For many years there has been a campaign by the anti-Semitic left to institute a boycott in the academic world against the facility members of Israeli Universities.
They scream APARTHEID as if by using the word over and over it will prove to be true (Israeli is the only nation in the Middle East that grants full, equal citizenship and rights to its minority populations). Yet the call for a boycott grows stronger each day.
Now the Norwegians will be the first Western nation to boycott Israeli academics:
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), the second largest in the Scandinavian country, is expected to decide next Thursday whether or not to declare an academic boycott against Israel.We can define it as anti-Semitism though.
The university's board will meet on November 12 to decide on the matter.
In 2007 the British Association of University Teachers considered boycotting Bar-Ilan and Haifa universities.
The decision to ban the two universities, which was eventually reversed, was premised on the claim that Haifa University limits academic freedom when it comes to research that criticizes Israeli policies, while Bar-Ilan was slammed for operating an affiliated college in the West Bank settlement of Ariel.
Merit Ernstad, who chairs the board of directors, told Ynet that despite her opposition to the move, she would not work to cancel the meeting, adding that those who called for the boycott could not be defined as pro-Palestinian or left-wing.
We will now see a rush of organizations to join in the boycott. The neo-Nazis from Britian, and the US will do so gleefully!
What Norway is doing does not surprise me. They welcomed Hitler with open arms on 9 April 1940. Their leader, Vidkun Abraham Lauritz Jonssøn Quisling was not only a supporter of Hitler, but modeled his government after Germany's.
While Quisling's name is synonymous with traitor in English. I guess it is acceptable in Norwegian. For now he and his policies are acceptable to the Norwegian people.
Pretty soon the Norwegians will start to show the true nature of their boycott and recreate scenes like this one:
What a unique way to teach history. Just repeat it!
