Haifa University Threatens to Sue British Teachers on Boycott

Haifa University has threatened to sue the British university teachers' union which recently voted to boycott the Haifa and Bar-Ilan universities. The teachers' union is to meet soon to reconsider its decision.Haifa University said that the boycott, which charges the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Ben-Gurion University of Ramat Gan for supporting Israel's presence in Judea, Samaria and Gaza (Yesha), was published on a web site and defamed them. Haifa has been cited for alleged mistreatment of pro-Arab lecturer Ilan Pappe. Different Jewish academic bodies in the United States have sharply criticized the British boycott
