JTA: NYU president: Grad students’ BDS resolution ‘contrary to our core principles’

In a statement Tuesday, the Anti-Defamation League praised the university “for unequivocally denouncing” the union’s “ill-conceived resolution.” “Other universities in New York facing similar resolutions should follow NYU’s appropriate condemnation by sending a strong message that BDS campaigns on campus hinder any productive dialogue regarding the highly complex Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and create unnecessary divisions among students,” the ADL statement said.
