Anti-Zionist and Post-Historians Pose an Existential Threat to Israel’s Continued Autonomy

As Israel's new prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, said in a recent interview, "Politicians, whether they know it or not, are guided by ideas. Right now, in Israel, they are starting to be guided with the wrong ideas." These wrong ideas stem from the current post-Zionist discourse promulgated in the media and academia. … Today, though, the majority of Zionist students on Israeli campuses remain silent while a small but vocal minority of anti-Zionist and post-Zionist students are taking control of the public discourse. This creates a tragic reality as Israel's future leaders are being inundated with anti-Zionist and post-Zionist ideas as part of the education upon which they presumably will base their eventual leadership.

Terrorism Aviv University accepts a New PhD Student

He already got his MA from Tel Aviv University in "ethics." That is correct, Tel Aviv University evidently considers Palestinian anti-Semitism and terrorism "ethical." He is also a militant supporter of Israel's extermination under what the anti-Semitic Left these days calls the "one-state solution." His group has made headlines for demanding that Israeli universities themselves be targeted for boycott (see the following article). So here we have the spectacle of Tel Aviv University treating this pogromchik as a scholar and accepting him for PhD studies. He is on record as claiming that Israel is conducting genocide against Arabs (see the following article). Anyone who thinks Tel Aviv University has retained any academic standards at all will now have to think again.

Ben Gurion University – David Newman's (Dept of Political Science) Jerusalem Post Editorial spurs reader responses

Bashing critics of the Left, David Newman purports to defend free speech. But in his April 14 op-ed "Bashing the academic Left," he simply tries to silence those who disagree with him.

University of Ottawa - Denis Rancourt - Tenured pseudo-academic crackpot propagandist fired. Why not in Israel?

Denis Rancourt was fired recently from the University of Ottawa in physics. He had tenure. He describes himself as an "anarchist" and a "true communist," whatever that is. He would rant at length in his classes against the "Zionist Lobby" and against capitalism and against the United States. He had long turned his courses into exercises in one-sided indoctrination and politicization. Hmmm, where on earth have we heard about such things before?

Ben Gurion University – David Newman (Dept of Political Science) – Was David Newman's nasty outburst caused by the refusal of SPME to sponsor a speaking tour by him as he was demanding?

One of the groups smeared by BGU leftist and Tikkun columnist David Newman in the Jerusalem Post a few days ago was the Scholars for Peace in the Middle East. SPME is a pro-Israel advocacy group, hardly associated with the "Right."  Indeed for years I have criticized its directors for failure to confront the anti-Semitic Left more vigorously and for their delusion that such people may be "persuaded" and convinced.   In any case, now it turns out that David Newman's tantrum against SPME and nasty outburst in the Jerusalem Post was actually caused by the refusal of SPME to sponsor an all-expenses-paid speaking tour for Newman, as he was demanding from them a while back.

Ben Gurion University – David Newman (Dept of Political Science) – Yet another Enemy of Freedom of Speech and Democracy at Ben Gurion University

That does not stop Newman from attacking on the pages of the Jerusalem Post critics of seditious leftist anti-Israel propagandists pretending to be academics. Newman dismisses critics of anti-Israel critics as "McCarthyists," as people who should be stripped of their right to exercise THEIR freedom of speech, prevented from criticizing anti-Israel extremists. Newman specifically attacks Dr. Daniel Pipes of Campus-Watch.org, Prof. Gerald Steinberg of NGO-Monitor, and Israeli academic watchdog groups (such as isracampus.org.il), for the "crime" of exposing anti-Israel fanatics serving on Israeli campus faculties. In most cases, these watchdogs simply cite the malicious hate propaganda produced by these fanatics in their own words. But in the eyes of the neo-fascist McCarthyist Left, critics of the Left are not entitled to freedom of expression.

Ben Gurion University – David Newman (Dept of Political Science) has arguments casually shredded by Winfield Myers of Campus Watch in response to Newman's assault on critics of Left-wing dogma

Critics who cannot muster empirical arguments often settle for ad hominem attacks and hackneyed clichés, and no cliché is more worn than the charge that off-campus critics of higher education engage in McCarthyism. … But feelings of persecution lend a touch of authenticity to lives of some academics, providing as they do a veneer of viability and importance to those who might otherwise be overlooked and ignored.

Ben Gurion University – David Newman (Dept of Political Science) – Extreme Left-wing critic who can not tolerate criticism from others

The academic McCarthyism of the Right endangers Israeli democracy and society. It threatens the very basis of freedom of speech. The self-styled patriots are causing enormous damage to the country and should be prevented from assuming the cloak of self-appointed defenders of the common good, which they are clearly not.

The Israeli Left just awarded to itself the Israel Prize once again

A panel of people appointed by Labor Party Minister of Education Yuli Tamir, all of whom had personal ties to the Israel Democracy Institute and had received money from it, decided to award this year's Israel Prize to - (drumroll) - the Israel Democracy Institute (IDI). The IDI is a leftist political SWAT team, promoting the Left's agenda.

University of Exeter - Ilan Pappe continues to promote fictitious "massacre"

Pappe’s own centerpiece contribution in the book is a long-winded “revisionist” (meaning, largely false) retelling of his own adventures in inventing the imaginary “massacre” of Arabs in Tantura. This “massacre” is one that Pappe and his MA student Teddy Katz decided took place in 1948 near Haifa just before Israeli independence was declared. The evidence for the existence of such a massacre? None. One is just expected to take Pappe’s word for it.

When it Does not Add Up: Anti-Israel Mathematicians at Israeli Universities

Israeli far-leftist anti-Israel academics in the mathematics field may have their own abstract ways of looking at things, but they are paid by the Israeli taxpayers, and then promote an anti-Israel agenda that sometimes involves terrorist attacks against those same taxpayers.

Galilee College - Hannah Safran - the Hamas' Hannah Montana

A few days ago Safran had a column in the leftwing Neo-Nazi web magazine Counterpunch, published by Alexander Cockburn and his band of jihad cheerleaders. The title of her rant is, and I am not making this up: "Ready to be Traitors: The Israeli Resistance." ... In it she calls for Israeli "resistance" against Israel, the code word used by leftists for terrorism. In it she also hails the violent "anarchists" who attack police and soldiers in their efforts to sabotage Israel's security wall and so allow the Palestinian mass murderers to enter Israel.

Hebrew University - Shmuel Amir (Dept of Health Economics, School of Public Health) justifies and celebrates Palestinian mass murderers:

"Blood on their Hands" is probably one of the most successful slogans ever invented by Israel's propaganda machine. It has a most powerful and immediate impact, both visual and emotional: it suggests a brutal murderer who should be confined to a prison for the rest of his natural days.

It further eliminates the need for any more profound enquiry. No one need ask why he committed such a barbaric deed or if his victim had done him any wrong. And it also eliminates any possibility of negotiations with him or with those in whose name he was acting (in our case the Hamas and other Palestinian groups).

Tel Aviv University – Shlomo Sand (Dept of History) has book reviewed by fellow TAU Historian and Israel Prize Laureate Anita Shapira, who discredits the book as “artificial”

Sand bases his arguments on the most esoteric and controversial interpretations, while seeking to undermine the credibility of important scholars by dismissing their conclusions without bringing any evidence to bear. … Sand would like to promote a new Israeli agenda, striving for harmony between Jews and Arabs, to be based on the remodeling of Jewish identity. … But reconciliation between peoples makes necessary a mutual recognition of truth, not an artificial analysis that presents a fabricated front, a quasi-mask that hides the real differences. What Sand is offering is this kind of artificial analysis.

Galilee College - Hannah Safran calls for Israeli "resistance" against the existence of Israel on the anti-Semitic Counterpunch web Site

'We, the resistance movement in Israel, will continue our struggle against the war in Gaza and the racism that prevails within Israeli society. We will continue to grow, we will connect to other social and environmental protest groups, and we will hopefully help change our society for the better.'

Ben Gurion University - Neve Gordon (Dept. of Political Science) is an Israeli Disgrace

If western leaders want to be conceived as credible, they must change their policy and meet with Hamas as well. Otherwise, their decision to meet Lieberman will be rightly perceived as hypocritical and duplicitous, and the pervasive perception in the region – that the United States and Europe are biased in Israel's favour – will only be strengthened.

Stalinism Day at Tel Aviv University

The content of the talks at the "conference" was exactly as expected. Several of the speakers were party henchmen from the Stalinist MAKI party and not academics at all. Representatives of the communist party were on the scene distributing party "literature" and propaganda books. Every single speaker celebrated and praised communism, and most spent time attacking Zionism, Israel and Israel's very existence, praising Arab terrorism as "resistance" to Zionist colonialism.

At Tel Aviv University, one-sidedly promoting communism is "academic freedom," but protesting human rights abuses by Communist China is prohibited by the campus officials!

The president of Tel Aviv University, Prof. Zvi Galil, has just issued this apologia in defense of the one-sided communist indoctrination conference to be held at Tel Aviv University.  We have left the English and spelling uncorrected. Here is the original message:

Tel Aviv University to be Converted to a Gulag (for a day)

Many of us have long suspected that Tel Aviv University (TAU) often serves as a communist re-education gulag, dominated by its post-Zionist anti-Israel far-leftists in whose classrooms no Zionist or non-leftist opinion may ever be expressed. But this coming March 25, 2009, it really will be a gulag! At least for one day! Israel's pro-terror communist party MAKI will hold its "congress" that day in the TAU law school, which has been much in the news recently for attempts at suppressing academic freedom there, gulag-style.

Tel Aviv University's Long Track Record of Pandering to Communism

It seems that an art exhibit was being shown on the campus of TAU last year in the persecution of the "Falun Gong" in China was depicted. The Falun Gong are a sort of meditation, exercise movement with some features of a religious cult. China has been brutally suppressing and persecuting members of the movement. Some of the artists in the exhibit were survivors of China's forced labor camps, and endured the tortures they depict. The Chinese Embassy in Israel was not amused and complained to the heads of Tel Aviv University. In one of the most brazen acts of cowardice in the Western world, the university officials ordered the exhibit shut down in order to appease the Chinese communists!!!

The Israeli Academy and the Gaza War

Many of the Israeli scholars who opposed the war in Gaza did so under the increasingly fashionable guise of being ‘lone voices,’ standing up the oppression of their own country. In the English language environment (including the internet) in which many of them published, this claim was used as an all-purpose calling card and publicity gimmick. The most common themes in their writing are that of Gaza being a ‘prison’ and the need to compare Israel’s actions to some other ultra-evil regime. The favorite regimes for comparison have been the Nazis, but sometimes apartheid south Africa, Russian pogromists, or European colonizers can be recruited. The theme of Gaza being a colonized ‘prison’ is used in order to justify the ‘resistance’ of Hamas, meaning its terror and rockets. This recycles the dialectic of Albert Memmi’s Colonizer and Colonized or Fanon’s Wretched of the Earth. Under the logic of "post-colonialism," the colonized is always allowed any extreme so long as he is opposing what can be dismissed as colonialism.

Tel Aviv University - Yehuda (Judd) Ne'eman (Dept of Film and Television) has no problem accepting the Israel Prize (and the prize money) from the State he condemns

Yehuda Ne'eman, like so many of members of the Far Left academic mafia, is a hypocrite. He already made clear that he would not refuse the Prize, awarded by the "judges" Prof. Ram Levi, director Orna Ben Dor and Dr. Anat Preminger. "I feel like I belong and I don't belong; the part that belongs very much wants to be a part of things and receive recognition, while the part that doesn't belong is kicking and telling me all the things a person has to say to himself and not to anyone else," he told Ha'aretz, after expressing delight at the news of the Prize. "With all the horrible things Israel does, I know that from the perspective of history, on the scale of evil, we are not at the top of the chart."  How comforting.

