With the kind of shenanigans Akiva discusses here, state support of a "university" going up in the heart of palestine, is an invitation to extend the academic boycott of Israeli institutions to well outside the UK. It would of course help is more of those excellent israeli academics - so eager to denounce international boycotts - prepared a petition of their own opposing university status granted to stolen property. Then again - maybe the opposition within Israel to such tactics is not all that fierce. After all, most israelis want "peace'. As long as they don't have to trouble themselves over silly things like creeping annexations and money laundering scheme (discussed in the article) to draw a thin veneer of legal justification overwhat most of the world would consider theft. It's not that all Israelis approve of these tactics. It's that too few are willing to do much to show their opposition. Who said that "for evil to triumph, all that's needed is for good people to do nothing"?
