Manchester University Embraces BDS

It’s a shame Manchester Uni decided to adopt a policy of Boycott Divestment and Sanctions. I guess now they’ll be off the internet and their students will stop using their Apple Macs and mobiles.

Or they’ll just revel in the style over substance arguments that are so fashionable on campus and do nothing except riot whenever an Israeli turns up on their campus ala UCL and KCL.

The Union of Jewish Students says this about the vote;

On the night, Jewish students who argued against the motion were made to feel as if their concerns about their potential marginalisation were not being heard. Despite offering alternatives that included creating a discussion forum to engage with the Israeli-Palestinian debate, many on the Senate believed that a targeted BDS tactic was more constructive than any form of engagement.
