I'd like to call your attention to a post on the blog "Coffee and Chemo" where we follow RivkA as she fights cancer which began in her breasts and lives the life of a Zionist in Jerusalem with her husband and 3 children.
Her title: People Hate Jews Even More Than They Hate Cancer says it well. In a nut shell Israelis invited to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Middle East Conference on Breast Cancer, held in Egypt last week, were disinvited by order of Egyptian health minister. And we are supposed to be at peace with Egypt. Didn't some folks get the Nobel prize or something?
Now NOrway's second largest university is will be considering a boycott of Israel's academics.
This video gives a few good points about boycotting Israel, her people and her products.
And then theres also the nifty idea of participating in a Buycott which means buying as many Israeli products as possible and also letting the retailers know you're buying Israeli in support of Israel.
Academics out there should sign this petition signed by Prof. Bjorn Alsberg of Trondheim's NTNU calling on the board of the university to reject the proposed boycott.
