Unabashed Antisemitism

The British university lecturers who can't be bothered by mass murder of civilians in Congo, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Thailand, Iraq, Turkey or anywhere else, have again tried to pass a resolution boycotting Israel, a country which doesn't engage in such murders. The reasoning behind this is simple unabashed antisemitism, as explained by an official of the University and College Union, one Sean Wallis:
This marked the fourth consecutive year that the Union voted in favor of
boycotting Israel; the previous calls were never acted upon.Especially
disconcerting to Zionist Britons was a statement by Sean Wallis, secretary for
the Union's branch at University College London, who reportedly said the
position that a boycott was illegal was attributable to lawyers backed by people
with "bank balances from Lehman Brothers that can't be tracked down."

So that's clarified, isn't it.
