Two leading Israeli universities are offering strong support for Israel’s ongoing massacre in Gaza, examples of the complicity that has led Palestinians to call for academic boycott.
Shurat HaDin’s case against now-victorious professor and boycott activist Jake Lynch has collapsed.

Pro-Israel groups are using court venues around the world in an attempt to stilfe the Palestinian-led boycott campaign, but are having surprisingly mixed results.
“While all Israeli universities are deeply complicit in the occupation, settler-colonialism and apartheid, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is particularly noteworthy.”

The students spell out some of the systemic discrimination in which Hebrew University is involved.
