"When the British Association of University Teachers declared a boycott of two Israeli universities last year (later reversed), it turned out that the main initiator was none other than a Senior Lecturer at the University of Haifa, Ilan Pappe, who has spent most of his academic career collaborating with anti-Israel propagandists around the world. Pappe is best renowned for inventing, together with a graduate student of his, an imaginary "massacre" of Arabs near Haifa that Pappe insists took place in 1948. Never mind that no one has ever come up with a scrap of evidence that any such massacre occurred, and never mind that the graduate student in question admitted in court that the story was a fabrication! Pappe is on record calling for Israel to be eliminated as a Jewish state altogether. Much of his "academic record" consists of anti-Israel political propaganda. He is still on the University of Haifa faculty and continues to draw a salary paid for by the Israeli taxpayer."
