Citing Anti-Semitism, UK University Cancels Israel Apartheid Week Event

(Jewish Chronicle-UK) Rosa Doherty - The University of Central Lancashire has cancelled a panel discussion looking at the boycott of Israel as part of "Israel Apartheid Week" activity on its campus. A spokesperson for the university said, "We believe the proposed talk contravenes the new definition [of anti-Semitism adopted by the government] and furthermore breaches university protocols for such events, where we require assurances of a balanced view or a panel of speakers representing all interests. In this instance our procedures determined that the proposed event would not be lawful and therefore it will not proceed as planned."
