For the first time, U.S. professors call for academic and cultural boycott of Israel.

By Raphael Ahren

In the wake of Operation Cast Lead, a group of American university professors has for the first time launched a national campaign calling for an academic and cultural boycott of Israel.

While Israeli academics have grown used to such news from Great Britain, where anti-Israel groups several times attempted to establish academic boycotts, the formation of the United States movement marks the first time that a national academic boycott movement has come out of America.

“As educators of conscience, we have been unable to stand by and watch in silence Israel’s indiscriminate assault on the Gaza Strip and its educational institutions,” the U.S. Campaign for the Academic & Cultural Boycott of Israel stated in its inaugural press release last Thursday. Source.

So You Want to Boycott Israel

Let’s Play Pretend

Israel, Israeli Defense Force

ISRAELI GIRLS of the IDF

” Cowardly ” IDF Soldier Saves Palestinian Girl Life

These are the same schmucks that preach academic freedom as an excuse for their “teaching” (and I use the word loosely) their biased, opinionated self-serving agendas. They are a hypocritical group that have embraced people like the “former” terrorist Ayers, you know Obama’s friend.

    Yes, I added the Israeli videos after the one in the original post. It contrasts everything these schmucks are saying. If they want their “Academic Freedom” let them move to Iran, Russia or China. I for one won’t miss them. In short order they will miss us. That is of course unless they continue their biased propaganda instead of “teaching” the “profession” that they are paid for.

    Excellent post. I hadn’t heard that a new call went out from American Academics to boycott Israel. Thanks for bringing that up.
