Rivlin: ‘I am a soldier’ in the fight against BDS movement

President Reuven Rivlin has offered to put himself at the disposal of Israel’s institutes of higher learning in the national struggle against BDS which includes academic boycotts.

“I am a soldier in your army,” he told the committee of heads of universities and colleges who met with him on Thursday at the President’s Official Residence.

Prof. Peretz Lavie, Committee Chairman and President of the Haifa Technion said that members of the committee were greatly concerned that academic boycotts will snowball and cause strategic damage not only to academic research but to Israel’s economy. “We’re at the eleventh hour,” he warned.
