Five S. African universities join anti-Israel boycott

Students will audit universities' investments and service providers to ensure they don't deal with Israel

The student councils of five South African universities decided Monday to join an academic boycott of what they refer to as "Apartheid Israel," and said they will be pressuring their institutions to implement the boycott.

"The Israeli regime is proving itself to be anti-children, anti-student and anti-education," student council presidents of the universities said in a statement.

The institutions - the University of South Africa, Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Durban University of Technology, Mangasutho University of Technology and the University of the Western Cape – sought to defuse accusations of anti-Semitism.
