ISRAELI ACADEMICS WRITE IN SUPPORT OF MANCHESTER STUDENTS

Professor Alan Gilbert, President

Dear Prof. Gilbert,

We write to you as Israeli academics and students who are horrified by the
destruction of educational establishments in Gaza and the ongoing
restrictions imposed by our government on Palestinian students unable to
pursue their studies in the West Bank and abroad.

We wish to express our support for students at Manchester University and
elsewhere, who are drawing attention to the gross violations of academic
and human rights in Gaza. We have seen their list of demands and feel that
it is in the interest of an established and reputable university such as
Manchester to address their concerns productively and to demonstrate that
it is committed to upholding human rights. We strongly believe that
without some pressure from outside Israel and without concrete support for
Palestinians nothing will change in our part of the world. For us,
Manchester students and students across Britain and the US are providing
an inspiring example of commitment and decent human compassion, which others
should emulate.

We urge you to express solidarity with our beleaguered Palestinian
colleagues and to recognize the legitimacy of the students’ concerns in
Manchester and elsewhere.

Sincerely,

Matan Boord, M.A. student, Haifa University
Dr. Raya Cohen, Tel Aviv University
Adi Dagan, M.A., Historian
Prof. Rachel Giora, Tel-Aviv University
Prof. Eva Jablonka, Tel-Aviv University
Mor Kandlik Eltanani, M.A. student, Tel-Aviv University
Dr. Orly Lubin, Tel-Aviv University
Eilat Maoz, B.A., Tel Aviv University
Dr. Anat Matar, Tel-Aviv University
Dr. David Nir, Physicist
Prof. Adi Ophir, Tel-Aviv University
Dr. Kobi Snitz, Technion, Haifa

BRICUP is an organisation of UK based academics, set up in response to the Palestinian Call for Academic Boycott. Its twin missions are:

- to support Palestinian universities, staff and students, and

- to oppose the continued illegal Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands with its concomitant breaches of international conventions of human rights,
its refusal to accept UN resolutions or rulings of the International 
Court, and its persistent suppression of Palestinian academic freedom.
