities loving their royal perogatives... this threatens their GONGS upon retirement or royal preferment. She is basically saying "engage in the academic anti-semitic cabal, and you can forget about your knighthood or OBE, or appointments to any royal academy or commission. To an American it looks like code. To those gutless bastards it is a clear THREAT
