08/31/2010

(JTA) — Some 150 academics and authors have thrown their support behind a boycott of a new West Bank cultural center.

In a letter released late Monday, the academics said they would not lecture in settlements and expressed their support for the theater professionals’ refusal to perform in Ariel.

“We will not take part in any kind of cultural activity beyond the Green Line, take part in discussions and seminars, or lecture in any kind of academic setting in these settlements,” the letter read.
