New Im Tirtzu Report: Israeli Academics Enlisting in Support of BDS
A new report released by Im Tirtzu reveals the truly deep and disturbing connection between Israeli academics and the international boycott movement.
The report focuses on the Israeli Anthropological Association as a case study, and reveals how Israeli anthropologists are promoting and encouraging the proposed academic boycott of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) on Israel.
The report was widely covered in both the English and Hebrew media, and today we were informed that as a result of the report MK Oded Forer (Yisrael Beiteinu) called for an emergency meeting in the Knesset's Education Committee to discuss these disturbing findings.
Fighting Politicization at Ben-Gurion University
Im Tirtzu has embarked on a public campaign drawing awareness to a conference sponsored by Ben-Gurion University (BGU) that is set to feature the foreign agent organization "Breaking the Silence," as well as an array of other speakers affiliated with the radical Left. The highly politicized conference scheduled for Monday, May 30, is a clear violation of the Council for Higher Education of Israel's decision to prohibit any attempt to politicize academia.
As a publicly-funded university, BGU's use of taxpayer funds to sponsor an organization that slanders and defames the State of Israel and the IDF throughout the world is unacceptable. Im Tirtzu student activists at Ben-Gurion University have already gathered over 400 student signatures on a petition calling on the university to cancel the conference.
In light of all the media coverage following our campaign, a prominent donor of BGU has publicly stated that he intends to withhold a $1,000,000 gift from the university.
It is important to clarify that Im Tirtzu is not happy about the University's financial loss and is not calling to end donations to the University. On the contrary, we are hoping that the University will do a self-examination and will not hold any more political events saluting radical organizations like "Breaking the Silence." Events such as this ultimately hurt the students as well as the prestige of the University itself.
