Imprisoned Terrorists Studying at Hebrew University

(Israelnationalnews.com) The State of Israel continues to pay for the higher education of Arab terrorist prisoners, an advertisement by the "Prisoners' Club" in Ramallah shows.
The advertisement gave notice that 100 prisoners from the Rimon jail are enrolled at Hebrew University as foreign students. It also said that three prisoners had received Masters' Degrees.
"Giving the prisoners an education is an important step, and the heads of the [terror] organizations in the jails encourage the inmates to join the studies at Hebrew University", imprisoned terrorist Jamal Rajoub said.
Rajoub added that the prisons also give prisoners courses in "general education."
Israel's Prisons Authority has a long-standing policy of accommodating prisoners' demands in order to avoid riots and strikes, which can only be quelled violently. The Prisons Authority has stated that it is not sure it would receive the backing of the political and legal system if such actions would be necessary.

This past week dozens of tenured leftists in Israel decided to demonstrate their individuality by recruiting themselves in an act of totalitarian conformity in support of the McCarthyist attempts to silence the "Im Tirtzu" student activist group in Israel. Im Tirtzu is a Zionist student group, including secularist and religious Israeli students. It has been active in exposing the harassment of students by leftist faculty members when students dare to question the bias of those profs in their classrooms. Then over the past week Im Tirtzu has dominated the media in Israel because of its expose of the New Israel Fund.
According to that expose, covered on the front page of Maariv and then discussed at length in all the Israeli press, 92% of the false smears against Israel contained in the UN's "Goldstone report" were provided by leftist anti-Israel groups inside Israel funded by the New Israel Fund.
The Israeli academic moonbats are upset that the students are exercising their freedom of speech to denounce the New Israel Fund and its director, Naomi Hazan, who used to be a Knesset Member from Meretz. The semi-Marxist Meretz Party is down to three seats in the Knesset out of 120, yet seeks to impose its will on the entire country in an anti-democratic manner. It does so via facilitating foreign funding for seditious NGOs (non-government organizations) operated by picayune groups inside Israel enjoying virtually no support, even less than the support Meretz gets.
The academic moonbats have been displaying herd mentality as they rush out to sign petitions denouncing Im Tirtzu, demanding that it be silenced, while also endorsing the shenanigans of the New Israel Fund. They insist that Israeli democracy and freedom of speech are in danger of being destroyed if non-leftist students are allowed to express opinions. Just imagine what they teach in their classrooms!
The reactions of the tenured herd reminded me of the old Bing Crosby song from World War II, about the little lambs.
Here are the lyrics, with slight changes:
We're poor leftist lambs who have lost our way,
Bah, bah, bah.
We're little herd sheep who bleat all day,
Bah, bah, bah.
Treasonous postureurs off on a spree
Doomed from here to eternity
Lord have mercy on such as we!
Bah, bah, bah.
