A Land Day lecture by Mohammed Kena’ana at Tel Aviv University
was cancelled after protests by student members of Right Wing and far
Right parties. They forced the university administrators to retreat
from their earlier commitment to free speech in a move praised by censorship
promoting group, Im Tirzu.

Kena’ana had served a prison sentence for passing information to Hezbollah.
Solidarity Against Fascism at TAU said, “It is a call against
freedom of expression and pluralism, some of the most important values
of a democratic society,…Kena’ana is a free Israeli citizen
who has already served his sentence.”
