Israeli University Heads Join Leftist anti-Israel Group in Demanding that
All Controls be Removed on Palestinians entering Campuses
Israeli universities are the occupied territories of the Far Left. The
cartel that oversees and controls the university is known as the Council
on Higher Education, whose main appendage is the VATAT or Budget and
Planning Committee, which allots all public funds to Israeli universities,
using arbitrary and curious criteria. The VATAT consists of university
professors who divvy up among their own institutions the loot taken from
the taxpayer.

The Israeli university system is not only corrupt and mediocre but
dominated by leftist politicization. While university officials often
shrug their shoulders when listening to complaints about the many tenured
traitors operating out of their campuses, insisting that it is all just a
price that needs to be paid if academic freedom is to be preserved, they
generally insist disingenuously that politicization of the campus
leadership and officialdom by the Left does not exist at all.

Oh no? Consider the petition to the Israeli Minister of Defense sent by
the members of the Council of University Presidents this week, as reported
on the YNET news web site. These are university PRESIDENTS, not rank and
file Post-Zionist academic quacks!

It was part of their efforts in support of a court petition filed by
"Gisha," one of the countless leftist pro-Palestinian political groups
operating in Israel. "Gisha" is one of the extremist groups monitored fir
its anti-Israel activities by the NGO-Monitor web site. Funded by the
extremist New Israel Fund and other anti-Zionist groups, it likes to
denounce Israel as an "apartheid" regime that violates international law
(see this and this). The University presidents denounced the Ministry of
Defense for interfering with the right of Palestinians to enter freely and
study in Israeli universities. It seems that the Ministry of Defense would
like to restrict entry to the universities to Palestinians who are not
known terrorists. After all, there have been terrorist attacks within the
Hebrew University campus in which students and other living things were
To Right, Hebrew University cafeteria after Arab terrorist bombing that
murdered students.
The Ministry also wants Palestinian students prevented from entering
certain fields, like nuclear engineering or similar fields in which
Palestinians can learn to murder Jews more effectively.

The University chiefs think otherwise, and see nothing wrong with teaching
Palestinians the basics of constructing nuclear warheads or other skills
helpful in murdering Jews. We are reminded of the recent story of a
leftist professor of pharmacy at the Hebrew University insisting that a
convicted Palestinian terrorist be granted access to lab chemicals. The
University chiefs also seem to think that the six Hebrew University
students recently arrested for membership in Al-Qaeda represent a protest
movement that needs to be expanded.

The chiefs openly endorsed the Gisha court petition. Besides the
University chiefs, those who asked to join the petition were astronomy
Professor Zvi Mazeh of Tel Aviv University, who complained that Jews were
subject to quotas for centuries and so quotas should not be applied to
Arabs in Israel (see this). You would never know from his statement that
Arab applicants to all Israeli universities enjoy affirmative action
preferences and reduced admissions standards. Other signatories included
Professor Moshe Ron, a retiree from the Hebrew University's general
literature department and long an advocate of insurrection and mutiny
among Israeli soldiers (see this), and Ehud De Shalit, a Hebrew University
