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.
