Say No to the Boycott

How could a journal such as BMJ even consider something as
unacademcially appealing as boycotting academics that live in a country
constantly surrounded by the threat of terrorism and suicide bombings.
Israel has much to offer, and boycotting them will only damage the
reputation of BMJ.
