Berlin - Israel’s Ambassador to Germany Yakov Hadas-Handelsman on Monday ratcheted up Israel’s criticism of the decision by the city of Frankfurt to award its Adorno Prize to US academic Judith Butler, who advocates boycotting the Jewish state.

Handelsman wrote that he was “disappointed “ by Frankfurt’s decision, because “in the center of [Butler's] agenda it states that Israelis should be boycotted because they are Israelis.”

Handelsman added that “it is disconcerting that a prize that memorializes the victims of the German Nazi boycotts will be presented to someone who sees a boycott as a legitimate method.”
