If Ben-Gurion University of the Negev doesn’t take steps “to put an end to the anti-Zionist tilt” in its politics and government department, Im Tirtzu will work to persuade donors in Israel and abroad to stop funding the university, the organization threatened in a letter to university president Prof. Rivka Carmi last month.
The group said it would ask donors to put contributions in escrow until “this tilt in the makeup of the department’s faculty and the content of its syllabi has been corrected.”
