Abraham Foxman

Dear Andre Moshè Pereira,

Recently, the British National Union of Journalists (NUJ) passed an outrageous resolution that urges a boycott of Israeli products. ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman and National Chair Glen S. Lewy said the resolution "violates the basic tenet of journalism - objectivity."

What makes this resolution even more insidious is that it follows on the heels of similar resolutions by other British professional unions in recent years. These resolutions all have the same goal: maliciously undermining Israel.

This resolution, like the others, deliberately disregards key facts of the complex Arab-Israeli conflict, including Hezbollah's aggression against Israel in July 2006 and its seizure of Israeli soldiers from sovereign Israeli territory.

It is more critical than ever that we take a stand. Please sign the letter to the NUJ. We must do everything we can to fight divestment and boycotts against Israel.
