Hebrew U Protest Against Recruiting of Christian Arabs


A demonstration took place, Tuesday afternoon at the Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem against the recruiting of Christian Arabs to the Israel Defense Forces.

The university told Arutz Sheva that the protest was not coordinated ahead of time with school officials and was taking place against the rules. A university source said, "The demonstrators refused to identify themselves. The school allows demonstrations when coordinated ahead of time and in an orderly manner but that's not how it was in this case. Police are at the scene and dealing with the incident."
