Israel Boycott Battle Heads to Court

A lawsuit against the American Studies Association argues its support for the academic boycott of Israel falls outside the scope of its mission. Plaintiffs accuse a handful of radicals of hijacking the group to advance their own political views.

“This is not just about the American Studies Association. It’s about any association officer or director who is thinking about using their association as a tool to advance their own ideological agenda." said Kenneth L. Marcus, the president of the Louis D Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law, which has joined with two law firms to bring the case against the ASA. I hope the lawsuit is successful. This prejudice towards any other country or religion would not be tolerated. Thanks, David.

Hopefully the lawsuit will be successful and set a precedent for other lawsuits against institutions, mostly universities, which allow students and faculty to behave in contradiction to the code of ethics of the said institution.
