BRIT PROFS SLAP ISRAEL
By Andy Soltis
May 30, 2006 -- Britain's largest college teachers union yesterday voted to boycott Israeli academics because of what it called "apartheid" policies toward the Palestinians.
The British government quickly expressed its regret over the decision by the National Association of Teachers in Further and Higher Education.
The association yesterday called on its members to consider having no contact with Israeli academics who a did not "disassociate themselves" from their government's Palestinian policies.
"It is frightening to consider that the education of students in [Britain] is, to some extent . . . in the hands of those who actually believe that the only country . . . whose academics . . . warrant a boycott is democratic Israel," said American Jewish Committee Executive Director David Harris.
