Representatives of grassroots Zionist movement Im Tirtzu sent a request to the university administration, to respond immediately to the anti-Semitic symbol on campus.
In an appeal to the rector, Im Tirtzu wrote in part: “The fact that students are exposed to this racist, Nazi symbol at an institution that is supposed to be the bastion of tolerant, humane, critical thinking is utterly shocking. Needless to say, the Hebrew University in the State of Israel is no place to tolerate anti-Semitism. We ask for your prompt attention to this incident.”
"We should not underestimate the potential for this to lead to violence against Jewish students. This is a clear call to murder Jews. The writing is on the wall," said Shoval.
