PLEASE READ STATEMENT AND SIGN PETITION
"Peace, peace and there is no peace." This applies to those opposed to efforts to discriminate against Jewish academics and professionals in Great Britain. Just when we thought we have defeated the antisemitic campaign and can relax, it is being resurrected. This time it encompases Jews as well as Israeli.
SPME has a new petition. Please, read it bellow:

To: To Academic and Professional Colleagues From Around The World

We will regard ourselves as Israeli academics and decline to participate in any activity from which Israeli academics are excluded." *
