A letter of support for Israel and vehement opposition to the decision of the British Union of Students was sent to the British Minister of Education on Thursday by several members of the British parliament.

The letter stated that "while there is a legitimate debate in Israel and abroad regarding the settlements, it is important to distinguish between the debate and the activities of the BDS movement whose sole purpose is to undermine the existence of Israel."The MP's urged the National Student Union to overturn their decision stating that "Joining boycotts agaiinst Israel does not contribute in any way achieving peace but merely encourages anti-Semitism and hatred."
