Over 100 organizations sent an open letter to the Minnesota Timberwolves basketball team Saturday, requesting that it boycott an exhibition game against the Israeli team Maccabi-Haifa scheduled to be played next Tuesday at the Target Center.

The organizations also signed onto a worldwide sports and cultural boycott of Israel, saying that efforts to "present Israel as a 'normal' society" should be banned "until Israel complies with international law and ends its human rights abuses against Palestinians."
