Opposing the AUT blacklist

I think it is better to call the AUT action what it really is: a blacklist.

Perusing the web revealed that one of the opponents of the AUT blacklist is Sari Nusseibeh, Professor of Islamic Philosophy at Al Quds University

He stated:

"We are informed by the principle that we should seek to win Israelis over to our side, not to win against them," said the university, which is headed by Dr. Sari Nusseibeh.

"Therefore...we believe it is in our interest to build bridges, not walls; to reach out to the Israeli academic institutions, not to impose another restriction or dialogue-block on ourselves."

Judith Apter Klinghoffer’s piece is interesting and her blog

Thanks to Norm for reminding us of John Strawson's piece.
