Academics Across the World Sign Petition Condemning BDS for Double Standards, Anti-Israel Bigotry | Algemeiner.com
More than 1,000 academics from all over the world signed a petition condemning all forms of boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel.
“Boycott is always wrong, I think. People must talk to each other, not shun the other for any reason,” signatory Harvard Professor Boris Berman told The Algemeiner on Thursday. “In case of a boycott of Israel, the country that struggles every day for its existence and still manages to live as close to a normal life and actually manages to flourish, I think that boycott is not only wrong, but unconscionable and despicable.”
