do not be saddened and do not be disamyed by those in alef who have poured
more words on the boycott then they ever did against the occupation. This is the
academic world, it is academia and not reallity, that concerns them most.
The sanctions and boycott, including that of the academia, will take place,
if not this year, then next year. This is inevitable. This is beyond me or you -
it has to do with the energy of good people abroad who were there when the
Vitenamese needed them, when the South Africans needed them and when people
in Latin America needed them. They will succeed eventually, despite the fact
that this decision was overturned.
It was not overturned because it was 'stupid' as someone, obviously wiser than
all of us, argued here, nor becasue of tactical mistakes. It was overturned
because the Zionist state was using its usual mixutre of intimidation, manipualtion of Holocasut memory and money. This time they even had some help from within the more progressive camp in Israel. But evil does not prevail for ever and the efforts agaisnt it have to continue.
