Anthropologists Vote to Join BDS Movement

College Fix reported on the American Anthropological Association (AAA):

Choosing from a “menu” of options devised by a task force with scant experience in Palestine, association members chose a compromise option at its annual business meeting in Denver Friday: boycott Israeli academic institutions but not individual academics.

The 1,040-36 vote in favor of AAA’s formal institutional boycott – one goal of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement – followed an even more lopsided vote against an anti-BDS resolution that was itself critical of Israel, Inside Higher Ed reports.
