The launching of "Israel Academia Monitor"
Press Release

The launching of "Israel Academia Monitor"

For more information, go to http://israel-academia-monitor.com/
Israel Academia Monitor P.O.Box 920 Kfar Shmaryahu 46910

It is with great pleasure that we announce the official opening of the web
site for Israel Academia Monitor, at the web address:
http://israel-academia-monitor.com/

Israel Academia Monitor is an Israeli watchdog group that monitors abuses of
academic freedom and politicalization of Israeli campuses by extremists and
radicals in Israeli academia who probably damage Israel because they want to
be accepted by the enemy or by some of Israel's worst adversaries. We have
modeled ourselves in part on the highly successful "Campus Watch"
organization and monitoring group in the United States.

The purpose of Israel Academia Monitor is to bring to light abuses of
academic freedom in Israel. Israeli academic institutions have been misused
in recent years as platforms for radical anti-Israel and even anti-Semitic
propagandizing, often by tenured radicals with embarrassing academic records
and dubious research credentials. Israeli universities have been
politicized, with hiring and promotion decisions subordinated to political
bias. Israeli extremist academics have misused their podiums to spread
anti-Israel libel and venom and to aid haters of Israel and of Jews around
the world, including those seeking to boycott and delegitimize Israel and
Jews.

The campus extremists have used their comfortable and protected positions in
academia to promote insurrection and lawbreaking. They have done so while
pocketing the subsidies and budget allocations of Israeli taxpayers and the
financial gifts to the universities of donors and contributors. And while
Israeli academic extremists insist that their seditious and anti-patriotic
behavior must be protected as "academic freedom", they also believe that no
one else should be permitted to monitor, nor criticize them as part of that
same freedom. They believe in freedom of speech for leftist radicals and
haters of Israel alone, but not for the critics of the radicals, not for the
donors and contributors to universities, and not for politicians critical of
the abuses inside the universities. Criticism of an anti-Zionist Israeli
leftist is, in their opinion, "McCarthyism".

Israel Academia Monitor was founded and is operated by a group of donors,
concerned academics, students, researchers, and others. We bring to light
statements and articles written by and about the academic extremists and
university anti-Zionists. It is our purpose to expose the activities and
statements of Israel's academic extremists. We encourage students,
scholars, and others to submit to us materials, and we will post and publish
those that are appropriate and relevant.

We believe it is essential to document and monitor abuses of the cap and
gown in Israel and call upon readers to support our efforts and assist us in
all ways.

Our web site is filled with citations of anti-Israel extremism, endorsements
of Israel's destruction, rationalizations of anti-Israel terrorism,
defamation of Israel and of Jews, all the doings of extremist faculty
members at Israeli universities. The citations are arranged by university
and by faculty member name. While it would be hard to judge across the
institutions, Ben Gurion University is no doubt leading the field, with the
worst and largest numbers of anti-Israel fanatics on its faculty. The
University of Haifa, Tel Aviv University, and Hebrew University are not far
behind. Only the Technion and Bar Ilan University faculty have produced
only small amounts of anti-Israel venom.

Among the many rogues featured on the Israel Academia Monitor web site are
Oren Yiftachel from Ben-Gurion University, denouncing Israel repeatedly as
an apartheid state, Neve Gordon, also from BGU, declaring that Israel is
becoming fascist and is a terrorist state worse than the Hamas, Moshe
Zimmerman from the Hebrew University comparing the Torah to Mein Kampf,
Tanya Reinhart and Paul Wexler from Tel Aviv University calling for a
worldwide boycott of Israeli universities, Ran HaCohen from Tel Aviv
University endorsing Hizbullah attacks on Israel, and many, many more. We
document the Israeli university faculty members who promote mutiny and
insurrection by soldiers, who collaborate with anti-Semites and enemies of
Israel, who sign petitions defaming Israel and Jews, who support lawlessness
and terror.

We encourage reader support and contribution of new materials on the
misbehavior of Israeli academic extremists, which will be posted on our web
site, and of course financial support as well.

"One day, when historians scratch their heads and wonder just how Israel
could have adopted the policies it did in the Oslo era of the 1990s, they
will likely devote considerable attention to the role of the country's
academics. In amazement, they will look back on how a number of radicals
actively legitimated the agenda of the country's enemies, thereby doing much
to demoralize their fellow nationals." --- Middle East Quarterly

I think it is telling that the website seems to be primarily addressed to (presumably right-wing, foreign, and largely American) donors to Israeli universities.  In other words, it is adopting the alleged tactics of a very small handful of leftwing Israeli academics, in calling for a boycott of Israeli universities, couched, of course, in terms of attacking anti-Zionists.  Of course, it does not say in so many words that donors should boycott, but obviously that threat is the point of contacting university officials.

Then, when others, who identify with more mainstream leftwing positions, rightly spring to the defense of genuinely attacked academic freedom in Israel, we are accused of sharing and spreading the same opinions.

It is a cliche, but a true one, that freedom of speech or academic freedom only exists if it protects more extreme opinions (both left and right, of course).  Thus, the "Academic Monitor" is a threat to the integrity of Israeli universities and intellectual life in Israel, even if everyone it targets is genuinely anti-Zionist and extreme (which is almost certainly not the case.)  I haven't examined all the people targeted by Academic Monitor, but its American brother, Campus Watch, certainly spreads a wide and dangerous net.

U.S. products invariably turn up on Israeli shelves.  This is one that Israel could do without.

In the best tradition of Kahane and Jewish Fascism:
I would look for Feiglin, Marzel and Federman behind the "concerned
academics, students and researchers"

Have you ever tried to 'monitor' what I consider one of the most amazing

I would not worry. I think that those who contribute to Israeli
universities are
more impressed by the academic achievements, by Nobel and other prizes,
rather than
by right wing pachkevils. And if there are some who are impressed by that -
let them transfer their contributions to another home for the Lubavicher
Moshiach
or to another Yesha sticker against disengagement.

Paul Scham writes:  "the "Academic Monitor" is a threat to the integrity of Israeli universities and intellectual life in Israel, even if everyone it targets is genuinely anti-Zionist and extreme (which is almost certainly not the case.) I haven't examined all the people targeted by Academic Monitor, but its American brother, Campus Watch, certainly spreads a wide and dangerous net."

Maybe Scham's problem is that he and his Far Leftist friends from "Peace Now -USA", have themselves been exposed by Campus Watch?   Had he bothered to wade through the IAM web site he would see that it contains little more than long citations in full from the fatwas of Israel's more extremist leftists, some almost as extremist as Scham himself.
So, as usual, the leftist extremists object to anyone expressing criticism of their ideas and opinions and behavior.  They believe they should be beyond criticism.  Even if the "criticism" consists of nothing more than citing their own statements back at them!

I agree with the person who wrote, regarding vituperative screams like the one below:
"I think the reactions here thus far are a little hysterical, totally
irrational, and even childish."

Incidentally, you are perfectly entitled, from my point of view, to express your opinions.  I think they speak for themselves, but don't add much to rational debate.

Scham says he is not Peace Now, huh?
