U.S. University Heads Oppose Academic Boycott Of Israel

Ynetnews reports:  The chancellors of leading US universities, including MIT, the University of Chicago, and all ten campuses of the University of California, have clarified that they are opposed to any academic boycott, in particular to one against Israel.

Their comments followed an appeal from the Association of University Heads of Israel (VERA), which was intended to prevent the final adoption of the American Anthropological Association’s (AAA) resolution to boycott Israel.

Last November, the AAA approved a resolution to boycott Israeli academic institutions. There were some 1,300 voting members, of which approximately 30 are Israeli.

Currently, the resolution is being voted on by the AAA’s more than 12,000 members (anthropologists from across the globe), and a final decision is to be taken at the end of the month. If the resolution is adopted, this will be the largest academic organization to boycott Israel.
