The act of cowards and bigots.
Resolution passes by massive majority, calls for embargo on Israeli academic institutions, but not individuals.

The resolution calling for the boycott passed by an overwhelming 1040 in favor and just 136 against, at a meeting of the 10,000-strong organization in Denver on Friday night.
