#BDS: Bay Area Nobel laureates condemn academic boycotts of Israel

Nearly 40 American Nobel Prize laureates have signed a statement condemning boycotts and divestment campaigns against Israeli academics, academic institutions and research centers.

Several Bay Area Nobel laureates are among the signers of the statement. They include chemist Roger Kornberg, economist Kenneth Arrow and physicist Martin Perl of Stanford University, and physician Stanley Prusiner of UCSF.

The statement was coordinated by Kornberg and Steven Weinberg of the University of Texas, and it was issued Nov. 3 under the auspices of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East.
