The article discusses the anti-Israel movement encouraged by professors in Israel. Details about the criticism of Israel, opposition to free speech, and support of Arab terrorism by Leftist professors are included. The indoctrination of students on college campus in universities such as Tel Aviv University and Haifa University is discussed.
