A signatory of the petition, Professor Ron Naaman of the Weizmann Institute, urged other academics to join him in boycotting the Ariel University Center this Sunday. During an interview with Israel Radio, Naaman added that the academic activities carried out in the West Bank hurt the State of Israel.

Professor Rivka Carmi, chair of the Heads of University Committee, has urged fellow faculty members to oppose the boycotts, claiming that such protests do not represent any academic institutions in Israel, and that the boycotts are irrelevant to other academic boycotts taking place around the world.
