I think that there should be an academic boycott by Israeli academic circles of Tel Aviv University, because it has the highest concentration in the country of anti-Israel academics, who have links with organizations abroad that tirelessly conspire to isolate, harm, and dismantle Israel piecemeal. As Miche Norman pointed out, Tel Aviv University is built on the site of an abandoned Arab village, Sheikh Muwannis, (and so are a number of far-left ideological kibbutzim), whereas Ariel College stands on what was always a barren hilltop. It also has been pointed out that no universities existed in the West Bank and Gaza before '67, yet under Israeli rule 6 have been established (for Palestinians only). Obviously, Shlomo Sand believes that only the 450,000+ Jews in the territories and E. Jerusalem have no right to the otherwise universal right of education...just like the far leftists lobby against the transfer of Gaza strip settlers to Nitzanim area because it might harm the 'rare ecosystems' there...just like they lobby against the right of Jews to establish towns in the Negev because it infringes on Bedouin grazing land...just like they are against the 'Judaization' of the Galilee because it harms the the delicate demographic balance with the Arabs. I only hope that the outcome of the academic boycott in the U.K. is ,rather than to harm Israel, to backfire on the careers of the likes of Ilan Pappe and other renegade Israeli "academics" who fabricated information and helped bring about this boycott.
