Warning Sign with Clipping Path

British academics and bigotry against Israel

The United Kingdom has many attractions: Wimbledon, strawberries and cream, and political parties that talk to each other. What a pity that it also has far too many self-righteous and holier-than-thou academics whose bigotry is as considerable as their lack of knowledge of Middle East realities.

The physical British fog, so familiar from the Sherlock Holmes stories, may have disappeared, but the mental fog prevails in the minds of some faculty members.

    A number of years ago, anti-Israel boycotts at universities fizzled, when charges were brought against those institutions, for “discrimination against people of an ethnic origin” (Jews in this case). Could these anti-Semitic bigots be brought up on charges for this? It seems that there are too few people willing to undertake lawsuits.

    “…political parties that talk to each other”

    Here in the colonies they’ve segregated into tops and bottoms.
    No talking required – I’ve heard they have a tap language.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Cancel ever single intellectual property, licensing, patent and research agreement between Israel and every single UK academic institution. Ban 100% of their staff from Israel for life.
