British Boycott of Israeli Universities Revoked

The Association of University Teachers in England has voted today to revoke its previous decision to boycott 2 Israeli universities, Bar-Ilan and Haifa. The association released a statement: "UK higher education has a long and proud tradition of defending academic freedom. The struggle to maintain academic freedom whenever it is under threat is one that AUT will always support and this principle will continue to guide our work."

As I wrote a few days ago, the boycott was misdirected and misguided and I am glad that this large association of United Kingdom professors has voted to revoke it.
