(JNS) Arab students at Jerusalem’s Hebrew University called for “intifada” against Israel during a protest held last week at the university’s Mount Scopus campus in response to riots in Gaza.

“From Gaza a decision was made: intifada and victory; Oh, shahid, rest in your bed, we will continue the struggle; Zionists get out, our land is Arab and free,” were among the slogans chanted at the protest.

A counter-demonstration was held by activists from the Zionist organization Im Tirtzu, who waved Israeli flags and sang Israeli songs, including Israel’s national anthem “Hatikvah” and “Kudos to the IDF.”

So far, the university has taken no measures to discipline the students involved in the protests.
