The mean-spirited, anti-Semitic resolution of the British Association of University Teachers (AUT) must be fought by all available and possible means, because if it is not, such hateful action may spread to other universities and institutions. Immediately following this article is information about how you can protest this outrageous action. I urge you to take just 30 seconds to make your voice heard on this important issue.
Dear Friend of Israel,
This is not the time to be silent.
Please write to the British Association of University Teachers (AUT) and tell them to REVERSE THEIR DECISION, made Friday April 22, 2005 to boycott Haifa and Bar Ilan Universities .
Consider a writing and sending a variation on this simple message:
SUBJECT: Reverse boycott of Israeli universities
I am writing to express my outrage at the AUT’s recent decision to boycott Israeli universities. Since you have not chosen to condemn any other state in this troubled world than Israel , your actions can only be interpreted as anti-Semitic. Since Israel represents the only democracy in the Middle East and since its universities supply so much advanced research to the rest of the world, your resolution must be seen as mean-spirited and counterproductive. I encourage your organization to rescind its boycott immediately.
Here are the suggested AUT people to write to:
In addition, we urge you to send a copy of your letter to the British press—suggested addresses follow:
