American Historical Association rejects anti-Israel resolutions vote

Anti-Israel resolutions presented at the annual meeting of the American Historical Association were not voted on after members rejected a vote to suspend the group’s bylaws.

The resolutions were submitted to the American Historical Association, or AHA, by the independent group Historians Against the War. However, business meeting agenda items were supposed to be submitted by November 1 to allow members time to plan to attend the annual meeting. The anti-Israel resolutions were submitted on December 22, and did not appear on the business meeting agenda.

The three-day annual meeting opened on January 2 in New York City.

In a vote Sunday night, members of the AHA declined by a vote of 144 to 54 to suspend the bylaw on when the resolutions could be submitted, in order to allow the Historians Against the War (HAW) to present the resolutions…

    Can we be fairly certain then, that HAW is a distant arm of some Islamist group?

    • Blacksmith

      That or leftist commies.

    • Clausewitz

      Their rightful name would be the HFR. Historians for Revisionism.

  • Minicapt

    Now they need to announce the names of any members of the AHA who are also members of the HaW, and make their memberships probationary.


    • Clausewitz

      Thinking more Null and Void.
