Israeli Students Cancel Speech by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights: “She is Anti-Semitic”

Alternative Information Center | 06 February 2011

Students at Israel’s Bar Ilan University cancelled a planned speech by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Ms. Navi Pillay, claiming that she is “anti-Semitic.”


Commissioner Pillay was invited by Bar Ilan University to speak at its Faculty of Law. University students affiliated with the right-wing “Forum for Eretz Israel” plastered the campus with posters against Pillay and sent a sharply worded letter of protest to the university’s administration.

“Ms. Pillay stands at the head of a commission…which is biased and tendentious in everything concerning the Israeli-Arab conflict,” the letter stated. “This commission explicitly promotes an anti-Jewish, anti-Israeli and anti-Zionist agenda, and a large number of her statements concerning Israel as like blood libels of the worst kind.”

Examples noted in the letter include Pillay’s statements that during Israel’s military attack on the Gaza Strip in December 2008-January 2009 (Operation Cast Lead), Israel bombed hospitals for no reason and in several cases, soldiers killed Palestinians in cold blood. According to Israel’s daily Israel Hayom, the letter also contends that a report issued by Pillay concerning these military attacks repeat contentions of the Goldstone Commission that Israel committed war crimes.

“Just as the university would not allow a Holocaust denier to speak, there is no room to provide a platform for an anti-Semitic personality such as her.”

Bar Ilan University failed to respond to questions in this matter.

  1. Anyone who doesn’t march lock step in agreement with the illegal entity that is Israel as it blatantly stands in violation of its own Jewish State UN181, it own self imposed commitment UN242, its own declaration of Independence as well as some 250UN res; Anyone who doesn’t condone Israel’s trial by missiles, incarceration without trial and ghettoizing and indiscriminate bombing of unarmed Palestinian civilians with wp and dm is anti-Jewish, anti-Israeli and anti-Zionist. Shielded by ONE US veto from sanctions, so pray tell, what’s new?

  2. If one is a Zionist, claims the pathological mass murder of Palestinians during Cast Lead wasn’t a war crime, and that Israel should be above criticism; they are holocaust deniers and speak ill of Israel by their example to such a degree, that they are the glaring instigators of whatever anti-Semitic opinion is entering into the minds of college students and their younger brothers and sisters worldwide.

    No shame, no democracy, no decency, no respect due to Eretz Israel. Keep it up!