Ben Gurion University - Neve Gordon (Dept of Political Science) - Al Jazeera Columnist article draws response from IsraCampus.Org.il reader

Rivka I can not understand why an eminent institution like Ben Gurion University would continue to employ Professor Neve Gordon. I am appalled to learn that he has taken up a position as a columnist with the web site Aljazeera.com. Are you not aware of his anti Israel comment and activities? He has his articles still posted on Holocaust denial websites; apparently he thinks Israel is a pariah state. He certainly has distorted historical facts and turned the classroom into a propaganda battlefield.

Goldsmiths College - Eyal Weizman (Dept of Visual Cultures) claims Israel is manipulating law in order to brutalize the innocent Palestinians

' Whether Israeli field commanders would have sanctioned the level of destruction seen in Gaza if they felt more exposed to international legal action is unclear. In any case the heart of the problem is not some imagined sterile attack of controlled warning and precise destruction, but rather the dangers that flow from the introduction of the principles of lawfare to Israeli military-legal arsenals.'

'Prof. Bar-Tal says the simplistic view most Jewish Israelis hold is a consequence of living daily in the face of ongoing violent conflict. A socio- psychological infrastructure is developed for the sake of self-preservation that on the one hand is functional in coping with the conflict, but on the other hand feeds it.'

UCLA - Yael Korin calls Israel a "rogue state"

Several of the protesters insisted that Israel acts outside of international law.

“We want to let the Batsheva group know that we’re not going to treat Israel as a civilized country. Israel is a rogue state,” said Yael Korin, a pathology researcher at UCLA who is also an endorser of the campaign.

Korin, who was born in Israel and has family members who are Holocaust survivors, said it is very difficult for her family to come to terms with her political views.

“My mother is 92, and it’s hard for her to understand why I’m doing this. She is a victim of history,” Korin said. While understanding the history, Korin said Palestinians should not have to pay for what happened.

So here we have the spectacle of an anti-Semitic Israeli lecturer turning out Bash-Israel and Bash-the-Jews propaganda for one of the most openly anti-Semitic group of jihadniks on the planet. Ben Gurion University regards Gordon's anti-Israel hate propaganda as "scholarship" and "research" and granted him tenure on its basis, proving that serious academic standards no longer are upheld at Ben Gurion University.

Israeli anti-Israel Academics think that International Pressure on Israel will miraculously solve the region's problems

We wish to express our support for students at Manchester University and elsewhere, who are drawing attention to the gross violations of academic and human rights in Gaza. We have seen their list of demands and feel that it is in the interest of an established and reputable university such as Manchester to address their concerns productively and to demonstrate that it is committed to upholding human rights. We strongly believe that without some pressure from outside Israel and without concrete support for Palestinians nothing will change in our part of the world. For us, Manchester students and students across Britain and the US are providing an inspiring example of commitment and decent human compassion, which others should emulate.

Trinity College (Ireland) - Ronit Lentin (Dept of Sociology) promotes Israel's Destruction through the Academic Polysyllable

A quick surf through Lentin’s personal website, entitled "Free Radikal," tells a lot about her. Neutrality and objectivity play no role. She is a self-described “radical,” even choosing the spelling of her site as “radikal” (how nonconformist and anti-Anglo-Saxon of her!). Her website consists almost entirely of Palestinian propaganda against Israel.  Throughout the site Lentin expresses her “rage” against Israel for daring to defend its civilians from rocket attacks.

Hebrew University - Nurit Peled-Elhanan (Dept. of Education) accuses genocide in Gaza; bandies the word “talk” as a cure-all to all ills

[Peled-Elhanan]“Enough, stop. You will not draw me into that. The State is not defending itself. The State is slaughtering. Slaughtering.

[Interviewer] Why slaughtering? It is defending the residents of the south.

“Enough. Oh, really. That is defence? It is slaughter. It is preparing the ground for the next terrorist attacks, the next terror, the next bloodbath. It is anything but defence”.

Then what is Israel supposed to do in this situation?

“Talk”

With whom?

“With whomever possible, with whomever is willing.”

University of Exeter - Ilan Pappe (Dept. of Political Science) continues to claim ghettoizing, ethnic cleansing and genocide; gets published in the Teheran Times

Ethnic cleansing is ineffective here. The earlier strategy in the Strip was ghettoizing the Palestinians there, but this is not working. The Jews know it best from their history. In the past, the next stage against such communities was even more barbaric. It is difficult to tell what does the future hold for the Gaza community: ghettoized, quarantined, unwanted and demonized.

Tel Aviv University - Daniel Bar-Tal (Dept. of Political Psychology) for whom no reason is good enough to go to war

This is probably one of the most difficult periods in my political life as a Jew living in the State of Israel. The events of the war in Gaza hit hard my foundations of hope that a peaceful conflict resolution between Israelis and Palestinians can be achieved in the near future. Moreover, my trust in humanity has been weakened seeing the ease with which human beings rally for a war, exercise blind patriotism, express desire for vengeance, delegitimize the opponent, and develop insensitivity to human life, denial of responsibility, self-righteousness and moral entitlement. This is in contrast to the great difficulty that human beings have in mobilization for peace. We see over and over again that it takes many years and many efforts to persuade people in the importance of peace, but it takes an extremely short time to convince people in the need of war. It is even more difficult to establish moral considerations.

Anti-Zionists and Post-Historians exposed gleefully rewriting history in an attempt to prove that Jewish labor and love of the land was really just a reason to destroy another people

The rewriters, like Benny Morris, Ilan Pepe and Baruch Kimmerling, mostly publish first in English to gain the praise of the West's "justice seekers." Their works are then quickly grabbed for translation into Arabic and displayed in marketplaces in Damascus, Cairo and Tunis. Their conclusion is almost uniform: that in practise Zionism amounted to an evil, colonialist conspiracy to exploit the people dwelling in Palestine, enslave them, steal their land, and disinherit them. … Such calumny is not new: the doctrine that Zionism is a colonialist movement serving imperialism by exploiting and enslaving Arab peasants and laborers was formulated and disseminated in Soviet propaganda organs since the 1920s, embellished with "scientific" terms from the Marxist-Leninist lexicon. … Ze'ev Sternhal, Yigal Eylam, Yehoshafat Harkabi and many other academics, slavishly imitated by journalists and politicians, regard stressing religious, cultural and emotional affinity to the land - the most important rationale for our existence here - with sheer contempt. They see it as contaminated by nationalism, fundamentalism, fetishism ("a pronounced national fetish, like the Land of Israel," wrote Eylam) - and even fascism.

Hebrew University - Yirmiyahu Yovel (Dept of Philosophy) gets a response to his pro-Hamas propaganda

“In the name of a justified goal, Israel rained down fire and destruction on a closed ghetto with one of the highest population densities in the world. For three weeks, parents and children were crowded into unprotected apartments or fled from one school to another, from one hospital to the next; but they had no refuge from the bombs of the best air force in the world, or the shells of ground forces that sacrificed scores, even hundreds of these people in order to minimize the risk to its own soldiers, and to strike at terrorist fighters, who should justly be hit, but not at any price.”

Not a single word is mentioned in regard to Kassams flying from Gaza to Sderot, Beersheva, Ashkelon or the kibbutzim nightly, mercilessly... not a word is uttered by the good Israeli Professor Yovel. Hamas doesn’t think about such sensitive things as houses, women and children. Their motto is to kill as many Jews as they can ....

The Hebrew University Tenured Left launches a Jihad against a General

Shkedi personally shot down two Syrian planes in the 1982 Lebanon War. He led Israel's task force on Iran and also holds a degree from the US Naval School. He is outspoken about Iran and Israel's security needs. So naturally the Friends of the Hamas around the world consider him to be a war criminal. And that is what has upset the Tenured Left. A group of Hebrew University leftist faculty members are lobbying to prevent Shkedi from even being considered for the post. They are led by far-leftist Yaron Ezrahi, a political science professor at Hebrew U and the main personality at the Far-Leftist think tank, the Israel Democracy Institute. He is all in favor of freedom of speech for the Left, he promotes affirmative action for Arabs, and he denounces Israel for its "war crimes." He was joined by Prof. Ruth Hacohen, who teaches musicology there.

University of the Witwatersrand (once the bastion of Afrikaaner racism) - Ran Greenstein (Department of Sociology) calls for boycotts of Israeli "apartheid"

'The main problem here is the long-term success of the Israeli strategy of 'externalizing' the Palestinian issue. This has been consistently the case: from the ethnic cleansing of 1948, through the suspension of the post-1967 occupied territories in an eternal limbo of non- annexation and non-liberation, all the way to the various post-Oslo disengagement plans that leave Palestine inside the boundaries of Israeli control while Palestinians remain outside the boundaries of citizenship and rights. While the occupation is still the paramount reality in the daily lives of Palestinians, it has become invisible to the majority of Israelis (academics included), who neither see it nor feel its presence in their daily lives. They do not understand what they have to do with the conditions of life of people who live in 'foreign' territories. In this sense, Israeli Jews are different from white South Africans, whose daily lives under apartheid made it impossible for them to ignore the presence of large numbers of black people around, in the workplaces, in the streets, and even within their households. The reality of apartheid was fully visible to all white South Africans, regardless of their social and political positions, and therefore the relationship between 'crime' and 'punishment' (in the form of sanctions) was fairly obvious. How can this relationship be made similarly visible to Israeli academics? ... This argument is a call for smart, focused sanctions that get people involved at local levels and provide them with concrete targets to achieve.'

Ben Gurion University – Neve Gordon (Dept of Political Science) promotes the re-division of Jerusalem; calls on Obama to intrude on Israel’s sovereignty and to impose sanctions

The task might seem greater than it actually is, since ironically the majority of Jews (despite the elections) and Palestinians in the region support the two-state solution. The deadlock has occurred because the Israeli political configuration has allowed a sizable minority of settlers and their sympathizers to block all past governments from making the necessary compromises. This deadlock, however, can be overcome if the international community, and particularly the US, assumes a more interventionist role. And while intervention may be conceived by some as anti-Israeli, particularly if such intervention includes sanctions, it is the only way to secure Israel's existence in the long run. Obama should not therefore hesitate to compel the incoming government to adopt the two-state solution. This would be the genuine pro-Israeli stance.

Isracampus hereby issues a public call to the Attorney General of Israel and to the University of Haifa to investigate whether the publication of the names and photos of senior Israeli army officers on the ALEF chat list, together with (false) allegations that these people are war criminals, constitutes incitement to murder!

The names and photos of Israeli military officers who participated in “Operation Cast Lead” are posted on the ALEF anti-Semitic chat list, operated under the auspices of the University of Haifa, so that these officers can be persecuted and harassed legally in Europe. We at Isracampus have decided not to publish the officer names as a public service.  (The names and photos were originally gathered by the Uruknet web site, a site run by exiled Iraqi Baathists loyal to Saddam Hussein)

The names were posted by Dorothy Naor, a notorious anti-Semitic Israeli communist, on ALEF on Jan 25, 2009. She claims that “we and others will continue doing whatever is possible”.

If you wish to join us in this call, please contact:

This Hatred is Disseminated via the University of Haifa

 

Oxford - Avi Shlaim (Dept of History) unsurprisingly sides with Turkish PM over Davos tirade

Mr. Erdoğan’s comments were not diplomatic because diplomats use very low key, cautious language and usually end up saying nothing. He expressed a strong position and his language was not diplomatic. But I uphold his right to express his feelings in his own way.

Oxford - Avi Shlaim (Dept of History) used as a source for Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan's anti-Israel tirade at Davos forum

The other "scholar" cited by Erdogan is the Israel-hating professor Avi Shlaim, who is on the faculty of Oxford University. Shlaim is a pseudo-historian who has made a career out of serving up anti-Israel propaganda, including for the extremist Jew-hating "The Nation" magazine. Shlaim gained notoriety when it turned out he was one of the two "academics" who prostituted themselves for Neo-Nazi Norman Finkelstein. He served as accomplice in the attempts by Finkelstein's supporters to maneuver DePaul University into granting Finkelstein tenure on the basis of his anti-Semitic rants.

