An American professor who was invited to a conference in Israel claims
she was humiliated by Israeli security personnel at London’s Luton airport
on Thursday. Professor Heather Bradshaw, who researches neuroscience
at Indiana University, was at Cambridge University when she was invited
to Hebrew University in Jerusalem for a conference. “Our guest
arrived at Luton airport on Thursday in order to fly to Israel using
[Israeli airline] El Al, and she was shocked to discover that straight
away, the security personnel treated her as a terror suspect,”
said Haifa University professor Arik Rimmerman who submitted a complaint
to El Al in her name.

Academics who visit Israel earn the contempt of their colleagues: they
are treated with contempt by the Israeli security state. Boycott is
the best option.
