LONDON – A controversial motion calling for a blanket boycott of Israel by students at Oxford University is expected to be resoundingly rejected this week.

The Oxford University Students’ Union (OUSU) is scheduled to discuss the motion on Wednesday, which calls for the student union to boycott Israeli institutions, goods and produce. It also calls for the OUSU and National Union of Students to join the boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign, known as the BDS movement, against the Jewish state.