Ben Gurion University - Amnon Raz-Karkotzkin (Dept of History) supports pro-terror Arab Party Balad

"The ongoing incitement against Balad stems from a fear of equality, which is why Azmi Bishara is being persecuted," he stated. "Find someone who seriously thinks that he spied for Hizbullah. Anyone looking for a spy wouldn't have used Azmi Bishara," he added. …"Balad doesn't give me an identity and I don't vote in the elections in order to secure self-identity. Balad's platform talks about full civil equality "… "I feel compelled to identify with Balad's demand for a state of all its citizens," he said.

UCLA - Gabriel Piterberg (Dept of History) participates in Israel bashing symposium at UCLA

UCLA history professor Gabriel Piterberg followed. He described an "Israeli onslaught on Gaza Palestinians" and labeled IDF soldiers "war criminals."
He alleged the "forced removal of the indigenous people in favor of the settler nation-state," with Palestinians supposedly being the former and Israelis the latter.
He cited Karl Marx, referencing popular revolts in China and India and the Algerian struggle against France as examples of the proletariat overthrowing oppressors. Palestinians would rise up next, he predicted.
He repeated the debunked charge that Israel has killed Gazans using white phosphorous.

Ben Gurion University - Oren Yiftachel (Dept. of  Geography) makes his bed with the Hamas

He points out at the fact that the recent operation in Gaza has been launched and backed by two outgoing Governments in Jerusalem and Washington against a "democratically elected Government". Here Yiftachel excels himself by arguing that Israel and the USA had no legitimacy to attack Hamas because their administrations were at their "dying days", while the regime in Gaza enjoys popular and legal acceptability. And what does the world do, he cried out, "…it imposed sanctions on the Hamas Government", and by doing so it "punished the occupied twice: once by the brutal occupation and a second time for attempting to resist".

Tel Aviv University - PM Olmert: No funding for bodies that refuse to employ officers

"In my opinion, any university that disqualifies lecturers on such grounds, before an examination [of their service] has been concluded, is not suitable to receive funding from the Israeli government," Olmert said.

Olmert denounces Tel Aviv University anti-democratic leftist faculty members as self-righteous hypocrites

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert came to the defense of Col. Pnina Sharvit-Baruch on Sunday, speaking out against those seeking to prevent her from taking up a teaching position at Tel Aviv University when she finishes her IDF career in the coming weeks.

The prime minister blasted the "self-righteous hypocrites" at the university who "presume to preach morality" without first learning the facts of a case.

Bar Ilan University - Ultra-Moonbette Ariella Azoulay denied tenure at Bar Ilan

Let us be clear - she was not evicted because of her extremist politics but because she is a laughingstock of a "scholar." But that is what makes this newsworthy. AT any other university, including my own, someone like her would have sailed through to tenure, all on the BASIS of her "sensitive progressive political ideology." She has essentially an empty academic publishing record (I found one paper in a French journal). It is only at Bar Ilan that being a leftist is neither a sufficient nor a necessary condition to getting tenure!

Tel Aviv University - Prof. Shlomo Avineri denounces the "McCarthyism" at Tel Aviv University, the attempt to impose an anti-Israel leftist litmus test on those who can teach in the TAU Law School

'The attempt to "protect" those who belong to the left while employing McCarthy-style methods against those associated with the right is nothing but hypocrisy, which has no place in academia. The people working to prevent Sharvit-Baruch's appointment do not realize that the proposal gives legitimacy to the dark forces that lurk on the sidelines of Israeli society, to begin pursuing the voices in academia that strike them as "unpatriotic" or "insufficiently Zionist." This may even apply to some of the people heading the fight against Sharvit-Baruch.'

Tel Aviv University - Daniel Breslau (Dept. of Sociology) gives “advice” to President Obama on how to manipulate Israel for Palestinian Benefit

All of these tactics have been convenient for Israel and the US, allowing them to support Palestinian rights and peace in principle, while in practice denying them. Through Palestinian fragmentation, continued violence that Israel itself often instigates, and the decline of the Palestinian Authority, Israel has worked hard to make the complaint of `no partner` a reality.

This is why George Mitchell and the Obama Administration have such a difficult task. The new president must anticipate the lengths to which Israel will go to avoid direct, substantive, and binding negotiations. Real pressure on Israel will inevitably result in a confrontation as Israel will make moves such as those listed above to test Obama. He will have to be wise to Israel`s tactics, and will have to be ready to neutralize them as soon as they arise.

UCLA - Gabriel Piterberg (Dept. of History) draws a false analogy; Attempts to divert attention way from the missiles falling on Israeli heartland

Perhaps with the benefit of hindsight, the attack on Gaza will be seen as the action of a colonial power that is running out of ideas; not unlike France in the final stage of the Algerian war.

Ben-Gurion University – Anti-Israeli Extremists utilize the University closure to publish additional Israel-bashing materials

Ben-Gurion University, the campus with arguably the largest number of anti-Israel extremist faculty members, was shut down for weeks as Hamas rockets bathed Beersheba. Several rockets landed close to the campus. Public-school buildings in Beersheba were destroyed by rockets. Yet leftist faculty members at BGU went on the warpath against Israel and in support of Hamas. In an article titled "Black January," BGU sociologist Lev Grinberg proclaimed Hamas terrorists to be the true Maccabees, struggling against the evil empire:

I admit that I find the name "Cast Lead" in bad taste because of its allusion to Chanukah and the Maccabees who fought against a mighty conqueror. If indeed there is a struggle here of the weak against an occupying empire, it is the struggle of Hamas against Israel, not the other way around. Our self-image as the weak victim is utterly surreal and trapped in the mythology of the Jews as the ultimate victims, regardless of reality.... The firing of missiles by the prisoners in protest against their starvation was interpreted as aggression, while their oppression by their jailers was interpreted as self-defense.

Grinberg had earlier denounced Israel's targeting of terrorist leaders as "symbolic genocide."

Neve Gordon, a BGU lecturer now serving as the chairman of political science at the university, turned out one pro-terror anti-Israel article after the next for anti-Semitic and neo-Nazi websites, denouncing Israel as a criminal entity. In one, he excoriated Israel for bombing the Islamic "university" in Gaza that was serving as the storage warehouse for the very same rockets being fired at his own university campus.

Oren Yiftachel, a professor of geography at Ben Gurion University who has made a career out of denouncing Israel for being an "apartheid" regime, cheered the firing of rockets at the children of Sderot and Netivot as the moral and just response of Palestinians "imprisoned" by Israel firing at their "jailers."

On the anti-Semitic web site Counterpunch, Ben Gurion University's Neve Gordon and Tel Aviv University's Yigal Bronner smear Israel using Hamas propaganda "statistics" verbatim

'This latest assault underscores that Israel, not unlike Hamas, readily resorts to violence and does not distinguish between civilians and combatants (only the weapons at Israel's disposal are much more lethal). No matter how many times the Israeli government tries to blame Hamas for the latest Palestinian civilian deaths it simply cannot explain away the body count, especially that of the children. In addition to the dead, 1,855 Palestinian children were wounded, and tens of thousands of others have likely been traumatised, many of them for life.....Israel's masters of war must be happy: the seeds of the next wars have certainly been sown.'

Tel Aviv University - Chaim Gans (School of Law) thinks Israel has a right to exist only if it destroys all the settlements and withdraws to the Green Line. That is his "defence" of Zionism!

Moreover, Israel must bring all of this to an end not only because the occupation of the West Bank and the inequality between Jews and Arabs in Israel are bad in and of themselves and corrupt Israel's present and future moral standing, but also because these practices render Israel's good faith in relying on the justice of Zionism's past questionable.

The Assault on Academic Freedom by Tel Aviv University Leftist Faculty Members

The anti-Zionist caucus of far-leftist professors at Tel Aviv University has a new cause. It is the suppression of academic freedom in the university's School of Law. The leftists are upset that the school is considering allowing the woman colonel who heads the Israeli Defense Forces international law division to lecture in its Law School. The far-leftists are opposed to that. Basically they are opposed to anyone teaching in the School of Law who is not a far-leftist anti-Zionist like them.

Bar Ilan University - Professor Yafa Zilbershatz - Even at Bar Ilan there are anti-Israel extremists working for the enemy

Professor Yafa Zilbershatz of Bar Ilan University said in an interview with Israel’s Channel 7, that in view of the legal situation in Europe, Israel’s acts in Gaza can be considered war crimes in that continent, and even “rank-and-file soldiers” may be prosecuted. The actions of the IDF in Gaza are likely to be considered war crimes in the USA as well. Currently, a private suit is now being conducted in a US federal court against Avi Dichter, the former head of the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet – Shabak) for bombing innocent civilians in Gaza.

Prof. Zilbershatz’ cynical solution to the problem is to propose that the State of Israel apply pressure on European countries to change their laws. It is shocking that Professor Zilbershatz blames other countries for having laws that apply the doctrine of universal jurisdiction. Attorney Leibowitz and Journalist Elam propose a solution to this problem that is the only lawful, realistic and ethical solution: refuse to commit war crimes.

Anat Matar and Rachel Giora (Tel Aviv University), Kobi Snitz (Technion), and Jeff Halper (Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions) join an American Petition to President Obama to stop supporting Israel; call for the termination the Jewish State of Israel

Also among the charges to which these Israeli Academics signed are:

calling Israel an apartheid regime;
claiming ethnic cleansing;
protesting the disproportionate use of excessive force;
calling all of the above crimes against humanity; and
supplying the justification for terrorism

'Public figures as diverse as Bishop Desmond Tutu and President Jimmy Carter have recognized that Israel too maintains an apartheid regime, in practice if not in name. South Africa, now a functioning multi-racial democracy, was a white state for a white people. Israel is a Jewish state for a Jewish people.'

Ben Gurion University - Lev Grinberg’s (Dept of Sociology) “Symbolic Genocide” is nothing more than reversal of culpability - Critique of the original claim

Despite Grinberg’s carefully formulated language, the term “symbolic genocide”, represents a false accusation. The main reason why it lacks merit is that the Palestinians target Israeli civilians, while, in the exercise of its legitimate right of self-defense, Israel does not target Palestinian civilians. One may observe that Grinberg has actually reversed the role of the criminal and the victim, portraying Israeli society as sick and attributing to it genocidal intent which does not exist, but which, on the contrary, may be clearly identified on the other side. During the Cold War, Soviet propagandists first developed this technique which has later become known as “the moral inversion of terms” or the “reversal of culpability”.

Dr. Dalit Baum and the Academic Lesbians for Jihad

Back in Israel these days, Baum is teaching (if that is the right word) at the "Community School for Women," a lesbian feminist "school" she helped found. Baum, a loudly self-proclaimed lesbian, has managed to connect her anti-Israel animus to support for the greatest homophobes and persecutors of homosexuals in the world, the Arab Islamofascists and the Muslim states. There homosexuality is often a capital offense. She is a leading member of a group calling itself "QUIT," which stands for "Queers Undermining Israeli Terrorism," a homosexual anti-Israel anarchist/Marxist group set up to demonize Jews and Israelis while excusing Arab homophobia and persecution of homosexuals. Dalit Baum embraces and supports the very same people who would kill her for being gay!! Perhaps that explains why she has never ventured into any Muslim country to preach her ideas.

