Bar-Ilan University bans pro-Israel advocacy material about the ‘nakba’
Both booklets—Nakba Nonsense and The Palestinian Refugee Lie—contain material that is offensive to an entire community. Beyond its title, Nakba Nonsense includes many contemptible expressions. The Palestinian Refugee Lie was not approved because of the caricature that appears on its cover. This drawing contains elements that could be considered racist.
Said the university: “If such booklets were distributed on a college campus abroad, with an Israeli flag or a Star of David hanging on someone’s nose, we would all agree that it is anti-Semitic and racist material.”
