More on the backlash to Glasgow University’s apology: Signatories who also signed the Miller support letter

David Collier recently wrote about the backlash following Glasgow University’s apology for publishing an antisemitic article in a peer review journal on the University website.  

550 signed a petition attacking the university. The 550 are mostly academics but they include a few ‘big names’ who are not.

David writes

All the usual names have signed the petition. Ilan Pappe, Nicola Pratt, Hilary Rose, Ronit Lentin, Ken Loach and so on. We know who signs these things.

There are a few ‘usual names’ to add to that list: Avi Shlaim, Brian Eno (!), David Landy, Nira Yuval-Davis, John Chalcraft, Jonathan Rosenhead, Justin Schlosberg, Kamel Hawwash, Mike Cushman, Rebecca Gould, Richard Cooper, Ronnie Kasrils, Saladin Meckled-Garcia, Geoffrey Bindman, Iain Chalmers, Teodora Todorova.

Bindman is a member of the Labour Party. He should now be expelled for aiding and abetting antisemitism. So should other signatories who are Labour members.

Peer Review‘ is worth sweet FA if the ‘Peers’ suffer from IDS (Israel Derangement Syndrome) and are aiders and abetters to antisemitism.

I analysed the list for correspondence with the list who signed support for David Miller. Here are the 62 names that appear on both petitions. Where I wrote about someone in my blogs on the Miller signatories, I have added the relevant hyperlink.
