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.

Is it surprising that the country that spawned Vidkun Quisling would be antisemitic?

There again, it could also be due to the Islamization of Scandinavian countries.

It's a boycott of Israeli academics and wherever you lazily copied and pasted your information from, as with most of the stuff you lazily copy and paste, is woefully wrong about it being the first.

Just as an after thought, did you know that the voluntary ban on Israeli goods by conscientious consumers is responsible for its GDP falling by 5% according to the Israeli Trade Department.
As i said to you many posts ago Fred, the tide has changed.

well according to the Israeli Trade Department the cause was do to the global recession and since then Israel's exports have been up but nice try in bringing you pointless cause into the picture since it made no sense what so ever. Was its the Boycott or something we in the real world call a global recession come on the left should stop taking credit for something you A did not cause and b. was not the root of the drop in exports, If I remember the global recession did start taking effect during Operation Case Lead and I do believe even Canadian exports are still down is it the Global Recession? or another leftest propaganda tool the Boycott of Canadian goods because of the Seal Hunt?

Andrew - You will like this because it seems my pointless cause is having an effect.

Globes Israel business news, March 09.

'It seems that more and more people are shunning Israeli products because the Israeli Manufacturing Association have reported growing concern that the public boycotts are impacting upon its economy.
Exports are down all across Europe it warns with the largest drop in demand coming from the UK, Turkey and the Scandinavian countries which has resulted in a 5% drop in the Israeli export economy.'

Argue with the IMA if you don't agree.

@ Lucy

here a overview of the so called 5% drop and is was not do to the boycott but of course and you can quote Israeli media but then again your not boycotting Israel correctly but the boycott was not the cause http://www.jewishfederations.org/page.aspx?id=198665
and in any recession exports will be down and please notice the date April 2009 but overall Israel economy has been strong but you British can quote the boycott back up with your so called European High Morals and ethics but it was not the cause.

As i said , argue with the IMA if you think you know better than them.
My European high morals and ethics say you don't but you will argue anyway.
