Anti-Semitism at the British Medical Journal

The BMJ is running a poll asking readers to vote whether medical schools and other academic institutions should boycott Israeli institutions.

BMJ is thus complicit in advancing anti-Semitism. If JAMA called for a boycott of Iranian or Palestinian or Cuban academics and medical researchers it would be pilloried in the MSM. Here at home, the BMJ pro-boycott poll (and you don't run such a poll unless you are promoting it) gets no mention. Double standard. You bet.

Here is a link to an article in the Jerusalem Post about the bastards at BMJ.

And here is a link to the ADL's anti-boycott campaign. The petition states "These highly politicized and blatantly biased attacks violate the basic tenets of journalistic and academic objectivity and disregard key facts of the complex Arab-Israeli conflict. Singling out Israel for boycott while ignoring the brutal human rights abuses occurring everyday in countries like Sudan, Zimbabwe and Iran isn't activism -- it's anti-Semitism."

We encourage drugwonk followers to click and take a stand against the BMJ and other outlets that offer safe haven to hatemongers.
