Congress of South African Trade Unions spokesperson Bongani Masuku
said, “It (BGU) has consistently refused to oppose the Israeli
government’s attempts to silence academics that support sanctions against
Israel and so it is a much compromised institution whose reputation
and credibility are in tatters.”

Masuku described BGU as “a university that actively collaborates
with the Israeli Defence Force in its enforcement of apartheid occupation
against Palestinians, by offering special privileges and services to
the army”.
