WATCH: Academics support EU settlement guidelines

In late September, 500 academics from around the world sent a letter to the EU demanding not to dilute its new guidelines limiting cooperation and funding of Israeli institutions located or operating beyond the pre-1967 borders. Among them were a number of Israeli academics.

Ishay Rosen-Zvi is one of the Israeli professors who signed the petition. “The only thing needed to end the occupation — and it’s amazing how simple it is — is to stop funding it,” he explained.
