SA Universities’ hostility to Israeli apartheid
May 4 th, 2015
Councils from five universities in SA said to join the academic boycott of “Israeli apartheid”, according Haaretz daily. Students have planned to exert pressure on their institutions to implement the boycott. Five universities have rejected claims of anti-Semitism. Haaretz said in a statement that criticism of Israel’s colonial policies of occupation and apartheid cannot, and should not, be equated with anti-Semitism. The student councils explained that anyone violating BDS’ call and accomplices of the Israeli occupation will be excluded from investment funds and contract services. This year, the University of Johannesburg has ended its partnership with Ben Gurion University in Israel.
