Hampshire College Students for Justice in Palestine: News Spreads
Word of the claims of Hampshire College Students for Justice in Palestine--and the counterclaims of the administration--is spreading and provoking increasing comment--more of which is appended to the original articles themselves.
Herewith, a few sites:
• Boston Globe: Peter Schworm, "Hampshire College cuts ties with fund invested with Israel"
(note the awkward attempt to achieve some sort of precision, within the limits of conciseness imposed by titles)
• Jewish Telegraphic Agency: "Mass college divests from firms"
(though note the slight disjuncture between the neutral wording of the article title--which manages to be both accurate and vague at the same time--and the way the title shows up in the URL)
• Jerusalem Post: Haviv Rettig Gur, "College denies divesting over IDF ties"
(emphasis here shifts to the administration's narrative)
