Academic Bolshevism in Red Haifa: The University of Haifa finds a Pariah

The University of Haifa finds a Pariah, or, Academic Bolshevism in Red Haifa



Haaretz reports that the University of Haifa has decided not to grant an honorary doctoral degree to Nobel Prize winning economist Robert Aumann because the University disapproves of Aumann's political opinions.  He is decidedly non-Left. 

The story in Hebrew appears here:


A few months ago the same University of Haifa had no problem granting an honorary PhD degree to Shulamit Aloni, and has granted similar degrees to other far leftists.


Prof. Aumann won the Nobel Prize in 2005 for his pathbreaking research in game theory and strategy. 


The University of Haifa has been in the news recently for the naked politicization of some of its academic units.  The university's law school was the focus of a blistering report by the Im Tirtzu Zionist student organization exposing the fact that some of its law clinics were coercing students into providing legal aid to convicted terrorists and are also collaborating with anti-Israel radical NGOs such as Adalah.  The law school had earlier prohibited the singing of the national anthem Hatikva at its graduation ceremonies.  Other university universities are similarly politicized and the School of Education operates an indoctrinational "peace education" program.  The University also continues to allow the anti-Semitic "ALEF LIST" chat list to operate under university auspices and to proliferate anti-Jewish and anti-Israel hate propaganda (see for details).   In the past the University of Haifa employed Ilan Pappe and granted him tenure.  All of this has been in the name of "pluralism and diversity."


It turns out that Prof. Aumann is not covered by the University's devotion to pluralism and diversity.


Want to tell the University heads what you think of all this?
