Dr. Avery Meiksin, Reader, School of Physics

In a message dated 5/5/2005 7:12:15 A.M. Eastern Standard Time, Dr. Avery Meiksin writes:

Dear Sir or Madam:

In light of the recent AUT call for a boycott of two Israeli
universities, I would like to request affiliate appointments
at Bar-Ilan and Haifa Universities. We are doing what we can
to combat this growing bigotry in the UK and affront to
academic freedom. In due course, however, we expect calls for
boycotts of Hebrew University and Tel Aviv University will
arise, particularly after the pending fusion of AUT with
NATFHE, which has been even more virulently anti-Israel in
the past. If possible, I am therefore also requesting
affiliate appointments at Hebrew University and Tel Aviv
University. Attached please find a copy of my CV (pdf format).

Thank you kindly,

Dr Avery Meiksin
Reader, School of Physics
University of Edinburgh
