Wonder what drives Irish hatred of Israel? Is it just casual anti-Semitism or something deeper?

At its Annual Congress on Thursday 4th April 2013, the Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI) became the first academic union in Europe to endorse the Palestinian call for an academic boycott of Israel. The motion, which refers to Israel as an “apartheid state”, calls for “all members to cease all cultural and academic collaboration with Israel, including the exchange of scientists, students and academic personalities, as well as all cooperation in research programmes” was passed by a unanimous vote during today’s morning session.

What a vile organisation this teachers union is!

  1. The boycott is well meant but it isn’t a good idea, as it hurts primarily those in Israel who are most in favour of a just settlement.

    It is, however, good to see that some organisations aren’t afraid to stand up and criticise Israel’s land-grapping policies openly, and of course we should all be proud that this particular one is Irish.
