Australian academics call for boycott of Israel

Posted in Miscellaneous by beyondtheborder on March 28, 2009

We scholars, inspired by the wishes of Palestinian civil society, call upon international civil society organizations and people of conscience all over the world to impose broad boycotts and implement divestment initiatives against Israel similar to those applied to South Africa in the apartheid era. We appeal to you to pressure your respective states to impose embargoes and sanctions against Israel. We also invite conscientious Israelis to support this Call, for the sake of justice and genuine peace.”

    Oh good! Yet another nation has a subset of a subset of a minority of academics willing to flush the whole concept of academic freedom (upon which their profession rests) down the toilet for their partisan cause of the week.

    Read http://www.divestthis.com/2009/03/academic-boycott-reaches-these-shorts.html to find out what happened when an equally unreprestative group of US academics gave this same scam a shot.
