Has someone invited them to appear or is this publicity stunt a typical leninist propaganda moment. Let's let democracy free. We need to isnstitute referendums in israel on controversial subjects like relinquishing land we legitimately captured in a defensive war or whetehr universities should ban pseudo intellectual professors who acivley work to destroy the same university or whether tax dollars should be used to pay for a one sided politically corrupted stalinist self proclaimed cultural elite. The left will never agree to california or european style referendums in Israel for one simple reaosn. The people (at least 70%) of them cannot stomach the left or its opinions. The left can only maintain their control through the patronage system where the judges and professors pick their colleagues and make sure they are "politically correct" choices. This is the most undemocratic stalinist purported democracy there is. (And i am not suggesting that minority rights should be abridged through referendums, but these political issues are not issues of individual liberty but political philosophy).
