Brandeis looks to resume ties with Palestinian university

Brandeis University said Thursday that its president and other leaders are in discussions with a Palestinian college about reestablishing a partnership, more than two months after suspending ties over a controversial Mideast rally.

The nonsectarian, Jewish-sponsored university in Waltham halted its decade-old partnership with Al-Quds University in November after the president of the Arab school refused to condemn a campus demonstration at which marchers reportedly flashed Nazi-like salutes and that included banners of dead suicide bombers.
