UK: National student union votes to boycott Israel, but not ISIS

Via Times of Israel:
The UK’s National Union of Students passed a motion Tuesday to join worldwide efforts to boycott Israel over what it called Israel’s violations of Palestinian human rights. The motion explicitly aligns the union with the Palestinian-instigated Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign.

The NUC’s Executive Council passed motion 518, dubbed “Justice for Palestine,” with 19 members voting in favor, 12 against and three abstaining.

The motion also called on the British Parliament to stop arms sales to Israel.

The NUC is the UK’s umbrella student organization for some 600 higher education institutions representing 7 million students.
