Ben-Dahan to Tel Aviv U: Don't Let the Terrorist Come


Member of Knesset Eli Ben-Dahan called on the president of Tel Aviv University, Sunday, not to allow convicted terrorist Mohammed Canaana to enter the campus on Monday, for a scheduled speaking appearance.

Noting the 30 months Canaana served for passing information to Lebanese terror group Hezbollah and cooperating with terror groups in the Samarian (Shomron) Palestinian Authority city of Jenin during the second intifada uprising, Rabbi Ben-Dahan said, "It's absurd that a university in the state of Israel agrees to host a terrorist...who incites and operates against the state to speak to students," adding that it was improper for him to set foot on campus.
