Because Israeli universities are institutionally and deeply complicit in the violation of Palestinian rights, including their academic freedoms. Israeli universities operate in the service of the Israeli state, including its security state and military-industrial complex. Some, like Ariel University and parts of Hebrew University Mt. Scopus in East Jerusalem, are built directly on Palestinian land under military occupation, as recognized by international law. Tel-Aviv University, Ben Gurion University, and the Israel Institute of Technology develop the technological capacities and military doctrines that are used in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including in Israeli military offensives for which Israel has been denounced by the UN as committing war crimes. Among the targets of these doctrines and technologies are Palestinian universities, which are subject to closures, raids, and bombardments by the Israeli military, and the abduction and torture of students and faculty. At Israeli universities themselves, Palestinian students have faced escalating suppression, interrogations, and violent arrests by campus security as well as by Israeli security forces. Israeli universities are directly complicit in and willingly support violations of Palestinian rights and academic freedoms, both on their own campuses and in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.
