Norwegian University considering boycott of Israel....
Here we go again...
A Norwegian university's controversial vote on boycotting Israel is part of a nationwide campaign that may bring additional boycott votes at other Norwegian universities, said a representative on the board of executives at the University of Tromso.
Hundreds of scholars from Israel and elsewhere have signed a petition condemning the vote at the University of Trondheim, scheduled for November 12.
If the initiative passes, Trondheim, also known as the Norwegian University of science and Technology (NTNU), could become the first Western university to boycott Israel.
A representative of the executive board at the University of Tromso said pro-Palestinian activists are trying to call a vote on boycotting Israel there as well.
"A group of people have petitioned the board to hold a vote on this in the coming weeks, but no decision has been made yet," said the board representative, who spoke on condition of anonymity. He added there was "a national effort" to have Norwegian universities boycott Israel, and that the Norwegian boycott proponents were acting in unison with their American and British peers.
