A Brief, Unscripted Aside...

A copy of a petition started by David Hirsch of Goldsmith's College, London, opposing this move being put forward by a faction within the Association of University Teachers is available at this site. I know there are at least a couple of full time British university teaching staff who read this site from time to time and I would just urge anyone answering that description to strongly consider putting their name to it, regardless of their stance towards Israel's policies in Gaza and the West Bank. One should not need to be pro-Israeli to oppose what is frankly a thoroughly scurrilous, partial, selective and discriminatory move, of which, in my view, those involved should be utterly ashamed.
