Special Isracampus Report:
Open Political Indoctrination, Brainwashing, and Politicization at the Ramat Gan Academic Center

Special Isracampus Report
14/9/2012

The Ramat Gan Academic Center of Law and Business is a third-rate community college that operates in Israel. It consists of a third-rate business school and a fourth rate law school. It also has a new official approach to higher education. It is seeking to indoctrinate its students officially into far-leftist Marxist violence and anti-Israel radicalism. The college has announced (source: Makor Rishon Sept 14, 2012) that it will be granting large fellowship grants to all students in the college who sign up to work as members of extremist anti-Israel "activist" groups. Among the eligible groups a student may join to receive the fellowship is the violent pro-terror "Anarchists against the Wall," the pro-terror Communist Party front group "Machsom Watch (Checkpoint Watch)," B'Tselem (in the news this week because Hussein abu Hussein, a member of its board, insists Israel is more evil than Nazi Germany), a group seeking to force Israel to admit unlimited numbers of African infiltrators, and a few other extremist organizations. No Zionist or conservative organizations are included in the list of eligible activist groups. The fellowships given to these leftist activists are for 10,000 shekels, which is almost as high as annual tuition at a major Israeli university.

Organizations from the non-Left, including the Im Tirtzu student organization and the "Legal Forum for the Land of Israel," have sent letters of complaint to the officers at the college, who responded by stonewalling. They see nothing wrong with their college serving as a North Korean style camp for anti-Israel political indoctrination. Curiously, not a single one of the tenured leftists lobbying against Ariel University has had a single word to say about all this.

Given the open indoctrination into anti-Israel leftism and Marxism, not only does the Ramat Gan College deserve to receive no public funds, but it should not be accredited at all as an institution of higher learning in Israel.
