“Know the Anti-Israel Israeli Professor” is a project of Im Tirtzu, Israel’s largest grassroots Zionist movement.
The mission of the website is to create an understanding that the international BDS and delegitimization phenomenon against Israel does not exist in a vacuum; rather, it is often created, bolstered, and spearheaded by Israelis themselves.
Radical Israeli academics are often at the forefront of the boycott and delegitimization campaigns against Israel. By virtue of being Israeli, these radical professors are viewed by the outside observer as neutral and credible authorities on matters concerning Israel.
This unearned credibility is then used by Israel-haters worldwide to attack Israel, justifying their bigotry with the logic, “Israelis themselves are the ones saying these things, not me!”
Furthermore, many of these extreme professors cynically bash Israel while using the good name of the Israeli universities that employ them.
We are certain that “Know the Anti-Israel Israeli Professor” is not only a service to students worldwide, but a service to the general public who can now gain a better understanding of the challenges facing Israel.
