http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/4472169.stm - what are your feelings on the proposed boycott of israeli students from british universities? do you feel it will acheive any sort of results? after having just watched a debate on the BBC between a bristol based philosophy teacher and the jewish lawyer Mr Dershowitz,basically it ended up turning load of rubbish claiming that the philosophy teacher was being anti semitic in his views and that israel is being perscuted and that Jewish students will now refuse to go to british universities as they see themelves as one with Israel. Dershowitz also claimed anti semitism on the basis britain has not boycotted other nations who act in a similar way, however i feel (as did the philosophy teacher) that this is hardly relervant as something said in the defence of his countries actions. so 1) Do you think anything positive will come of this? 2) Do you feel it is anti semitism or is the word being used as a tired excuse? 3)what do you feel would serve as a better sanction against Israeli actions/wuld they be justified? 4)will Britain failing to show the values it preaches by advcating the boycott?
