BREAKING - UK academic union rejects EU definition of anti-Semitism
May 31st 2011

LONDON – Britain’s largest trade union for academics has voted to disassociate itself from the EU working definition of anti-Semitism, leading to accusations it is institutionally racist.

The University College Union (UCU) passed the resolution at its annual conference in Harrogate in Yorkshire on Monday, claiming that the European Union Monitoring Center on Racism and Xenophobia definition stifles debate and is used to deflect criticism of Israel.

The motion, raised by activists on the National Executive Committee of the union who in recent years have led on the call to boycott Israeli academia, maintains that the charge of anti- Semitism is used to confuse criticism of Israeli government policy and actions with genuine anti-Semitism, and is being used to silence debate about Israel and Palestine on university campuses.

I'm proud of them. We might avoid being submerged by the dark after all, if people keep standing up for principle like this.

Well done!!

Its months old, and wasnt a proper vote, the head of the union had an anti-isreal agenda and only invited people who would vote in her favour, this is not breaking news.

Do your own damn research, look at the posts at the time this story broke. When they had the proper vote all they could come up with was a vote in favour of Palestinians.

By research you mean read some pro-Israeli blogs? no thanks. You made the claim the head of the union only invited people who would vote yes. I'd like to see evidence which backs up this claim, or you're full of shit.
