According to the investigation, the Jewish academics justify their stance as part of the struggle for Palestinian rights and ending Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories.
The report stated that a high proportion of the academics were deeply involved in UCU, the University and College Union, which last month sparked an international outcry by voting to facilitate a boycott of Israeli academic institutions.
If there’s one thing worse than those advocating violence, it’s those that advocate non violent civil action.
Characterizing opposition to a boycott as insincere, he added, “What we are asking for is not violent. It is civil action against a military occupation.”
In an online article, Steven Rose wrote, “It really isn’t good enough to attack the messenger as anti-Semitic or a self-hating Jew rather than deal with the message that Israel’s conduct is unacceptable.”
