      MK Wortzman Condemns ASA Academic Boycott

      Deputy Education Minister Avi Wortzman condemned on Monday night the ASA academic boycott of Yesha colleges as "a feeble attempt to interfere in internal Israeli politics under the guise of demand for human rights and academic equality. Israel is known for its positive approach toward giving all minorities, including PA Arabs equal rights to a higher education. The American Studies Association should retain its apolitical professional reputation."
