IMRA: Joint Hebrew U-Al Quds U. statement 

From IMRA - Thursday, May 19, 2005, Joint HU-Al Quds U. statement to counter British boycott:

In reaction to the academic boycott of Israeli academic institutions declared by the British Association of University Teachers (AUT), Hebrew University of Jerusalem President Prof. Menachem Magidor and Al-Quds University President Prof. Sari Nusseibeh today signed a joint statement in London calling for academic cooperation. The statement comes in affirmation of the continuing academic cooperation between the two universities.
AUT is now more Catholic than the Pope? Calling for boycotts that Al Quds University doesn't support? I'm sure Prof. Nusseibeh will be condemned for this (and not just by Hamas). But I can only offer my admiration for a principled stand.
