A pro-BDS professor at Sydney University may face disciplinary action over his conduct at lecture where anti-Israelis disrupted a speech by retired British Col. Richard Kemp, who has often praised  the IDF for its morality while fighting terror.

The university issued a “show cause” letter to Prof. Jake Lynch, according to The Australian.


Jewish students charged that Lynch made rude gestures towards a Jewish woman and made anti-Semitic statements. The professor, considered a hero of the Boycott Israel movement, denied the allegations.

Protesters who disrupted Kemp’s speech used a megaphone, shouted pro-Palestinian Authority slogans and allegedly urged guards not to physically stop the demonstrators.

The Australian reported that it learned that Lynch was referred to in a report by investigators that some of the protesters “may have engaged in conduct that breached the university’s codes of conduct.”
