      ASA Head Admits: Israel Better than Other Countries


      The head of the American Studies Association (ASA), which voted Monday to approve an academic boycott against Israel, has admitted that many countries have human rights records that are worse than that of the Jewish state.

      Curtis Marez, an associate professor of ethnic studies at the University of California, San Diego, admitted in a conversation with The New York Times that the ASA has never before called for an academic boycott of any nation’s universities.