Ben Gurion University - Lev Grinberg (Dept of Sociology), the guy who claims that targeting terrorist leaders is "symbolic genocide", claims the Hamas are the real Maccabis fighting the evil empire:

If indeed there is a struggle here of the weak against an occupying empire, it is the struggle of Hamas against Israel, not the other way around. Our self-image as the weak victim is utterly surreal and trapped in the mythology of the Jews as the ultimate victims, regardless of reality....The firing of missiles by the prisoners in protest against their starvation was interpreted as aggression, while their oppression by their jailers was interpreted as self-defense.'

University of East London - Yosefa Loshitzky (Dept. of Film Studies) claims that Operation "Cast Lead" is a victory of "disinformation" and "lies" by Israeli hasbara (public relations)

The cynicism embedded in the name, selected for what Ari Shavit, one of Israel's most celebrated commentators, called "an intelligent, impressive operation," is symptomatic to the cold, meticulous and calculated cruelty with which this attack was "designed," "executed" and "marketed" to the world. As the perpetrators themselves proudly boast, Operation Cast Lead is not only a great military victory but also a success story of Israeli hasbara (meaning in Hebrew, explanation, but practically referring to misinformation, spin and lies).

Ben Gurion University - Oren Yiftachel (Dept. of  Geography) promotes the claims of the refugee expulsion; alleges a conspiracy over Gaza history

If so, the current invasion into Gaza is not just an operation to halt the rockets, a pre-election effort to improve political profiles or an attempt to rehabilitate Israeli deterrence. The invasion is not just another attempt to ‘make order’ for others and bring down the elected Hamas government, or an imperial (Israeli-American) effort to control the Muslim populace by increasingly violent means. The current invasion is of course all of the above. But it is also the continuation of a long-lived strategy to deny, erase and smash any mention of this place’s history over recent generations. Almost everyone – politicians, artists, the media, university researchers and intellectuals have joined in this erasure project.

So, against the erasure efforts, let us remind ourselves: the Gaza strip was formed as a geographical entity after the 1948 war, when about 150,000 Palestinian Arabs fled or were expelled to it from what is today south-western Israel.

Avi Shlaim: This is Israeli propaganda, and it is a pack of lies.

University of Exeter - Ilan Pappe (Dept. of Political Science) justifies Hamas kassam missile war crimes; hangs the war crime “albatross” on Israel’s neck

Between 1967 and 2005, Gaza’s land and water were plundered by Jewish settlers in Gush Katif at the expense of the local population. The price of peace and security for the Palestinians there was to give themselves up to imprisonment and colonisation. Since 2000, Gazans have chosen instead to resist in greater numbers and with greater force. It was not the kind of resistance the West approves of: it was Islamic and military. Its hallmark was the use of primitive Qassam rockets, which at first were fired mainly at the settlers in Katif. The presence of the settlers, however, made it hard for the Israeli army to retaliate with the brutality it uses against purely Palestinian targets. So the settlers were removed, not as part of a unilateral peace process as many argued at the time (to the point of suggesting that Ariel Sharon be awarded the Nobel peace prize), but rather to facilitate any subsequent military action against the Gaza Strip and to consolidate control of the West Bank. … Israel justifies its conduct in Gaza as a part of the fight against terrorism, although it has itself violated every international law of war.

Ben Gurion University - Haim Yacobi (Dept of Politics & Bimkom Board Member) and Prof. Zvi Bentwich lead an Israeli call to stop the "disproportionate harm" and investigate "grave violations" by the military

[You may recall that just before the US and its allies invaded Iraq to topple Saddam, a group of more than 500 Israeli "academics" disseminated a petition all over the world in which they announced that the moment the first GI stepped foot in Iraq Israel was planning to conduct Nazi-like genocidal atrocities against Arabs. The GIs arrived and no mass murders of Arabs took place. Not a single one of those 500+ faculty members then issued an apology. Several explained that Israel really WAS planning to conduct a genocide but was scared off from doing so thanks to their petition.

Well, now a smaller number of similar moonbats, including some of the usual Israeli academics for Hamas, are back, with a new petition. It is being promoting by a gaggle of treasonous pro-terror leftist groups, led by Uri Avnery, Israel's Lord Haw-Haw:]

Tel Aviv University – Ran HaCohen's (Dept of Comparative Literature) continues to serve as Hamas' Mouthpiece

When I talk of ignorance, I do not mean that Israelis do not know there is occupation. They have known that for three-and-a-half decades, and their ideology has enabled them to live with it -- more (on the Right) or less (on the Left) comfortably. But the current phase of occupation differs from its former stages in the intensified use of disinformation and state-controlled ignorance. And so, while Israelis generally believe that "it must be quite terrible over there," very few of them know which Palestinian towns are under siege or closure at a given time, and what is the difference between the two. They do not know of villages locked behind a fence and a closed gate. They hardly know where the so-called "Separation Fence" is erected, and what it means for the Palestinians. Israelis have no idea how long it would take for a Palestinian to get from Ramallah to Bethlehem, and whether he is allowed to. And they definitely do not know that when the army is reported to remove a permanent checkpoint somewhere in the occupied Palestinian territories it is replaced by an even worse temporary checkpoint. Obviously, all this has immediate impact on the question "who is to blame" for the violence, which translates directly into political support.

Ben Gurion University – Neve Gordon (Dept of Political Science) gets indignant over arrests of Leftist Protesters [its good enough for the Settlers but its “intimidation” when applied to Leftists]

NEVE GORDON: I have two comments to make, one related to protest in media. 700 Israelis have been arrested since this war began, because they protested this war. This has not made it to an international media, and it’s an act of intimidation by the state against those who protest the war.

British Academics call for Israel to lose; and trust in “justice and peaceful coexistence” of seventy years ago

The intellectuals, among them Palestinians as well as Israel-born academics Professors Haim Beresheet and Ilan Pappe, wrote: “Israel must lose,” and “We must do what we can to stop Israel from winning its war. Israel must accept that its security depends on justice and peaceful coexistence with its neighbors, and not upon the criminal use of force.”

University of Haifa - Yuval Yonay (Dept. of Sociology) writing on the Segel-Plus list on 18 January 2009, endorses the smears of Israel as a Nazi country made by anti-Semitic British Member of Parliament. Yonay writes:

'He also mentioned that an Israeli spokeman [sic] replied that many of the Palestinian victims (800 at the time, climbing to 1245 as of this morning) were militants "was the reply of the Nazi" and added: "I suppose the Jews fighting for their lives in the Warsaw ghetto could have been dismissed as militants."

Ben Gurion University – Neve Gordon (Dept of Political Science) continues his PR campaign on behalf of the Hamas on the anti-Semitic pro-terror Counterpunch web site; divides Jerusalem:

'Regardless of how lethal Israel's military attacks are now, the idea is to intimidate the Palestinian population by underscoring that the violence can always become more deadly and brutal. This guarantees that violence, both when it is and when it is not deployed, remains an ever-looming threat.

'The message to the Israelis is a moral one. The subtext is that the Israeli military could indiscriminately unleash its vast arsenal of violence, but chooses not to, because its forces, unlike Hamas, respect human life.

'This latter claim appears to have considerable resonance among Israelis, and, yet, it is based on a moral fallacy. The fact that one could be more brutal but chooses to use restraint does not in any way entail that one is moral.... Ultimately, the moral claims the Israeli government uses to support its actions during this war are empty. They actually reveal Israel's unwillingness to confront the original source of the current violence, which is not Hamas, but rather the occupation of the Gaza Strip, West Bank and East Jerusalem.'

Ben Gurion University - Oren Yiftachel (Dept. of  Geography) calls Israel an apartheid state and repeats claims of “ethnic cleansing” as justification for the Hamas shelling from Gaza

I have termed this process "creeping apartheid" — an undeclared yet powerful political order which creates vastly unequal forms of citizenship under one ruling power. Rights under such regimes are determined by a combination of ethnic affiliation and place of birth. This cannot be illustrated more vividly than by noting the differences in mobility and property rights — Jews are free to move and purchase land in almost the entire area under Israeli control, while Palestinians are limited to separated enclaves — Gazans in Gaza only, Jerusalemites only in Jerusalem and so on.

University of Haifa - Tenured Faculty comes out against flying the Israeli flag at the University

This is going to sound like another Plaut spoof, but I am afraid the following story is entirely for real. It involves the outpouring of anguished calls by faculty members at the University of Haifa NOT to have the Israeli flag flying on campus! ... The response to the gesture by leftist faculty members at the University of Haifa was boisterous and hostile. How dare the university have Israeli flags waving on campus! It is offensive and insensitive to Arabs!

Ben Gurion University – Neve Gordon (Dept of Political Science) defends the rights of the Hamas to bomb Israel, because occupation itself is a worse form of violence, and never mind that Gaza was relieved from occupation years ago

NEVE GORDON: ... First of all, I agree with the idea of a basic right to self-defense. And the right to self-defense is a right to self-defense from violence. We have to understand that the occupation itself is violence. It’s an act of violence. Putting people in a prison, in a prison of one million and a half million people and keeping them there for years on end without basic foodstuff, without allowing them to enter and exit when they will, is an act of violence. Without electricity, without clean water, it’s all an act of violence. And these people are resisting. I am against the way they’re resisting, but we have to look at their violence versus our violence.

About between ten and twenty people, Israelis, have died from rockets in the eight years that rockets have been launched from the Gaza Strip into Israel. During the same amount of time, 4,000 Israelis have died from car accidents. And yet, we don’t see an outrage against the terrorism on the streets in Israel. But from these twenty people, we’re allowed to enter into the Gaza Strip and bomb them from the air into their cage and kill 275 children.

Hebrew University - Shmuel Amir (Dept of Economics) justifies the war crimes perpetrated by Hamas; focuses on "disproportionate response"

Two sides are needed in order for there to be a war, as we all know; but here in Gaza, are there two sides to the bombing of Gaza from the air? On one side is there not an air force equipped with the best aircraft provided by its “friend”, the USA, while on the other side are completely defenceless people facing heavy bombardment that rains down on them from the heavens? Is there such a thing as a war in which only one side is fighting? Therefore the combat that Israeli Defence Minister Barak announced is not a war but a hunt! A hunt for humans who lack the minimal means to resist and who are slaughtered from the air. A hunt for sitting ducks.

A Precis of Israeli Violations in the period

'The year 2008 is considered as the bloodiest. At the end of 2008, Israel has launched a wide genocide war against the Palestinian Gazans; due to that hundreds are killed, thousands are injured, and hundreds of the Palestinian houses, mosques, institutions and health care centers are demolished. Israel has been violating the International humanitarian law and committing war crimes.

'Israel is using Dense Inert Metal Explosives (DIME), depleted uranium weapons, bombs with cluster ammunition and phosphorous bombs; hundreds of innocent palestinian citizens are killed by these weapons, the majority of them are women, children and worshipers. Israel has employed it's [sic] full-fledged arsenal to attack Palestinian populated areas, ambulances, medics, universities, mosques, and schools.'

Tel Aviv University - Anat Biletzki (Dept of Philosophy) invents Reality with Statistics

A group of British academic anti-Semites is circulating an electronic leaflet in which they explain that insists that 8000 Hamas rockets landing on Israeli civilians just do not count, because they are just symbolic protests and do not do very much damage. Therefore it is only Israeli retaliation that counts as the launching of war. Translation: dead Jews do not count because Jewish lives have no value and Jews deserve to be sent to concentration camps.

Letter to the Hebrew University from Dr. Wm Dickerman

From: William Dickerman
Sent: Monday, December 29, 2008 10:10 PM
To: stroums@huji.ac.il; Sarah.Stroumsa@huji.ac.il; stroums@vms.huji.ac.il; Menachem.Magidor@huji.ac.il; menachem@math.huji.ac.il; hupres@cc.huji.ac.il; Info@afhu.org

Subject: Fire the anti-Semitic, traitorous professors at Hebrew U

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It grieves me terribly, as a Jew, an alum of Hebrew U's foreign students program (1971-72), and as a sentient human being with the ability to reason, that Hebrew U., that once great university, employs the likes of Nurit Peled-Elhanan and gives her a platform for her hateful, traitorous, libelous, dangerous rantings in support of the "poor Palestinians" who would murder her in a second if they could. I learned of this unspeakable calumny from Maariv, where Mr. Yemini exposes the anti-Semitism and betrayal for what it is.

