ADL THREATENS CRITICS OF ISRAEL APARTHEID
GUARDIAN - The Anti-Defamation League [has] urged American
universities and grant-giving bodies to "cut funding, support and
contact with any academic who advocates a boycott of Israel." The
organisation's national director, Abraham Foxman, said in a statement:
"Those who seek to damage and discredit their Israeli colleagues with
a blacklist must know that there is a price to pay.". . .
Many groups, including the Federation of Unions of Palestinian
University Professors and Employees, have supported the motion. Its
director general, Muhammad Abuzeid, said today: "We expected that such
intimidation would take place after the boycott vote. After weeks of
intimidation and attempts to affect their democratic rights to make
whatever decisions they like the British academics knew what they were
getting into when they voted for this boycott. They have already gone
beyond the threshold in which harassment would change their minds.". . .
"If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time.
But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine,
then let us work together."
