Haroche expressed his support for Israeli academics, saying: "I strongly object to the academic boycott of Israel. Natural Science discipline academics do not boycott Israel, only humanities discipline academics do.


"Any person with common sense knows science acts as a bridge between people and it is the best way to benefit the world," he added.


On Sunday, Haroche attended a special event at the Jaffa residence of French Ambassador to Israel Christophe Bigot, where he was greeted by Science and Technology Minister Daniel Hershkowitz, Nobel laureate Prof. Ada Yonath and Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities President Prof. Ruth Arnon, as well as many more scientists from leading Israeli universities.