It is nothing short of an outrage that people like Elhanan-Peled are employed using the funds of Israeli taxpayers, alumni, and overseas donors. (I was once not only a generous donor but also executive director of a young-leadership group for the American Friends in Los Angeles.) I demand, on behalf of the Jews who are dead and cannot speak for themselves, thanks to the murderers so encouraged and supported by such scum "professors", and on behalf of the living Jews who hope not to meet the fate that Peled-Elhanan apparently invites upon us, that the Hebrew University take action against the pro-terror anti-Semites on its faculty (of whom Elhanan-Peled is not the only one).

Hebrew U. will never see another dime of my or my family's money or other support as long as this kind of outrage persists. On the contrary, it will become my mission to expose the university's inexplicable, unexcusable giving aid and comfort to the enemy that, given half a chance to sneak a bomb onto campus, would gladly incinerate all of you along with the institution--as, indeed, they did somewhat successfully on Har Hatzofim some years back.

For shame, for shame.

Ben Gurion University – Neve Gordon (Dept of Political Science) says its ok for Hamas' development of weapons and explosives at Islamic University to continued unimpeded

Notwithstanding the importance of the Islamic University, Israel has tried to justify the bombing. An army spokeswoman told The Chronicle that the targeted buildings were used as “a research and development center for Hamas weapons, including Qassam rockets. … One of the structures struck housed explosives laboratories that were an inseparable part of Hamas’s research-and-development program, as well as places that served as storage facilities for the organization. The development of these weapons took place under the auspices of senior lecturers who are activists in Hamas.” Islamic University officials deny the Israeli allegations. Yet even if there is some merit in them, it is common knowledge that practically all major American and Israeli universities are engaged in research and development of military applications and receive money from the Pentagon and defense corporations. Weapon development and even manufacturing have, unfortunately, become major projects at universities worldwide - a fact that does not justify bombing them.

Israeli Academics in UK lead a call to boycott Israel; compare Gaza to Warsaw Ghetto and Israel to apartheid

We the undersigned are all of Jewish origin. When we see the dead and bloodied bodies of young children, the cutting off of water, electricity and food, we are reminded of the siege of the Warsaw Ghetto. When Dov Weisglass, an adviser to the Israeli prime minister, Ehud Olmert, talked of putting Gazans "on a diet" and the deputy defence minister, Matan Vilnai, talked about the Palestinians experiencing "a bigger shoah" (holocaust), this reminds us of Governor General Hans Frank in Nazi-occupied Poland, who spoke of "death by hunger".

The real reason for the attack on Gaza is that Israel is only willing to deal with Palestinian quislings. The main crime of Hamas is not terrorism but its refusal to accept becoming a pawn in the hands of the Israeli occupation regime in Palestine.

The decision last month by the EU council to upgrade relations with Israel, without any specific conditions on human rights, has encouraged further Israeli aggression. The time for appeasing Israel is long past. As a first step, Britain must withdraw the British ambassador to Israel and, as with apartheid South Africa, embark on a programme of boycott, divestment and sanctions.

University of Haifa - Post-Zionist Uri Bar-Yosef (Dept of International Relations) thinks that since the Golan is not an air-tight defense, there is no reason why it should not be handed over to Syria

'According to the understandings that have already been reached with the Syrians during previous talks, the area between Damascus and the border with Israel would be demilitarized on the basis of the Sinai model in the peace agreement with Egypt. In that situation, no Israeli target would be in the range of Syrian artillery.'

Ben Gurion University - Neve Gordon's (Dept of Political Science) anti-Israel ravings continues to irritate more University Donors and Fund Raisers

President Rivka Carmi, Ben Gurion University:

It is astounding the Dr. Gordon can continue in his position with your university when he publicly expresses fervent anti-Israel sentiments. No matter the position you state regarding the position of your University, his statements undermine your own. Your support of his right to free speech is actually an endorsement of hate speech that damages the image of Ben Gurion University. Perhaps the bombing of the Islamic University robs him of a future platform from which he can support the anti-Israel fervor of their own students. There can be no intellectual benefit for Jewish students who attend Ben Gurion University and are confronted by Dr. Gordon's hate speech from his classroom podium. Why would Ben Gurion University expect donors to pay for him to continue undermining the position of Israel in the current war with Hamas in Gaza? I hope you will reconsider your hiring criteria for professors and terminate Dr. Gordon's position as soon as possible before he can do more damage to the minds of students and the image of your outstanding University.

Sincerely,
Barbara Moretsky, Michigan, USA

 

Other - Sapir Academic College - Sapir President Zeev Tzahor Lobbying for "Talks" with the Hamas:

Zeev Tzahor is the President of Sapir College, supposedly a historian of Israeli history. Sapir College is located in Sderot and his been hit repeatedly by Hamas shells. At least one Sapir student has been murdered (see here). Zeev Tzahor is also an academic for capitulation and appeasement. He was on the TV this evening (January 03, 2009) urging Israel to desist from attacking Gaza and to enter negotiations with the Hamas. Just what does he think Israel can obtain from such negotiations? At most, a meaningless, empty piece of paper that the Hamas will violate before the ink is dry. Not to worry, Tzahor is convinced. If that happens Israel can call a policeman to complain or file a protest!

Sapir College has been in the news in recent years in part because of its employing an Arab faculty member who refused to allow an Israeli reserve soldier in uniform and a woman wearing a Jewish star into his class. Tzahor back then came out against the Arab, but we suspect it was to gather some credibility so that he can promote his Peace Now agenda.

 

University of Exeter - Ilan Pappe (Dept. of Political Science) once again explains why Israel needs to be exterminated

Another name for this ideology is Zionism and an international rebuke for Zionism, not just for particular Israeli policies, is the only way of countering this self-righteousness. We have to try and explain not only to the world, but also to the Israelis themselves, that Zionism is an ideology that endorses ethnic cleansing, occupation and now massive massacres. What is needed now is not just a condemnation of the present massacre but also delegitimization of the ideology that produced that policy and justifies it morally and politically. Let us hope that significant voices in the world will tell the Jewish state that this ideology and the overall conduct of the state are intolerable and unacceptable and as long as they persist, Israel will be boycotted and subject to sanctions.

'Once again we face a leadership that knows one solution only: WAR....You cannot put an end to injustice with military power and destruction.

Oxford University – Avi Shlaim (Dept. of History) declares that Israel and the US are "gangster states" over present Gaza action

The only way to make sense of Israel's senseless war in Gaza is through understanding the historical context. Establishing the state of Israel in May 1948 involved a monumental injustice to the Palestinians. British officials bitterly resented American partisanship on behalf of the infant state. On 2 June 1948, Sir John Troutbeck wrote to the foreign secretary, Ernest Bevin, that the Americans were responsible for the creation of a gangster state headed by "an utterly unscrupulous set of leaders". I used to think that this judgment was too harsh but Israel's vicious assault on the people of Gaza, and the Bush administration's complicity in this assault, have reopened the question.

Hebrew University - Victoria Buch (Dept of Physical Chemistry) thinks Israel's real Crime is in its Existence

'I arrived in Israel 40 years ago. It took me many years to understand that the very existence of my country, as it is today, is based on an ongoing ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. The project started many years ago. Its seed can be traced to the basic fallacy of the Zionist movement, which set out to establish a Jewish-national state in a location already inhabited by another nation. Under these conditions, one has, at most, a moral right to strive for a bi-national state; establishing a national state implies, more or less by definition, ethnic cleansing of the previous inhabitants....'

Ben Gurion University - The latest anti-Israel diatribe by Neve Gordon (Dept of Political Science) in the anti-Semitic magazine "The Nation"

There is something extremely cynical about how Israel explains its use of humanitarian assistance, and yet such unadulterated explanations actually help uncover an important facet of postmodern warfare. Not unlike raising animals for slaughter on a farm, the Israeli government maintains that it is providing Palestinians with assistance so that it can have a free hand in attacking them. And just as Israel provides basic foodstuff to Palestinians while it continues shooting them, it informs Palestinians--by phone, no less--that they must evacuate their homes before F-16 fighter jets begin bombing them.

Southhampton University - Oren Ben-Dor (Dept. of Law) rejects the right of the Jewish State of Israel to exist

Accepting the right of Israel to securely exist as a Jewish state has now become the bench mark for political moderation.  Obama is already singing the song. Egalitarian anti-Zionists who challenge that right readily fail the test.  This anti-Zionist voice is inclusive and moderate. It insists that injustices to Palestinians stem from the very premise of statehood that Israel is based on.  Injustices to Palestinians encompass the whole of historic Palestine in a way which cannot be partitioned so that they become visible only in the territories, including Gaza, which Israel occupied in 1967.  Let us, then, break the idle chatter about self-defence that merely levels “criticisms” against Israel but by that legitimises it: the origin of the violence in Gaza is intimately linked to the manner the Israeli state came into being and to the continuing toleration of the apartheid premise at its very essence.  Israel should not be “reformed” or “condemned” but replaced with a single egalitarian structure over all historic Palestine.

  • we will not go on holiday to Israel;

  • we will research which brands of computer contain Israeli-designed and manufactured components, make the information public, and and press all computer manufacturers to end research partnerships with Israel;

  • we will boycott Israeli films, theatre companies, dance groups and orchestras, and make known our objections to the management of theatres and cinemas;

Tel Aviv University - Moshe Zuckerman's (Dept. of History) anti-Israel rhetoric gets quoted by the traitor and spy Azmi Bishara

Dr. Moshe Zuckerman of Tel-Aviv University provided an interesting answer to these questions, by saying, "Zionism always wanted to create an "Israeli" identity, however the realities constantly challenges this aspiration and contradicts it and regardless of how hard Zionism tries to fabricate "Israeli" identity and by force, the outcome is that the "Israeli" identity does not exist. Dr. Zuckerman continued by saying, "There has never been a unique culture and civilization that is different than the culture of the local communities that they lived in. In other words, the culture of the Jews who lived among the Arab people was a reflection of the Arab culture, as the culture of German Jews reflected the German culture, and so on."

In other words Dr. Zuckerman recognizes the constituents for Nation building that Jews in general lack. Jews are merely a religious group. They have no common language, no common history, no common culture, no common territory and no common economical system to form a Nation that might be entitled for the right of self-determination. Yet, Mr. Bishara accepts the Zionist-fabricated "Israeli culture" as sufficient constituent for forming a Jewish state on Palestinian stolen land. So, it could very well be that Mr. Bishara is more Zionist than Dr. Zuckerman. Most importantly, Mr. Bishara did not bring the issue of culture and heritage simply out of ignorance, because he has prepared the Arab masses to accept the Zionist existence in Arabia, while preparing the Zionist masses for accepting the Arabs within 1948 OP (Occupied Palestine) as a cultural/National minority, and to grant them culture autonomy, as he calls it. And, what is worse is that Mr. Bishara prepares the Arabs within 1948 OP to assimilate and to integrate in the "Israeli" society, which is a contradiction to his doctrine of recognizing the Arabs as a "National minority."

