UK Education Union Backtracks After Promoting BDS and Pledging to Blacklist Ads From Israeli Companies

The largest education union in the United Kingdom backtracked on a pledge to boycott advertisements from Israeli companies, with its co-head confirming on Wednesday that the statement was “made in error.”

The clarification came after criticism of a statement made by the National Education Union (NEU) — which claims more than 500,000 members — in the January/February 2019 issue of its magazine, which responded to a concern raised by a subscriber identified as Ian R K Davies from Edinburgh, who said he was pleased to read that the Trades Union Congress endorsed a motion in September “in favour of Palestinian citizens of Israel and of Palestinian refugees” in the previous edition.

The measure was passed without opposition, with dozens of audience members waving Palestinian flags and holding banners reading “I support Palestine.”

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
