    like Iran, etc.Boycott of isr academics is fully justified, since the majority of isr academics do little to support the rights of Pals, and their institutions are complicit in the occupation. Last year many were happy to teach at the college in Ariel, an illegal West Bank settlement!A 2009 report, "Academic boycott of Israel and the complicity of Israeli academic institutions in occupation of Palestinian territories" did an excellent job of documenting ways in which "Israeli academic institutions have not opted to take a neutral, apolitical position toward the Israeli occupation but to fully support the Israeli security forces and policies toward the Palestinians".One example is the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, a university with an international reputation for research-and strong ties with the Israeli military and arms manufacturers.Technion's scientists have developed a remote-controlled bulldozer used to demolish Palestinian homes, with the university offering "tailored" programmes to the "IDF and Ministry of Defense".Technion also has a close relationship with companies like Elbit Systems-a drone manufacturer targeted for divestment around the world due to its involvement in "violations of international humanitarian law"
