U.S. University Heads Oppose Academic Boycott of Israel – Shahar Chai (Ynet News)
The chancellors of leading U.S. 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.

Protect Israel from Its Enemies – Stanley G. Tate (Miami Herald)
It seems that some people don’t like successful Jews, so a new movement has arisen to destroy the Jewish state and undermine the U.S. economy.
They seek to boycott, divest and sanction (BDS) the Jewish state into submission by selling a pack of lies to a generation of uneducated youth.
That’s why I joined forces with Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN), a Christian Zionist organization that recently began a nationwide campaign to facilitate grassroots resolutions against the anti-Semitic BDS movement.
After PJTN successfully spearheaded the first anti-BDS resolution in Tennessee, legislators in Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama and Florida followed suit.
Similar grassroots anti-BDS resolution campaigns are now underway in another 40 states, as well as in 10 other countries.
Make no mistake – BDS isn’t just about Israel, it is the new form of politically correct anti-Semitism that has led to intimidation and attacks against Jewish students nationwide.
