|[Weizmann] Kobi Snitz's interview full of misinformation and deception with regard to Israel's treatment of the Palestinians|
Kobi Snitz (Weizmann Institute) is a leading activist with Anarchists Against the Wall,†which has†a full complement of activists at home and abroad. On a recent trip to London, Snitz gave an interview full of misinformation and deception with regard to Israel's treatment of the Palestinians.† He broadened†his repertoire to include the recent disturbances against illegal African migrants, without mentioning the rash of rapes and other crimes in Tel Aviv that had triggered the event.† †To hear Snitz tell it, Israel is a racist society†whose citizens†randomly attack black people in the street. †
Like†some other highly activist faculty, Snitz can afford his extensive political work: he†is a member of the Institute's Department of Neurobiology;†yet,†since obtaining†a doctorate almost a decade ago, he published some three articles. This is very skimpy record, especially as compared to other members of his research team.††
Once again, the Israeli taxpayer is called to subsidize a political activist in the name of an expansive definition of academic freedom.
