UK: Jewish union officers at University College London now required to boycott Israel

A sabbatical officer is a full-time paid member of the union's executive.

The University College London Union has voted to boycott Israel, just hours after a series of terror attacks left one dead and many injured across the country, writes Justin Cohen.

Officers voted 14-4 for the motion which mandates the union to join the boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign.

Arieh Kovler of the Fair Play Campaign, said: ‘It’s astonishing that the UCL Union would pass a motion so full of hate”, adding that it turned the union “into a boycott-Israel organisation”.
