Breaking News – Ben Gurion University loses
multi-million dollar contribution because of the anti-Israel
activities of Neve Gordon conducted under BGU's auspices
Maariv June 23, 2012 reports (
http://www.nrg.co.il/online/1/ART2/380/004.html) that Ben Gurion
University's cabbagehead president Rivka Carmi has just announced
that the university lost a multi-million dollar contribution that
was intended for development of the university library and other
infrastructure investment because the donor was outraged at the
treasonous activities being conducted by Neve Gordon, a lecturer in
political science at the University, including his open calls for
world boycotts of Israel. According to the story in Maariv, the
donor conditioned his or her contribution on Gordon being dismissed.
Carmi refused to initiate dismissal proceedings against Gordon.
Carmi claims there is no "legal basis" for firing Gordon. She failed

In an interview with Maariv, Carmi discussed
the stigma that has been attached to Ben Gurion University as being
a center for anti-Israel radicalism and sedition. She expressed
sorrow that this has become Ben Gurion University's public image.
She noted that the leftist extremists are "a very small group,"
failing to note that every single member of the politics department
is a radical leftist, and other departments at the university are
not much less extremist.
