California's Middle East Studies Profs Target Israel

My latest Campus Watch article, which appears today at Frontpage Magazine, examines the involvement of California Middle East studies academics in the anti-Israel BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) movement, including a petition supporting the recently failed divestiture effort at UC Berkeley:

In recent months, two University of California campuses, Berkeley and San Diego, have been embroiled in fierce debates following the introduction of anti-Israel divestiture resolutions by their respective student senates. Both were defeated, but not before a number of California's Middle East studies academics signed a petition supporting divestment.

The petition is posted at the website for the U.S. Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, which is dedicated to the BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) movement. The list of names reads like a Who's Who of California's anti-Israel academics.
