Boycott Israel forum held in London...
Fortunately, only 60 people attended...but this is very offensive.
A forum entitled "Why we must boycott apartheid Israel" was held at the University of London's student union to tie in with the trial at Uxbridge Magistrate's Court of seven activists accused of blockading the UK offices of Agrexco, an Israeli agricultural export company, in 2004.
Dr. Ghada Karmi, a Palestinian writer and academic living in London, told the audience of about 60 people that a boycott and sanctions against Israel must focus on attacking support for Israel.
"Israel must be a pariah until they learn to be civilized," she said at the forum, which was hosted last week by the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, a pro-Palestinian non-governmental organization.
Introduced as an expert witness at the trial, Dr. Uri Davis, academic and author of the book Israel: An Apartheid State, called for a boycott.
"We must boycott and disinvest in Israel until the rogue government submits to the values of human rights, international law and UN Resolutions 181 and 194," he said.
