Science Museum accused over links to Israel: The Independent

Protesters claim it is promoting universities that aided recent military assault on Gaza
The Science Museum, one of Britain’s most prestigious public institutions, was embroiled in a row last night after being accused of promoting Israeli universities whose research was used in the country’s military campaign in Gaza.

More than 400 academics, a Nobel laureate and the former chair of the Science Select Committee called on the museum to cancel workshops due to be held this week that promote Israeli scientific achievements to schoolchildren. The critics plan to picket the event and accused the museum of promoting scientists and universities who are “complicit in the Israeli occupation and in the policies and weaponry recently deployed to such disastrous effect in Gaza”.
Many of the critics were behind a campaign in 2002 to impose an academic boycott on Israel. That campaign failed but it provoked debate worldwide over whether Israeli academics should be penalised for the actions of their government. Forty professors are among the signatories who want the workshops cancelled. They include Jonathan Rosenhead from the London School of Economics, who is leading the protest, Steven Rose from the Open University and the architect and historian Charles Jencks. The Zionist Federation is running the “educational seminars” at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry today and at the Science Museum on Thursday. The federation’s chair, Andrew Balcombe, said that they were purely educational and non-political. “We are proud to be running an event like this. It’s an educational event, not a political one in any way, shape or form. It’s merely to inform people of the contribution that Israel has made to science and technology … I’m not aware of any connection between defence and university research, and none that is stronger than in any other countries.”
Ian Gibson MP, the former chairman of the House of Commons Science Select Committee, the Booker-shortlisted writer Ahdaf Soueif, the architect Walter Hain, and the Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire also signed a petition against the workshops. The British Committee for the Universities of Palestine organised the petition.

That another victory for the BRICUP campaign! To read all about it, see the item below:

Israeli Science—researching destruction: BRICUP

BRICUP says: this is not a cause for celebration!
Israel Day of Science
WHAT YOU WON’T SEE INSIDE THIS MUSEUM
You won’t see:
 The details of the literally hundreds of R&D contracts that these same universities hold with the Israeli Ministry of Defense. Tel Aviv University says it is “playing a major role in enhancing Israel’s security capabilities and military edge”, according to its Annual Report.
 The University buildings constructed on land stolen from Palestinians
 The names of the university staff called up without protest to serve during the Gaza attack. (Most university teachers serve in the Reserve forces.)
 The smiles on the faces of the many University staff who provide policy advice on how to maintain and extend the illegal occupation of Palestinian Territories. For example
 The Haifa geography professor who devised the idea and the line of the Apartheid Wall that steals Palestinian land and livelihoods.
 The Tel Aviv philosophy professor who developed the military doctrines of targeted assassinations and of ‘disproportionate reprisal’
 The bodies of the innocent Gaza civilians wrecked by the onslaught of the 5th strongest army in the world This event is sponsored and paid for by the Zionist Federation of Great Britain. It is not a Science exhibition mounted by the Museum. It is a PR exercise for Israel, the state that has just carried out a brutal aggression against an imprisoned and virtually defenceless population. For more information contact:
