Italian professors demand boycott of Israel’s ‘pro-occupation’ Technion

A group of Italian academics is circulating an online petition on Friday demanding that institutes of higher learning sever all cooperation with the Haifa-based Technion Institute for what they claim is its complicity in Israel’s military rule over the Palestinians.

“Israeli universities collaborate on military research and development of weapons used by the Israeli army against the Palestinian population, providing undeniable support to the military occupation and colonization of Palestine,” the petition reads.

The professors argue that the Technion should be shunned due to its close ties with Israel’s “military-industrial complex.”
