Neil W. Schluger, M.D writes:
I am writing to express my outrage at the recent action taken by
AUT to boycott Bar Ilan University and Haifa University in Israel.
This action, based in ignorance and prejudice, is counter to every
notion of academic freedom and open intellectual exchange. Your
organization and, by extension, the entire community of higher
academicians in Great Britain which you apparently claim to represent,
are now marked as groups that represent the very antithesis of honest
scholarship and fair-minded inquiry. In response, I have happily
proudly sought affiliation with Bar Ilan University. You may add
to your boycott list.
