What is the share of Israeli academics in the distorted perception we saw? In American academia

Since October 7, there has been a lively and vital discussion regarding the failures and omissions that led to the terrible event. This week, the State Audit Committee held a discussion on the auditor’s report from 2016, which discussed the “diplomatic-media struggle in the boycott movement and the manifestations of anti-Semitism abroad”, and revealed a lack of cooperation between the bodies dealing with the issue. It is incorrect to say that no lessons have been learned from 2016 until today, but when Jews are murdered on the streets of the USA just because they dared to wave the Israeli flag, it is tempting to blame the government bodies that deal with foreign policy, advocacy and the fight against anti-Semitism. While the chairman of the committee went back and blamed the bodies And pinning the problems on the lack of a “comprehensive” body, he completely ignored other failings. In 2014, I participated in one of the Knesset committees as a representative of an advocacy organization regarding the academic boycott of Israel. I said then that as a doctoral candidate I had only two options: to write a post-Zionist doctorate in Israel or an anti-Zionist doctorate abroad. Everyone nodded in agreement, but no one really understood the magnitude of the danger. Antisemitism does not grow out of nowhere. In the Middle Ages it was transported by clerics, and in modern times there were mainly governments that led riots among the Jews. Today we see how academia is washed away, enabling and encouraging violent demonstrations that call for the extermination of Jews. Where does this come from? For decades, a post-colonialist wave of thinkers like Franz Fanon spread throughout the world, and when he arrived For Israel, Israeli researchers decided to “dress up” the local story about the theory that divides the world into the oppressed and the oppressed. They began to spread a completely false narrative according to which Zionism is a colonialist movement, the State of Israel is the oppressor, and Judaism is white supremacy.
