To-day’s students are tomorrow’s leaders Concerned about Israel’s image in the academic world?
Did you know?
Students are being educated to isolate and delegitimize the State of Israel.
A number of the “educators” are Israeli academics employed by Israeli universities. Aside from educating their own students with anti-Israel indoctrination they also travel abroad leading the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Campaign (BDS) against Israel.
Israeli academics launch the defamatory “Israel Apartheid Week” on University campuses worldwide.
Radical TAU academics in the past year:
- On Feb 21, 2012 in a Berlin conference of Heinrich Böll Foundation "What do Germans and Israelis have in common? What sets them apart?" Gadi Algazi [TAU, History] stated: "One could sum up what we ask of Israel: an end to its colonization politics," he said. "As long as Israel's settlement policy continues, we will not have peace in the Middle East. This is the heart of our tragedy. For that reason, I would call for economic and political pressure on Israel until it agrees to completely stop its colonization."
- On 6 April 2012, in a German article "A well orchestrated hysteria" about a poem by Günter Grass, Moshe Zuckermann [TAU, Cohn] agreed with Grass that "Israel is a threat to world peace."
- On May 6, 2012 in a conference held at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research in New York, Yoav Peled [TAU Political Science] argued that the Zionist enterprise in Palestine fits the “colonialist thesis.”
- On June 25, 2012 in Business Day South Africa, Alon Liel [TAU, Security & Diplomacy] wrote: "I...do my best not to buy Israeli products from the occupied territories. I don’t see why you, living outside Israel, shouldn’t have the same choice."
- On June 2012 in Zochrot website, Adi Ophir [TAU Minerva Humanities] wrote about the importance of Zochrot, "the occupation has become a permanent form of control, colonial expansion clearly visible in all its brutality, de-facto Apartheid almost declared and often even formally enshrined, the integration of the Jewish space in the OPT almost complete....The dogs that barked at the Nakba commemoration event at Tel Aviv University, however, belonged to the right and were extremely loud, but our caravan went on nevertheless." (Zochrot was created to "educate Israeli citizens about the Nakba and restore the memory of Palestinian presence before 1948." In its mission statement "recognizing the tragedy is a prerequisite for ending the conflict, which also includes a return of Palestinian refugees and their resettlement in Israel.")
- On June 2012 & June 2013 in TAU's LGBT conference "Sex Acher" Merav Amir and Leehee Rothschild are panelists; both are renowned BDS activists.
- A journalist Ishai Friedman revealed that a TAU student named Anat Levy - one of the organizers of Nakba Memorial Day 2012 at TAU - admitted in an interview that Aeyal Gross, Anat Matar and Anat Bilezki sponsored the Nakba event.
- On Sept 4, 2012 Theater director Peter Brook admitted that Anat Matar [TAU Philosophy] convinced him to cancel his participation in the International Festival for Plays of the Cameri Theatre. In her letter to him Matar wrote "I believe that decisions about cultural and academic boycott need to be taken after due discretion and not blindly...The issue with the Cameri is its decision...to support the oppression of the Palestinians by performing on their occupied land."
- On Oct 10, 2012 in the German Junge Welt "Resist the zeitgeist: About Jews, German, the Middle East conflict and anti-Semitism" Moshe Zuckermann [TAU, Cohn] wrote: Israel's "act of Colonization...had led in the 1948 war for the national catastrophe of the Palestinians, the Nakba, and continues to this day."
- On October 25, 2012 in the Independent Studies Program at the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona, Ariella Azoulay [TAU, Minerva Humanities] said: "Israel's creation was a catastrophe for both Jews and Arabs." Azoulay urged Israelis to take a number of steps. "First, past history needs to be rewritten to make clear that Jews were only a tiny minority in Palestine - only six percent- and did not deserve a state of their own. Second, the term Palestine rather than Israel should be used. Third, Jews must start the process of "forgiveness" by acknowledging that they made Palestinians into refugees by violence."
- On Nov 16, 2012 in the Munich Salam Shalom Palätina-Israel Working Group event "Israel's occupation is a colonial project: the settlements as a business;" Gadi Algazi [TAU History] lectured "The lucrative connection of Colonialism and capital in occupied West Bank."
- On Nov 18, 2012 in Haaretz (Hebrew) Shlomo Sand [TAU, History] wrote "Why are they shooting missiles at us?"They "are refugees and the descendants of refugees of those lands on which we live. 65 years have passed and they still remember... What's more, the injustice done to them has never been recognised by us...the force of the memory of their disaster."
- On Nov 21, 2012 in an email to members of Coalition of Women for Peace from Rachel Giora [TAU, Linguistics] "The world cannot stand by when Palestine is once more battered to death," Giora and Yehouda Shenhav [TAU Sociology] circulated a petition "The inaction of the Western governments is further proof of their indifference to their electorates’ wish to stop Israel from perpetrating yet another massacre against the Palestinian people."
- On Dec 15, 2012 in Truthout "Starving for Recognition: The Plight of Palestinian Political Prisoners" Anat Matar [TAU Philosophy] complained that "in Western media reports Palestinians are portrayed as security risks rather than political prisoners, and as “militants” and “terrorists,” rather than resistance fighters."
