News the HP Doesn't Cover: Nobel Laureates vs BDS Edition

We know how much the Huffington Post loves to write about Nobel laureates doing political things when they are protesting something Israel is doing. Do you think that applies across all cases? Elder of Ziyon found this article, a statement by more than thirty Nobel Prize laureates against the BDS movement. They claim simply that:
:“Academic and cultural boycotts, divestments and sanctions in the academy are:
* antithetical to principles of academic and scientific freedom,
* antithetical to principles of freedom of expression and inquiry, and
* may well constitute discrimination by virtue of national origin.”
Instead of fostering peace, these boycott and divestment efforts are likely to be counterproductive to the dynamics of reconciliation that lead to peace."
Think the HP will cover this story?

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
