A top American lawyer has threatened to wage a legal war against British academics who seek to cut links with Israeli universities...."I will obtain legislation dealing with this issue, imposing sanctions that will devastate and bankrupt those who seek to impose bankruptcy on Israeli academics," he told the journal.

Jewish groups have attacked the UCU vote, which was opposed by Sally Hunt, its general secretary.
