A professor at Bar Ilan University, Prof Steinberg presented a report
to MPs and ministers that referred to peace groups as “Trojan

He has reserved special criticism for advocacy groups for the country’s

both of promoting an image of Israel as an “apartheid” state
that carries out “war crimes” and “ethnic cleansing”.
