Campus watchdog organizations Im Tirtzu, IsraCampus, and Israel Academia Monitor, have determined that approximately 10% of Israeli academics are anti-Zionist, according to a recent study.

Israel Academia Monitor released a statement refuting charges of McCarthyism: “We are not a right-wing organization, but rather an organization that is unaffiliated politically and that keeps its distance from politics. Our role is to protect the universities from political forces, and especially from the extreme left, that exploits the institutions for its needs and acts as if they were its private playing field.”

The study lists more than 1,000 Israelis, 800 of whom are academics.
