Chairman of the Jewish Agency for Israel Executive, Zeev Bielski, said that the Jewish Agency will work together with the Jewish community in Britain to revoke a decision by the University and College Union, Britain`s largest trade union for academics, to boycott Israeli academic institutions.

Bielski added: "It is a shame that academics who are always a bastion of democracy and free speech should resort to such a discriminatory, stereotyped and warped manner of behavior."