Yossi Amitay of Ben-Gurion University does the Shimmy-Dhimmi Cocoa Pop

Amitay has called openly for divestment and boycotts against Israel, the country that pays his salary at Ben Gurion University. He has called for international involvement to force militarily or otherwise Israelis and Jews in Judea and Samaria from their homes and objected to the IDF fighting terrorism as not leading to a solution. ... Something else though that Amitay does not consider in his analysis of Arab suffering and humiliation is that the anti-Israel, anti-Zionist carryings-on by the Arabs are also a business, and a big business it is. Every “Palestinian” Arab created by the Arab League after 1948 was forced to tithe to Yasser Arafat and the PLO. This included even so-called “refugees” who were no longer refugees. The Arabs, whose ancestors were from “Palestine” in Kuwait, for example, were given Palestinian passports and had their incomes deducted to pay Arafat regularly, who parlayed those funds into being the fifth richest man in the world at the time of his death. The Palestinians are the biggest moneymaking scam in the history of the world.

Tel Aviv University - Ran HaCohen's (Dept of Comparative Literature) attacks Ben Dror Yemini and Maariv Newspaper

But Taub's demagoguery fades compared to Ben-Dror Yemini's (an Israeli Daniel Pipes) in Ma'ariv. In a column titled "The Most Justified Offensive Ever" (miraculously, the very words used by his Ha'aretz twin Ari Shavit for the Lebanon War just two years ago), Yemini draws a straight line from Hitler to Hamas (no coincidence they both start with an H, just like Hezbollah, Saddam Hussein, and Hemorrhoids), and explains that "Since the Nazi ideology […], no movement has been as dangerous to world peace as political Islam." My apologies for quoting this trash; we need an Israeli demagogue to instrumentalize the Holocaust, and Yemini was born for such dirty jobs.

(Israel's policy is) 'The damage to the civil population should be maximized, because the worse the humanitarian crisis is, the better and the sooner the operation would end. It's the same major-general, by the way, who just a year ago caused outrage by urging the Israeli government to negotiate directly with Hamas. Do not to look for consistency, integrity, or intelligence where war criminals are involved.'

'The assault on Gaza is also being carried out to help Kadima and Labour defeat Likud and its leader Binyamin Netanyahu, who is currently ahead in the polls....Yet, the government is actively misleading the public, since Israel could have put an end to the rockets a long time ago. Indeed, there was relative quiet during the six-months truce with Hamas, a quiet that was broken most often as a reaction to Israeli violence: that is, following the extra-judicial execution of a militant or the imposition of a total blockade which prevented basic goods, like food stuff and medicine, from entering the Gaza Strip. Rather than continuing the truce, the Israeli government has once again chosen to adopt strategies of violence that are tragically akin to the ones deployed by Hamas; only, the Israeli ones are much more lethal. If the Israeli government really cared about its citizens and the country's long term ability to sustain itself in the Middle East, it would abandon the use of violence and talk with its enemies.'

'Not all these facts were known to those that sanctified the Jewish national concept when they turned Bar Kochva into the idol of the Zionist renaissance, and even if they had their doubts about his personality, they closed their eyes, because the ancient, heroic rebel sells Zionism very well. They sought to fan the flames of the tribal bonfire with ethnocentrism, and to draw from Jewish mythology a fighter of the kind that challenged the greatest superpower of ancient times, and by his power-driven, crude, insolent and selfish light to educate the children of Israel to emulate him. They seemed to be advocating: Fight the bad guys (the nations of the world, the Turks, the British, the Arabs) to win what you seek, and damn the price.  That is how Bar Kochva, among the other myths and symbols, was turned into yet another quasi-militaristic element that elevates any physical action to attain "sacred" goals.  Sadly, Bar Kochva became a brand name, a national legend, which served national-Zionist goals. He was internalized and absorbed into the national bloodstream, took on the same sanctity as the other myths - and anyone that tries to pose questions about the commander of the revolt, his character and path, is perceived as a saboteur, a vandal.'

Tel Aviv University - Shlomo Sand's Revisionist Pseudo-History of the Jewish People

Sand describes his own venture into historic revisionism as an exploration in historiography, and notes: "My initial intention was to take certain kinds of modern historiographic materials and examine how they invented the 'figment' of the Jewish people. ... Sand, who was once active in the Israeli splinter Maoist group Matzpen, also wanted to learn about stories of conversions to Judaism and then to connect those strands into a theory that claimed that all Jews everywhere are the descendants of converts. That being the case, Jewish peoplehood must itself be a fabrication, one invented in 19th century Germany, notably contemporaneous with the antecedents of Nazism. For Sand this is not a coincidence, because then Zionism can be shown to be similar to Nazism, is proven illegitimate, and so Israel should not exist at all. This is quite a novel way to rewrite history.

The two-state solution entrenches and formalizes a policy of unequal separation on a land that has become ever more integrated territorially and economically. All the international efforts to implement a two-state solution cannot conceal the fact that a Palestinian state is not viable, and that Palestinian and Israeli Jewish independence in separate states cannot resolve fundamental injustices, the acknowledgment and redress of which are at the core of any just solution. ...

Oxford University – Avi Shlaim (Dept. of History) in video conference reveals “deep” knowledge of Israeli politics, calls PM Ehud Olmert “embodiment of the right-wing Zionist dream” and quotes Karl Marx while calling for an end to “occupation”

In his talk, entitled "Obsession with Territory Post-1967," Shlaim blasts the settlements, which he says have turned Israel into an apartheid state, as the primary source of failure for peace efforts with the Palestinians.

Shlaim believes Zionism was derailed from its course after the Six-Day war, when its universalist principles were replaced with "religious messianism and secular nationalism." Israel must give up land, he says, not just as a concession to the Palestinians, but because "a people that oppresses another cannot itself remain free."

The "usual" Israeli Academics sign a call sponsored by bicycle riders for the EU to suspend trade with Israel

What the Peace Cycle has witnessed illustrates the abuses of human rights that at different times over many years have been judged to be illegal by international courts across the world. Yet the EU does nothing visible to bring Israel to account. Whilst this abuse goes on, the EU-Israel Association Agreement has allowed trade with Israel to flourish, with the addition of the EU-Israel Action Plan in 2005-2008 that has allowed for even closer partnerships to develop.

We call for an immediate suspension of the EU-Israel Association Agreement and any further trade between Israel and EU Member States in protest against Israel's continued violation of human rights of the Palestinian people.

It is true, unfortunately, that the local violence inflicted on Palestinian women by the government of Israel and the Israeli army, has expanded around the globe, In fact, state violence and army violence, individual and collective violence, are the lot of Muslim women today, not only in Palestine but wherever the enlightened western world is setting its big imperialistic foot. It is violence which is hardly ever addressed and which is half-heartedly condoned by most people in Europe and in the USA.

University of Haifa - Avraham Oz (Dept of Comparative Literature) applauds role in charges of fictitious "War Crimes" brought against IDF Officers.
Also laments the recent transparency to previously "privileged secrecy of proceedings" that allows for "administrators to get rid of faculty".

This is my country:
Where conscientious citizens objecting to atrocities perpetrated in their name by generals, officers, and soldiers in active service and reserves, are pursuing their bringing to international justice for war crimes, since the Israeli justice system shuns its moral obligations. And where such citizens are threatened by a senior Likud MP Steinitz (a former colleague at my university - where else?) who attempts to legislate a "treason law," remindful of dark ages, whereby such conscientious citizens will be prosecuted and serve jail for their initiative.

This is my country:
Where a university, where classes on democracy are given, is opening a military program of studies for intelligence cadets to study on campus in uniform, appropriating a whole section of the students dormitories (far from answering the needs of Arab and needed Jewish students), to become military quarters of sorts (you guessed right, my own university); while still not recognizing the elected Arab students committee (representing about 20% of the students), nor the demand to put signs in Arabic (an official language in Israel) on campus, closing down its theatre for mounting plays in Arabic, or forbidding a Christmas tree to be placed near a HANUKKA lamp while the two religious holidays concur; and rather, using its dwindling budget to hiring private law firms to prepare the legal grounds why NOT to put such signs in Arabic, or to dispute a recent court ruling preferring transparency to privileged secrecy of proceedings (which grant immunity to administrators to get rid of faculty far from the public eye).

Tel Aviv University - Carlo Strenger (Dept of Psychology) rewrites history

"We Jews demand of the world never to forget that 6 million of us were killed in the Holocaust. We would do well not to forget that some 6 million black Africans died during the long history of the slave trade, one of the most shameful chapters in the history of humanity.... Obama's election is a triumph of universalism over chauvinism."

Tel Aviv University - Ran HaCohen's (Dept of Comparative Literature) article serves basis for new call for economic boycott

It is about mentioning the fact that Israel is breaching each and every principle of "free market" economy in the OT – and this is what the OECD is supposed to promote.

It was the Israeli academic Ran HaCohen from Tel Aviv University who succinctly pointed to this argument in his article Keep Israel out of elite economic club The Electronic Intifada, 17 June 2008

Hebrew University - Eyal Ben-Ari arrested for complaints of "sexual harassment"

The "Non-Rape as Racism" thesis was co-supervised by one Eyal Ben-Ari, a Hebrew University professor of sociology.
Three former students have filed police complaints of sexual harassment against Professor Eyal Ben-Ari. As of Monday, the three women testified that Ben-Ari's made them indecent proposals. Police say that in the coming days they expect the women to add additional charges to the file.

Stalin’s anti-Semitism and hatred of Israel lives on as strong as ever at the University of London: Professor Moshe Machover

Machover also advocates for an unconditional right of return of Arabs, but Jews, you see, never had a right of return and are just “settlers” (as usual he refers to the Territories when convenient, but means all of Israel). Meanwhile, three generations of Sabras do no not even have a right to call themselves Israelis according to Machover. To him, they are merely “Hebrews” who have illegally settled on Arab land as an example of “colonialism” in the worst sense, supported by the Western “imperialist” powers. The Muslim umma and pan-Arab nationalists he mentions are not imperialists or colonialists, you see, only Jews who seek national determination are such... What he purposely leaves out is that whereas the British were the colonial power in Palestine prior to 1948, the Jews were not a colonial power also, even if such a description fits well with his communist ideology. The British repaid the Jewish Legion who fought the Turks on the Allied side the same as they repaid today’s economic and terrorist curse to the world, the Saudis, for doing the same. Both groups were promised their own country if they fought and died against the Central Powers. Ultimately, the Brits screwed the Jews and gave half of what was to be Israel to another tribe from the Arabian Peninsula, the Hashemites, that became Jordan and Iraq. Contrary to being colonists of Arab land, the Jews were under the yoke of British colonialism and fought the British as well as the Arabs until the UN decision to create Israel in 1948. Prior to 1948, Jews in Israel fought both the Arabs and the British to have their own independence despite British duplicity with the Arabs against the Jews.

Israeli Academic Extremists Outside Israel - Dorit Namaan (Queen’s University) Leads a Panel of Israeli Academic Traitors that Call for the Dissolution of Israel as a Jewish State

And there’s Dorit Namaan of Queen’s University itself, whose opuses include the article “Brides of Palestine/Angels of Death: Media, Gender and Performance in the Case of the Palestinian Female Suicide Bomber” and a book in progress “on the visual representation of Palestinian and Israeli women fighters” (let’s see, that will probably discern equivalencies between female members of the Israel Defense Forces and Palestinian women who blow up pizza parlors). And also Elia Zureik of Queen’s University, who in 2000 called in a Los Angeles Times op-ed for…the Palestinian right of return.

Ben Gurion University - Neve Gordon (Dept. of Political Science) appointed to Department Head despite anti-Israel "research"

He barricaded himself with Arafat during the siege of Ramallah, he has his articles posted on Holocaust denial websites, he thinks Israel is a pariah state, he distorted historical facts, he turned the classroom into a propaganda battlefield, he advocated a one-state solution, and yet, he was recently appointed as the head of Ben Gurion University's department of Politics and Government.

