Hypocritical and ungrateful Arab students at an Israeli university again called for violence against the Jewish state, while on campus.
Arab students at Tel Aviv University called for an “Intifada,” a violent uprising, against Israel during a protest held last week at the university’s campus in response to President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
“With spirit and blood we will redeem you, Al-Aqsa; We will fight and teach them a lesson with the sword and force; We will school them through the ways of Intifada; Israel is a terror state; Resist, resist,” were among the slogans chanted by some 50 Arab students who gathered at the university’s square to protest.
Activists from the Im Tirtzu Zionist Student Organization held a counter demonstration, waving Israeli flags and singing Israeli songs including “Hatikvah,” Israel’s national anthem, and “Jerusalem of Gold.”
Last week, Arab students at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem held a protest where they issued calls including “Zionists leave, our land is Arab and free” and “Palestine is Arab from the river to the sea.”
The protest was joined by Arab Member of Knesset Yousef Jabareen who told the protesters to be “proud of our struggle.”
Similar protests were also held last week by Arab students at Ben-Gurion University and Haifa University.
“What we have seen take place on Israeli campuses over the past week is disgraceful,” said Im Tirtzu Chairman Matan Peleg. “On campus grounds, students are openly inciting violence and are calling for the destruction of the State of Israel with impunity. This is a dangerous precedent that will result in violence if not stopped immediately by the heads of the universities.”
“The writing is on the wall and we cannot ignore it,” Peleg warned.
