JNS.org – Arab students called for a renewed intifada (violent uprising) and brandished photos of convicted terrorists in a protest held in solidarity with hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners at Hebrew University of Jerusalem this week.

The protest, organized by Arab-Israeli political coalition Hadash, saw students chanting “Intifada and victory! From Jerusalem to Ashkelon!” and “Let’s talk exile! We don’t want to see any Zionists,” The Times of Israel reported.

Hebrew University officials defended the protest, saying in a statement provided to Israel’s Channel 2, “The student event in support of the hunger-striking prisoners was held in accordance with the [university’s] regulations and there was nothing said that constitutes a violation of [Israeli] law.”

Since mid-April, hundreds of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails have been holding a hunger strike organized by Palestinian arch-terrorist Marwan Barghouti.

Earlier this month, Hebrew University came under fire for a decision not to play Israel’s national anthem, “Hatikvah,” during a graduation ceremony. The university was reportedly seeking to avoid offending Arab students.

    The authorities did not stop the protest, so no fashion-conscious libero-fascist can claim the “apartheid” bs. However, Israeli law also does not require hiring anybody, so not being able to get a good job after graduation would serve these little pukes right. Canary Mission them!

    Hebrew University in Israel won’t play Hatikvah, it’s national anthem, for fear of offending people who hate the country they are in? I see the problem.
