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The Resolution was revoked in 1991, but the theme remains the same among those who want to destroy Israel.

You can attend just about any Boycott Divestment and Sanctions rally, “Jewish Voice for Peace” protest, “Campaign...

This is really rich.

The anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement is extremely aggressive on campus, something we have documented hundreds of times.

That aggressiveness is carried out on the streets and campus areas by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), whose aggressive actions are meant to and do intimidate other students.

The academic boycott of Israel has generated a lot of attention and noise in the past few weeks, even though it has not generated much actual boycotting.

No university in the U.S. is considering a boycott, as far as I know, and in many ways ties are expanding. The American Studies Association...

At the American Historical Association annual meeting in New York City, an anti-Israel group called Historians Against the War sought to present two anti-Israel resolutions (here and here).

Neither resolution called for a boycott of Israel, because they knew that would not pass (the AHA apparently is not controlled by anti-Israel radical...

Ever since I started covering the anti-Israel academic boycott of the American Studies Association in December 2013, I have interacted with some of its members who are reasonable people concerned about the direction the ASA has taken.  But those voices have been drowned out by a shrill and vocal minority.

In December 2013, the American Studies Association passed an academic boycott of Israel, the first group of substantial size to do so. That led to a massive outpouring of outrage and rejection by over 250 university presidents and numerous university associations, not to mention the American Association of University Professors.
