Oxford students vote down Israel boycott

Mike L. 
The Oxford University's student union has rejected a motion to impose a ban on Israeli products and companies. 
According to several media outlets, the students rejected the motion with a majority vote of 69 against, 10 in favor and 15 abstaining. 
A second motion, proposing that the student union join the global boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS) was also voted down, with the same result.

Seeing how both motions failed, they will not be presented to the National Union of British Students conference in April.
A bit of sunshine on a cloudy day.

My guess is that Galloway gave us a few points on that campus.


  1. Yaay us. In 2013 Jews in the UK successfully fight a new Nuremberg Race Laws and a new Kristallnacht. Aren't we wonderful.

    Israel needs to expel every single UK academic from Israel for a year. And anyone associated with this BDS effort needs to be banned from Israel for life. Let them learn how better to treat in cooperation with Mogadishu University. I'm sure no one would be able to tell the difference with the NHS.

    Israel needs to review its licensing policies with all intellectual property used by all UK academic institutions and either end all technology transfer 100% and boycott them all or jack up the licensing costs to the sky.

    Israel needs to stop admitting Arabs from Gaza and Yesha into their free medical care system. Put them on planes to London and let them sort it out.

    1. Them's fighting words, Empress! Kudos!
