Boston/JTA — Harvard President
Lawrence Summers said recent calls
for the universities to divest from
Israel were anti-Semitic.
The divestment movement con-
demns Israel for alleged human rights
abuses against the Palestinians. How-
ever, no school has yet announced
plans to divest from Israel.
Summers, who made his remarks last
week, was the first university leader to
speak out against the movement,
according to the Boston Globe.
"Profoundly anti-Israel views are
increasingly finding support in progres-
sive intellectual communities," said
Summers, who said he was not speaking
as Harvard president. "Serious and
thoughtful people are advocating and
taking actions that are anti-Semitic in
their effect, if not their intent."
