Signatories worldwide include 13 academics from City University of New York, 13 from Columbia, 9 from Harvard and 8 from Yale.

The statement was posted on Oct. 1 on the website jadaliyya.com with 231 signatories and a call for others to add their names to the list. On Friday, the list had reached 360 names.
