'Free Gaza's Halper Never was a Professor

Jeff Halper, who has been described in international and Israeli media as a professor of anthropology at Ben Gurion University, never served in that capacity, according to university officials. He was an outside lecturer "for a total of two semesters" at Ben Gurion, several years ago, they said.

The university objected to the use of the term professor with his name and added that "he cannot claim he was a "faculty member of our institution, much less a tenured professor."
