Israel academics urge settlement college boycott
Quote:"We refuse to participate in any academic activity in Ariel, an illegal settlement which aims to stop the Palestinians from creating their independent state," Ron Naaman of the Weizmann Institute of Science told the radio.

"We want our compatriots to understand that the pursuit of the occupation harms Israel and contributes to its delegitimisation on the international stage," he added.

The petition was signed by at least 155 academics.

The Ariel University Centre of Samaria has some 8,500 students, and is situated inside one of the larger settlements of the occupied West Bank.

Ariel, which is located southwest of the Palestinian city of Nablus, is home to about 18,000 people.

Education Minister Gideon Saar condemned the boycott in a statement, calling the petition a "provocation".

Last August, dozens of actors and Israeli artists announced they would boycott a new cultural centre at Ariel because it was built on occupied land.
