Amit Duvshani, who is completing his master's degree in molecular biology at the University of Tel Aviv, e-mailed Andrew Wilkie, a geneticist at Oxford University, asking to work in Wilkie's lab to continue his research into HIV. Wilkie's e-mailed response has since seen the world via the Internet. He rejected Duvshani's request on the grounds that the young man served in the "oppressive" Israeli army, as is compulsory for all Jewish Israeli men.