Other - Tel Hashomer - Raphael Walden participates in a-Dura fraud, produces “expert opinion” without examining patient and is based on medical report from October 2000

But there is one aspect of the case that has NOT been widely exposed. That is the collaboration by Prof. Raphael Walden with the French television station's fraud and cover-up. Walden is a far-leftist anti-Zionist medical doctor with specialty in surgery, at Tel Hashomer hospital. He is active in the pro-terror anti-Israel propaganda group "Doctors for Human Rights," a group once run by anti-Semite Neve Gordon and which does not believe that Jews should be entitled to any human rights. He is also the son-in-law of Shimon Peres and often described in the press as Shimon Peres' personal physician. He signs all the usual leftist proclamations . His email is Raphael.Walden@sheba.health.gov.il .

Ben-Dror Yemini this week described the role of Walden in the French forgery in his weekly column. Walden prepared a professional medical report that backed the lies and fabrications of the French TV station and the attempt to "prove" the Arab propaganda version of the a-Dura shooting, based on the injuries to a-Dura's father. Only problem is that the good doctor never examined the a-Dura father and based his expert conclusions on some paperwork he got from a Jordanian office. A different Israeli doctor who DID examine the poppa, Dr. Yehuda David, discovered that all the injuries the father was claiming to have suffered when his son was pretending to be shot were in fact injuries from at least 8 years earlier.

Ben Gurion University - Haim Yacobi (Dept of Politics & Bimkom Board Member) rants that the Acre Riots were a result of a national “intentional policy” to repress the 1948 “internal refugees” and ignores that the Acre Rioters were not from Acre

More on Bimkom’s Anti-Israel activities can be seen here

A significant portion of the Arab population in mixed cities within the Green Line (Israel's pre-1967 border) is comprised of internal refugees, who were disinherited from their lands following the establishment of Israel. Not only do they suffer from the trauma of displacement, but they are also socially and economically disenfranchised. This status is not coincidental, evolutional or neutral: It is the product of intentional policy, mostly implicit but occasionally explicit, operating according to ethno-national logic. Its main objective has and continues to be maintenance of the demographic dominance of the Jewish majority over the Arab minority in mixed cities.

Hebrew University - Nurit Peled-Elhanan (Dept. of Education) remains in the Denial Stage – hasn’t changed rhetoric in over a decade

Peled-Elhanan is a self-appointed 'mindguard' (self-appointed members who shield the group from dissenting information) whose educational mission is to nurture and protect the hateful and homicidal pathology of Arab children and further their horrific indoctrination, without thinking, without regard to her own daughter's memory, and with pernicious intent to cause harm to all Jewish children and Jews everywhere. She has had over 10 years to process the grief, rage, denial and all the other stages of the Kubler-Ross cycle of mourning. She has chosen instead to instill her unresolved hatred into yet another generation of Arabs and projecting that cowardly legacy onto my children and all Israeli children. She continues with impunity and the entitled sense of and exhilaration of invulnerability. Even since the start of the Arab dismemberment and killing spree starting about three years after her daughter's death, she refused to look at the reality. The thousand plus dead and thousands more maimed or scarred for life in the most bestial, savage and cold-blooded ways has no bearing on the callous rigidified code of the extremist-left. It's simply an ongoing proactive justification for the orgiastic Culture of Death orchestrated with the assistance of the "useful idiot" extremist-left.

Toaff should be ashamed at his collaboration with a jihadi web site, being used to spread his "research."  Bar-Ilan University should be ashamed to have employed such a person, because academic freedom should not be a cover for deception and lies against the Jewish people to hasten the destruction of their national homeland.

University of East London - Haim Bresheeth (Dept. of Cultural Studies) praises suicide bombers' "self-sacrifice" in Palestinian Al-Ahram Weekly

Israel has persuaded the Palestinians, quite efficiently, that there is no hope for them to live normally in the Middle East. They seem to have heeded this cruel and inhuman message, and some of them, seemingly many (and numbers are growing by the day as Israeli atrocities mount) are prepared to give their life in order to hurt the occupiers of their country. But then, this was always true. Nations around the globe have shown that self-sacrifice is an integral part of an independence struggle.

Hebrew University - Political scientist Zeev Sternhell denounces "Colonial Zionism"

'Now we also have colonial Zionism, based on ethnic and religious inequality, which considers itself the exclusive emissary of Jewish history. The Divine promise and not the natural rights of human beings to freedom, independence and self-government is, in its eyes, the one and only source of legitimacy for the return of the Jews to the Land of Israel. According to this viewpoint, the land belongs not only to living Jews, but to all the past generations and those yet unborn; therefore, members of the present generation have no right to share possession of the land with members of another nation....In Hebron a situation has been created that is a national disgrace, a genuine sin and crime: Apartheid, as legal scholar Boaz Okun wrote in the weekly Yedioth Ahronoth last week, is already here.'

Israeli Academic Extremists Outside Israel - Ilan Pappe (University of Exeter) and Gabi Piterberg (UCLA) Pose a Threat to Israel's Continued Existence According to Aryeh Green

The flyers presented a caricature of two Israeli soldiers beating a Palestinian man with clubs depicted as maps of Israel, one labeled "Palestine," the other "South Africa." The conference centered on themes of apartheid and Zionism, divestment and resistance. Ilan Pappe, a professor from Haifa University [presently of University of Exeter - editor] and advocate of a one-state solution and boycott of Israeli institutions, spoke on "Resisting Apartheid: Divestment and Solidarity" in a meeting chaired by Prof. Steven Rose, a leading advocate of the academic and cultural boycott of Israel. Another speaker was Prof. Gabi Piterberg of the University of California at Los Angeles, who spoke on "Zionism and Apartheid." In 2003 Piterberg, an Israeli anti-Zionist, signed a petition calling for divestment from Israel. ... Zionism in the twenty-first century will be defined by the struggle against those who question Israel's legitimacy to exist as a Jewish state. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Europe, which on the whole is about two decades "ahead" of America in accepting the anti-Semitic argument that Israel is a colonialist, illegitimate oppressor. This belief crosses social, economic, religious, and political boundaries and is not limited to the disputed territories of Judea and Samaria (the "West Bank"). With these attitudes now accepted among European youth, in ten years, or twenty at most, there may be no question among Europe's political and business elite as to Israel's original sin in its founding. This development would pose as much a strategic threat to Israel, the Jewish world, and the entire free world as Iranian missiles and the ascendancy of Hamas, Hizbullah, and other Islamofascist movements. Europe is already the leading economic power in the world and is challenging U.S. hegemony around the globe politically. The coming decade will decide how Europe views the Zionist experiment that is the state of Israel, as several of Europe's leaders of 2015 learn philosophy, history, politics, and religion at the feet of virulent anti-Semites.

Concordia University - Emeritus Professor Zalman Amit (Dept of Psychology)

But wait, there’s more on Zalman Amit than just the company he keeps and promotes. As mentioned, he feels that academic freedom in Israel has been threatened (no doubt by the likes of Isracampus.org) because false Arab inspired propaganda tales of Jews massacring Arabs en masse need to be accepted in the University sphere even when they did not happen. The case in point here is Amit’s defense of the PhD thesis fabricated by Teddy Katz, a history student at Haifa University, of a massacre of Arabs by Jews in 1948 in the nearby village of Tantura. Katz already testified on the stand when sued by Israeli war veterans for libel and defamation that he fabricated the deliberate killings. Further evidence revealed he’d been paid thousands of dollars by the PLO. But for Zalman Amit, it’s never-say-die as he tries to twist an abuse of academic freedom in the academy into a denial of academic freedom

According to the organization in Canada, Mothers Against Sexual Abuse (MASA), Zalman Amit was paid $25,000 by a wealthy father accused of sexually molesting his 9 year-old daughter to testify on behalf of the father. According to the MASA, Amit “...after meeting once with the child's mother for only 20 minutes, he shamelessly declared that she was psychotic and unfit mother because of her political stance in favor of the Palestinians’ cause. ... This unprofessional psychologist who screamed from the top of his lungs in the Court that he was a Zionist, that the mother was unfit because of her anti-Zionist stance, today pretends to be himself against Zionism and has joined a certain Palestine Solidarity Campaign.” [Palestine Solidarity is the alternate name for the ISM].

Tel Aviv University - The leftwing McCarthyism of Carlo Strenger (Dept of Psychology) who thinks all non-leftists are guilty of terrorism

The Sternhell Attack gave the Left an excuse to judge and sentence the Right without trial upon the front pages of the newspapers. Then Strenger – imitating Emile Zola – “accuses” Isracampus.org.il, among others, in order to cover up that the conviction of the Right – imitating Alfred Dreyfus – was based on false accusations and misrepresentation of justice.

'I accuse those Jews, inside Israel and outside, who run websites that track "dangerous left-wing intellectuals" in Israel. They call people like Zeev Sternhell "anti-Semitic," "self-hating Jews" and "enemies of Israel....For too long the Israeli Right has taken a forgiving attitude toward its 'wild weeds.' For too long it has used extremists to present its own views as acceptable mainstream."

Unlike the police, Strenger claims to know who attacked Sternhell's home and who was behind it.

Hypocrisy of the Israeli Left

For Sternhell and those of his mindset on the Israeli Left, though, the main charge against the settlements was that they supposedly perpetuated Israeli rule over the Palestinians -- in their view the crux of all evil. And it was when the positions of such left-wing academics, writers, and cultural figures seeped into the mainstream, being adopted by politicians like Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin, that Israel created the PA, dismantled most of the “occupation,” and replaced it with direct Palestinian rule.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for Sternhell and his friends to do some soul-searching about the result -- a reign of horrific abuses inconceivably worse than the few instances of settler misconduct they keep harping on.

About that Attack on Prof. Sternhell

Beyond that, several other rather tame observations might be mentioned. These include:

- Sternhell's political outlook and opinions were repugnant before the attack and did not become any less repugnant because of the attack.
- Radical Leftist sedition does not become legitimized because of the attack on Sternhell, no matter who carried it out.
- Critics of the radical Left do not become delegitimized because of the attack on Sternhell, no matter who carried it out.
- Critics of Prof. Sternhell's opinions have as much right to express their criticisms as Sternhell himself has to express his.

Ben Gurion University - Assassin in Prison but his Protector (Neve Gordon) is Teaching at Ben Gurion University

The murderers of Ze’evi were kept hidden in the “Mukata’a” headquarters of Yassir Arafat in Ramallah, in defiance of all the obligations of the Palestinian Authority under the Oslo accords. While hidden there, the Israel Defense Forces attempted to apprehend the murderers and had the headquarters surrounded. But then a group of “human shields” and “Solidarity with Terrorism” protesters from the anti-Israel radical Left entered Ramallah illegally and interfered with the attempts to arrest the murderers. ... Among those leading the “Solidarity with Terrorism” human shields that illegally interfered with the attempt to arrest the murderers in Ramallah was Neve Gordon, an anti-Israel extremist at Ben Gurion University. Gordon considers Israel to be a fascist, apartheid terrorist entity and recently has been calling for Israel’s elimination altogether as part of the so-called “One-State Solution,” in which Israel will be enfolded inside a larger Arab-dominated Islamofascist-controlled state. The “One-State Solution” of the anti-Semitic Left should better be called the Rwanda solution to the Jewish problem.

University of Haifa - Haggai Kupermintz is one professor of education who needs educating about PLO intentions

Kupermintz, the Professor of Education, showed his lack of realistic education right after the Passover Massacre in 2002 … where 31 Israelis, most of them Holocaust survivors, were blown to bits during a Passover Seder in Netanya. The bomber should have been of interest to Professor of Education Haggai Kupermintz because he was a Palestinian Arab youth and a graduate of the then eight-year-old Palestinian hate-education system. The Arab killer was a product of an Arab regime that heralds suicide bombing, pays the families of killers for martyrdom, and even abuses ambulances for the transfer of suicide bombers, all the while promoting anti-Jewish, anti-Israel and anti-US hatred through its education programs in all forms of media.

