British hate Israel more than Palestinians

Buried in an article about the disgusting boycott of Israeli universities by the British AUT teachers' union is this fascinating tidbit:
In addition, Al-Quds University in eastern Jerusalem also came out against the academic boycott of Israel.

'We are informed by the principle that we should seek to win Israelis over to our side, not to win against them,' said the university, which is headed by Dr. Sari Nusseibeh.

'Therefore...we believe it is in our interest to build bridges, not walls; to reach out to the Israeli academic institutions, not to impose another restriction or dialogue-block on ourselves.'

In other words...the British are more anti-Israel than the Palestinian academics are!
