      Rep. Engel to ASA: Boycott Syria, Not Israel


      Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), the senior Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee has called on the American Studies Association (ASA) to end its boycott of Israeli institutions, reports The Hill.

      In a letter to the association’s leaders on Monday, Engel argued that boycotting Israel over its government’s treatment of “Palestinians” is a gross double standard.
