Yes, We must support academic boycott of this Imperialist State

It is high time the opinion in the European World especially, changed towards this long ignored area in the Middle East that has remained occupied forcefully and ruthlessly by Israel for several decades now. This has created the world's biggest prison of innocent inhabitants of Arab origin, namely the Palestinians.

In the present context, the American Government has taken hold of Iraq for Oil. Palestine is occupied for its land grabbed systematically chunk by chunk.

Occupation by any so-called 'civilised' state over another, is unforgivable and Israel, America or Europe, as they claim to be, do not show that they are, I am afraid!

Let the world see true light of Democracy for the people in both these states, NOW. Let people get their JUSTICE and FREEDOM. Let PEACE prevail in the world of today.