Where was a letter or petition from Haggai as an educator and supporter of Peace Education to Arafat about such misuse of education? Instead, Kupermintz signed a petition objecting to the taking of the Mukata, an act which provided evidence that the Palestinian leadership under Arafat and Abbas themselves had not only authorized the Passover Massacre attack but that Arafat had personally authorized payment for it.

The Two Societies: the university and the security services

When the state calls upon its men and women to serve, and if needs be die, those called upon deserve recompense from the state. If that comes in the form of discounts and decent pay and a good education at a top ranked university that is only fair. To claim that the university owes them nothing, to claim that the ivory tower exists in a vacuum may sound nice today, but one day that vacuum may be rudely punctured, as it was by the July 2002 terrorist attack at Hebrew university. Then suddenly the civil society begs for protection.

College of Management - Yossi Nehushtan (School of Law) Expresses Neofascist Ideas about Freedom of Speech and Restricts it to Those Whose Views He Likes:

In an article published in Hebrew, Yossi Nehushtan objects that the State of Israel wants to refuse to grant permission to a flag-waving parade in Um el-Fahm based on the possible civil disorder that might ensue. In his opinion, the State of Israel should refuse to grant permission based solely on the ideology of the petitioners.

Nehushtan invalidates the ideology of Itamar Ben-Gvir and Baruch Marzal and thus they should not receive the protection of the law. The State should reject their claims due to illegitimate values.

Nehushtan goes further and states that if the Supreme Court does allow the demonstration to take place in Um el-Fahm proper then there will no longer be any “logical” reason not to allow demonstrations for alleged Tzahal war crimes next to Memorial services or for Holocaust-deniers to protest in front of old age homes populated by Holocaust-survivors.

Binghamton University (SUNY) - A response to a letter Isracampus received from a reader: Bat-Ami Bar-On

There is not one democratic Arab or Muslim country in the entire umma, or the entire world; even a future Palestinian state will be run by Sharia law as its constitution, already ratified, is modeled after those of Saudi Arabia and Iran. The Palestinian Arabs may not have equal military power in the West Bank and Gaza (where they are arming thanks to Iran), but they have the entire Muslim and totalitarian world behind them with oil money, guns, more money, boycotts, more oil money, intimidation, extra oil money, publicity, add on oil money, divestment, Gulf oil money and classical anti-Semitism, and, coming soon to threaten the only Jewish state near you, nuclear weapons.

It is me as a writer here at Isracampus who believes it is you who "misunderstands" the concept of democracy. You think it means the power to say, undisputed, anything one wants no matter how untrue, or how damaging to concept of empirical proof, should be given equal weight to the facts. Arabs who do not maintain bomb factories in their homes or build illegally on someone else's property without a deed do not incur home demolitions. Peaceful Arabs in the territories are not "harassed" and do have recourse to complain to the authorities (meanwhile the Arabs complain of babies stillborn at checkpoints (that never occurred) in the same ambulances that have in the past transported suicide bombers and weapons). Checkpoints don't just prevent the deaths of Jews by terrorists, they protect innocent Arabs on both sides of the Green Line.

Ben Gurion University - Rivka Carmi, President of Ben Gurion University, hails anti-Israel activity on her campus

That is an educational system like those of totalitarian and communist countries, countries where radical socialism rules what everyone thinks. Whereas, some faculty at BGU - without protest from Rivka Carmi - have called for the annihilation of Israel and even served as human shields for Arafat in his compound after the Passover Massacre, or objected to Israel’s controlling overseas Arab academics from entering the West Bank out of security concerns, Rivka Carmi has stated that she considers American donors objecting to funding of such anti-Israel “faculty” at BGU constitutes “trying to dictate the agenda of the University.” She considers donors speaking up as outside interference, but the boycotting her own university by outside interests inspired by overseas radicals as perfectly justifiable.

Tel Aviv University - Marxist sociologist Yehuda Shenhav explains why the "Palestinian refugees" deserve compassion, but the Jewish refugees from Arab countries (or what he calls "Arab Jews") do not:

'Any reasonable person, Zionist or non-Zionist, must acknowledge that the analogy drawn between Palestinians and Arab Jews is unfounded. Palestinian refugees did not want to leave Palestine. Many Palestinian communities were destroyed in 1948, and some 700,000 Palestinians were expelled, or fled, from the borders of historic Palestine. Those who left did not do so of their own volition. In contrast, Arab Jews arrived to Israel under the initiative of the State of Israel and Jewish organizations. Some arrived of their own free will; others arrived against their will. Some lived comfortably and securely in Arab lands; others suffered from fear and oppression.'

University of Haifa - Ron Kuzar (Dept of English) - fan of the "Canaanite" movement of post-Jewishness - deconstructs and prettifies the "Palestinian Right to Return," discovers it means something other than the annihilation of Israel, a discovery that will come as a great shock to the Palestinians:

"The Term Return in the Palestinian Discourse on the Right of Return"
2008, Discourse & Society 19(5)

'The term return is used in the English texts of contemporary Palestinian political authors writing on the Right of Return of Palestinians to their homes and homeland. The first part is dedicated to a semantic analysis of return as a radial category with a core meaning and extensions. Then the meanings of return in these texts are discussed, as used in the discourse of Palestinian maximalists versus pragmatists. It is shown that (1) different meanings of return are selected according to whether the writer is a maximalist or a pragmatist, and (2) a reality that harmonizes with these meanings is narratively constructed.'

(We would like to see Kuzar present his findings in Gaza City!)

Other Schools - Another (ex-) Israeli Academic Hater of Israel: Daniel Boyarin of UC Berkeley

His resume is quite impressive, because he is a Talmudic scholar and has written works about Judaism, its history and scripture, generally demolished as pseudo-scholarship by serious academic reviewers. A US-born citizen of Israel, he once taught at Ben Gurion University and Bar-Ilan University and is currently a professor of Near East Studies at UC Berkeley. Since UC Berkeley is a campus that, although it has a large Jewish population, is home to many an anti-Israel Arab and leftist, one might not be surprised that Daniel Boyarin has as negative opinion of Israel’s self-defense as is found among so many of Israel’s intelligentsia working in Arab dominated US Middle East Studies programs. In fact, Boyarin pretty clearly does not think Israel should exist at all. Daniel Boyarin is notorious for how he displays a virulent hatred for the Jewish people of Israel whose Talmud he studied for so many years, particularly towards Israelis who practice self-defense against Arab irredentism. In addition, Boyarin’s overlooking of anti-Semitism and his embracing of anti-Semites at UC Berkeley and elsewhere make him particularly difficult to comprehend for most rational people.

Tel Aviv University - Ran HaCohen (Dept of Comparative Literature) Conveniently Forgets Arab Terror When He Scoffs About Israeli Security Concerns

But that's not the end of it: the report also states that "For its part, Israel would like to supervise border crossings, maintain a limited deployment in the Jordan Valley, continue overflights of the Palestinian territory, maintain early warning stations on mountain ridges, and hold emergency response units in Palestinian areas."

Oh, so that's what Israel means by a "two-state solution": An "independent" "Palestinian" "state" with Israeli supervision on its borders crossings, full of Israeli soldiers, Israeli jets, Israeli military stations – and, of course, Israel's right to send even more soldiers into it in "times of emergency." Shall we – to expose Israel's true face – suggest mutuality? How about Palestinian control on Israel's border crossings, a Palestinian military presence along Israel's Mediterranean coast, Palestinian jets free to fly over Tel Aviv and Dimona, Palestinian military stations in Haifa and Ramat Yishay, and Palestinian emergency response units in Israeli areas? Obviously, such "security arrangements" are completely incompatible with a sovereign, independent state. … The Israeli proposal – as its "security arrangements" reveal – proves once again that Israel is no partner for peace.

Elitist Bar Ilan University Poli Sci Lecturer Menachem Klein never says die to a “peace process” while rubber stamping the views of avowed anti-Semites

The pondering question is “Is Klein being just an opportunist here or a quisling for anti-Semites, or is he really so naïve?” View the CNI video yourself in its entirety and see the answer is most likely the former. Klein’s appearance with the CNI is like a Jew speaking out in support of the goals of Nazis during World War II. Israelis who appear at similar symposiums worldwide claiming to talk peace, but secretly booked for pushing the Palestinian agenda are plentiful, but Menachem Klein seems to be among the most skilled of them all. That the CNI is revered in America by neo-Nazis and funded by the Saudis, something that isn’t revealed in the video, but something Klein must know forces us to ask what more would Menachem Klein need to divorce himself from such an organization, even if he really was just a starry-eyed peace activist? And to think former PM Ehud Barak used this guy as an adviser!!!

But I think this is a sort of cover. I think that actually, in a more concealed way, this image contributes to militaristic ideas filtering into civil society without our noticing it.

Hebrew University – Gannit Ankori’s (Dept of Art History) book on Palestinian Art draws claims of “plagiarism”

As a self-professed radical leftist, she was called "Arafat's whore and anti-Zionist, because I dared to even use the term Palestinian," and now, paradoxically, she is seen, in her words, as a colonialist and occupier.

Who, then, has the right to tell the Palestinian story? Did Ankori, as a Jewish Israeli who decided to write the history of Palestinian art, not enter a political minefield from which she had no chance of escaping safely? Can the occupier tell the story of the occupied without appropriating it?

Post Zionist Uri Davis shows true colors, abandons Judaism

Just two months ago, Davis took part in an Arab-sponsored "Haifa Conference," billed as "defend[ing] a secular democratic state in historic Palestine." A summary of the conference written by Yoav Bar states that the Conference "was our moment to raise our heads from the exhausting daily struggle and promise ourselves and the world that the suffering of the Palestinian people may be brought to an end and there can be a bright future for everybody in Palestine after we get rid of the racist Zionist disorder." ... Dr. Davis gave one of the three Hebrew speeches at the Conference; the others were delivered by Yehuda Kupferman of the "Committee for a Secular and Democratic state in the Whole of Palestine," and Dr. Anat Matar, a leading supporter of the rights of Palestinian prisoners and the rights of Israeli youth to refuse to serve in the IDF.

UCLA - Yael Korin's (Medical School) War on Israel

In addition to Women in Black, Korin is listed here by Al-Awda (the Palestinian Right to Return Coalition) as a “founding member of the Campaign to End Israeli Apartheid, Southern California.” Attach any vicious terminology to Israel—“born in sin,” “war crimes,” “ethnic cleansing,” “apartheid”—and Yael Korin is there to endorse and propagate it. Her pathological loathing of Israel and Israelis, if not literally murderous (and that is an open question), certainly encompasses identifying with those who do murder Israelis en masse. Psychologically speaking she is a frightening phenomenon of reality-distortion and evil, exploiting her democratic freedoms to spread her message of incendiary hatred.

Hebrew University - Eyal Ben Ari (Dept of Sociology) uses the banner of Feminism to cover up alleged rape

But the most disturbing part of the entire story is the way Feminism hangs over it. Ben-Ari and Nitzan were believers in the fact that the Israeli military, and military in general, is a patriarchal, chauvinistic negative culture. This culture is in direct contrast to the enlightened and progressive culture found at the university. Yet it turns out that raping and sexual assault were not taking place in the barracks but perhaps in the very hallowed halls of the ivory tower, right at the center of feminism, sociology and anthropology at Hebrew University. ... If the allegations prove true and the extent and period of Ben-Ari's activities is correct then we see that while the pashas of feminism at Hebrew University were busy critiquing the military they were ignoring the stench of sexual depravity and indecency under their very noses where women were being subjected to the most degrading and disgusting predatory male lurking in the halls of the academy and wrapping himself in the mantle of feminism and progressive thought. The best female minds in sociology and anthropology were being subjected to gratuitous sexual perversion by those same people who dared preach about the immoral chauvinism and ‘militarism’ that supposedly infected Israeli society.
