Arab Students Protest at Hebrew University: ‘Zionists Leave’

An Israeli Arab student is seen through a torn placard during a ceremony commemorating the 'Nakba Day' in front of Tel Aviv university on May 14, 2012 which was organised by Arab Israelis and left-wing students.

The Algemeiner reports: Arab students at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem called for the expulsion of “Zionists” from Israel in a protest attended by a Knesset member on Tuesday.

“Palestine is Arab from the river to the sea; Zionists leave, our land is Arab and free,” the students chanted in Arabic, according to a video recording and translation released by the right-wing Zionist group Im Tirtzu. The students — who are affiliated with the Joint List coalition in the Israeli parliament — called Israel a “terrorist” state and described “death” as “better than humiliation.”

The rally was attended by Yousef Jabareen, a member of Knesset from the Joint List. “Keep on fighting for coexistence. We should be proud of our struggle,” Jabareen urged protesters, according to a Jerusalem Post reporter who shared footage of the protest.
