British Academics see the light

Finally some good news to follow up to my previous post on the subject of the AUT ban of Israeli Universities; the ban has been lifted. It seems that the more level headed academics have prevailed but somehow in this statement on the AUT site they manage to make it look like the original boycott was not a mistake but merely an acceptable policy that has since evolved to a policy of cooperation.

But don't worry, The Palestinian Union of University Teachers and Employees (see the Jerusalem Post article linked above) still seem to be ok with the idea of a boycott. They even go so far as to condemn a Palestinian Professor for speaking out against the original AUT ban.

Thanks to LGF for the update.
