There is a mini-firestorm that has erupted slowly over the appointment of Professor N. Bruce Duthu to be Dean of the Faculty at Dartmouth College.

The American Studies Association (ASA), which is run by anti-Israel activists from academia, was the first (and only) significant-sized American faculty association to adopt the academic boycott of Israel.

A few very small groups also have adopted the boycott, but attempts to reach larger organizations, such as the Modern Language Association, American...

A war has been declared on Israel on campus by faculty and students supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

The rallying cry is to blacklist those acting on behalf of Israeli academic institutions or participating in “normalization” events, such as musical and cultural events.

On the faculty academic front, we have seen...

The Turkish purge of academia, which has been ongoing long before the recent failed coup, has accelerated since the coup attempt.

Over 1500 university Deans were dismissed, travel for faculty restricted, and faculty abroad ordered home.

On Saturday, July 23, 2016, President Erdogan expanded the purge, as we reported earlier.

It was one of the most notorious statements of the academic boycott movement against Israel.

Shortly after the American Studies Association adopted the academic boycott of Israel in December 2013, and a firestorm of condemnation by University Presidents and associations erupted, then ASA President Curtis Marez justified singling out Israel because “one...

On November 10, 1975, the United Nations General Assembly passed the infamous “Zionism Is Racism” Resolution 3379.

The Resolution was revoked in 1991, but the theme remains the same among those who want to destroy Israel.
