    The Israeli interior ministry is run by Shas, the Haredi (Ultra Orthodox) party, and it seems to be running in conformity with that party's ideology. Shas runs an educational system that encourages youngsters to study Talmud, not modern topics, and do it for the rest of their lives. not even doing military service and certainly not studying in a university which for them is just a source of dangerous heretical views. Once Shas students graduate from the school, they are so backward educationally that no university can admit them anymore. Shas would truly be delighted to have a world boycott against Israeli Academia. It will even support their claims about the uselessness of universities. To see how the interior ministry operates, just look at recent examples. An Israeli man fathered twins from a woman in India (by artificial insemination). For weeks he has been denied permission to bring them to Israel. The problem: He is homosexual and the children are goyim, so for Shas they better disappear in India. Another example is the five Druzes who were allowed to visit relatives in Syria, and now the interior ministry wouldn't let them come back home. Shas doesn't want gentiles in Eretz Yisrael of course, so perhaps the Syrian government will take the "deportees" and their families too.
