JNS.org – A Jewish former professor at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom refused to help a 13-year-old Israeli student from a kibbutz with a school assignment.

Shachar Rabinovitz wrote an email to Dr. Marsha Levine, asking four questions regarding an academic project on horses because the professor is an expert on the history of the domestication of horses. Rabinovitz told Levine that she is from Israel.

Levine refused to answer Rabinovitz’s questions and took the opportunity to declare her anti-Israel stance.

“I am a member of Jews for Justice for Palestinians. I support Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions. You might be a child, but if you are old enough to write to me, you are old enough to learn about Israeli history and how it has impacted on the lives of Palestinian people,” Levine wrote.

Levine added a link to the Jews for Justice for Palestinians website and told Rabinovitz that she should educate herself on the Palestinian people. Levine later told The Telegraph that if a student from a different country contacted her, she would have responded differently.

“I made the decision that I have the choice not to waste my time on people who tread on the rights of other people. I didn’t do anything to her. I said that when there is justice for Palestine I will answer her—that’s a fair answer. I’m a signatory to Jews for Justice for Palestinians and I sent her a link. I did it as a matter of conscience. The way Israel treats Palestinians is totally disgusting,” Levine told London’s Jewish Chronicle.

    Probably you know a lot about horses,
    but I doubt about your knowledges of history, especially Jewish history.
    Palestinians don’t exist anymore after the Romans left the area Judea.
    You are living in the comics of Astrix and Obelix of Gaul (Gaule) Have you ever heard about France?
    Poor ‘Professor’ Marsha Levine!!!!
