American Studies Association leaders endorse boycott of Israeli universities
Jerusalem Post ^ | 12/05/2013 08:20 | (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The American Studies Association leadership endorsed a boycott of Israeli universities, but also sought the approval of the body’s 5,000 members. …

“We believe that the ASA’s endorsement of a boycott is warranted given US military and other support for Israel; Israel’s violation of international law and UN resolutions; the documented impact of the Israeli occupation on Palestinian scholars and students; the extent to which Israeli institutions of higher education are a party to state policies that violate human rights; and the support of such a resolution by many members of the ASA,” the council announcement said. …

So who are the ‘American Studies Association leaders”?

I’m an ‘American’ and I endorse Israel.

So there.

This is in effect an attempt to set U. S. Foreign policy. As such it is against the law. Only the approved cabinet member, the President, and Congress are allowed to draw up, set, and execute foreign policy. If the association wants to bring pressure on U. S. officials, I support it even if I don’t agree with it. They simply cannot force the issue like this IMO.

Looks like a progressive organization that tries to rewrite history.

So? Who the heck are THEY? A bunch of preening libbies fancying themselves to be intellectually superior to mere mortals. I wouldn't care what they endorse, they are nothing from nothing. If you asked them about what Palestinians are really like, how they really live, what they really believe, these useful idiots would doubtless simply parrot their libbie talking points about how horribly Israel treats the Pallies.

As I recently posted--http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3096083/posts--compare the lists of what Israel has given the world and what Pallies have given the world. Israel has also frequently provided life-saving surgeries to Pallies they couldn't get back in their own territory. Do you hear much about humanitarian aid like that?

The useful idiots in ASA can go jump into the nearest sewer, where they and their opinions belong.

Oh! Well, if THEY say so, guess we gotta do it! /S

It seems to be a cycle. These organizations get more leftist, so they get more ignored by the general public, so the organization’s leaders get more insecure, so they get even more leftist, so they get even more ignored...

Quackademic scum.

They should be rounded up and air-dropped into Gaza and North Korea.

Chutes optional.
