Report: Tel Aviv U Professor Against 'Jewish State'


There's an uproar at Sapir College over comments by Professor Yehuda Shinhav of Tel Aviv University against Israel's demand to be recognized by the Palestinian Authority as a Jewish state, according to a Monday-morning report by the Yisrael Hayom daily. During a recent appearance at the western-Negev school, Professor Shinhav said, "I, as a Jew, oppose a Jewish state. It's an apocalypse for the Jews in the long run because we came here in violence."

Chief Executive Officer Matan Peleg of the Im Tirtzu Zionist organization called on the college to do some soul searching.
