Tel Aviv University's track record of Pandering to Communism - new evidence

We recently posted a report on a one-day indoctrination session in
communism to be held on the campus of Tel Aviv University this week, in
which communism will be celebrated. While TAU officers are
disingenuously insisting that the conference is merely ABOUT the communist
party, a fast look at the program indicates that it is to be a one-sided
CELEBRATION of communism, where all the speakers are either communists or
pro-communists. The only non-Marxist is Prof. Anita Shapira, a Zionist
scholar, but she is merely there to greet the participants on behalf of
the School of the Humanities and otherwise will not lecture.

Many of the speakers are officials in the Israeli communist party or
academic faculty who are card-carrying communist party
members. For an updated report on this "conference," go here:

The poster for the conference with the list of speakers, featuring a
photo of Stalin and a hammer and sickle, can be seen here:

As you can see from that report, this is hardly the first time that Tel
Aviv University collaborated with the Israeli communist party in its
indoctrination activities.

However, an even MORE amazing story is the fact that Tel Aviv University
has exercised self-censorship and suppressed freedom of speech to coddle
communism and pander to communists. The news report is here:

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 above news story reports: 'The decision to shut down the exhibit was
made by the University's top management, and that the Chinese Embassy in
Israel pressured the University in this regard. One of the works displayed
at the exhibition, titled "Tragedy in China"."It is important to ask why
the Chinese Embassy threatens a university because of an art exhibit,"
said Nitzan. "I think the answer is clear," he continued. "The exhibition
displays paintings of the banned Falun Gong spiritual practice and the
torture the practitioners in China are suffering from." '

While the whole world protests the dhimmitude being exhibited by some
European governments too cowardly to protect freedom of speech, here we
have the spectacle of the heads of Tel Aviv University suppressing
academic freedom and freedom of speech in order to mollycoddle
Chinese communism.

This being the case, the decision to hold a one-sided celebration of
communism and indoctrination into Marxism on the campus of Tel Aviv
University this week hardly is a novelty!

If you are upset by this story, please take a few moments and let the
heads of Tel Aviv University know what you think:
