Arab Students Launch Anti-Israel Photo Exhibit at Hebrew U.

Watan, a Palestinian student group at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, launched a new exhibit featuring photos whose captions are hostile to Israel, referring to Jerusalem as a “sewer of the Israeli settlements” and to Israeli soldiers as “the occupation army” and “the hunters of liberty.”

In the “Pictures From Across Palestine” exhibit, which was approved by the university, one image of the Negev Desert is captioned in Hebrew as “Mother Earth” and in Arabic as “Mother Palestine,” according to the Yisrael HaYom newspaper.

In response, Hebrew University said, “We allow all student activity as long as it is not illegal. However, the Watan student group did not submit the captions for approval. Therefore, we have removed them from the exhibit. Opinions expressed by student groups obviously do not reflect our position.”

Matan Peleg, director of the Zionist organization Im Tirtzu, called on Hebrew University “to re-examine its authorization of the exhibit and issue a statement that it will not tolerate violence or incitement of any kind.”.”

  2. art is created to make a statement but in this case the school is responsible for their lack of good judgement in democracies even in america their are groups that put on exhibitions not in line with the government or in alignment with everyone way of thinking its called freedom of speech

  3. So, why are they there if they dislike Israel that much…or is it that the education and the opportunities Israel gives are OK, but having to eran them through effort is not OK and these pigs children of pigs (ancient Muslim insult) feel outraged because they are not receiving Israeli advantages because they are busier wasting time in anti-Israeli rallies instead of studying?
