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.”.”

  14. We are the fools for not throwing them out of our country.

  15. Anthony Kent says:

    Having studied at Hebrew U many moons ago, I can say nothing has changed. They just express their views more openly now rather than just to the foreign students.

  16. throw them the hell out of school!. Send them to Syria!!

  21. Oh yes what an apartheid regime allowing freedom of speech by all even those who oppose. #BDSFAIL!

  22. That’s called Biting the Hand that feeds you send them away Israel

  23. 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?

  24. Violet Helms says:

    What the what?! Do these freaking kids realize that they are able to obtain an education in a free environment? No doubt they are book smart but certainly lake intelligence when it comes to real life. Disgusting.

  25. The sewer and cesspool is the Gaza strip!!! Jerusalem is one of the most beautiful cities in the world!!!

  26. Sandy Benet says:

    That’s because they have it too good let them go learn in the USA will see how much they will have to pay

  27. Close the exhibit & expel them. They can take their hate for the land that’s giving them an education to Gaza

  28. Rikki West says:

    Should ALL be expelled and sent home,they are expected to except the way they are taught in the best Uni in the world.

  29. Get rid of all the Arab students, kick them out of the country if they can’t behave themselves, let them roam like the Bedouins they are.

  32. Gary Gien says:

    May be we can do what they are born to do and throw stones at those filthy pallys

  33. Idiot students in the USA do this too. Then they wonder why they can only find jobs flipping burgers with their liberal arts degrees.

  34. just shoot them, they are vermin.

  35. just shoot them, they are vermin.

  36. Ken Man says:

    Ha! ‘death god cultists’ what do you expect, it’s what they do, pathetic creatures that they are

  38. Dick Farrel says:

    shut the bastards DOWN

  39. Freedom of expression is an example we need to set and keep. Freedom to disagree with the government too. What a bright and shining example we are for the rest if the world.

  40. And they’re allowed to still be students there???

  41. Alan Kardon says:

    The signs have been removed. If they are Israeli's shame on them. If they are foreigners deport them to where they came from. Not very complicated.

  42. Would they be in university in an Arab country ?

  43. Dita Gould says:

    They are not grateful for getting an education.This is the thanks we get.
