Making old Joseph happy

Natfhe conference supports blacklist of Israeli academics, says Engage.

Conference invites members to consider their own responsibility for ensuring equity and non-discrimination in contacts with Israeli educational institutions or individuals and to consider the appropriateness of a boycott of those that do not publicly dissociate themselves from such policies.

On one hand - who gives a flying fuck? On the other - that "boycott of those that do not publicly dissociate themselves from such policies" reminds too vividly this picture:

Of course, most of the Natfhe dumbos that voted for this resolution may be too young to remember and too stupid to understand.

I am waiting now for a notice about an e-mail address and a phone number where I could report a few closet Zionists that still support and condone secretly, while dissociating publicly.

Also - where does one get some politically correct ash to sprinkle on one's head while dissociating? And what is the correct way to tear one's clothes while going at it?

Questions, questions...

Update: I cannot avoid adding the following quote from the Guardian report:

...said Tom Hickey, a philosophy lecturer from the University of Brighton, member of the union's national executive committee and proposer of the motion. "Turning a blind eye to what an Israeli colleague thinks [sic!] about the actions of their government is a culpable blindness."

Priceless! Even good ole Joseph did not go into the suspects' thought process...
