Unlike in the USA, college students in Israel are showing some common sense

Even here in Israel, there's creeps on campus, and students are demanding a certain professor be booted out for calling on Joe Biden to stop selling arms to Israel:
Students from Sapir College are demanding that the administration immediately fire a lecturer who signed a petition calling on U.S. President Joe Biden to stop supplying arms to Israel.

Students from the college's Communications Department stated in their letter that a lecturer from the department, Dr. Regev Nathansohn, signed a petition calling on Biden to stop the transfer of all offensive weapons and funds related to Israel in support of the claim that Israel is committing "genocide" in the Gaza Strip.

"During a difficult time, terrorists committed and are committing horrible acts, to say the least, against our brothers and sisters,"
the students wrote. In the letter, they emphasized the "kidnapped people who remain captives in Gaza and suffer unimaginable suffering, as well as the "losses that our college suffered in the October 7 attack, and throughout the years as the lone bastion of learning in the Gaza envelope," adding: "We will not tolerate educators who incite and call for a boycott of our country, as well as these who slander our soldiers."

The students wrote that they learned that Nathansohn had signed the petition, and therefore demanded that he be fired immediately from his academic position at the college.
It gets worse. There's another professor at Hebrew University who denied rapes:
In a rare move, Hebrew University has suspended a law faculty lecturer, Professor Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian, due to her statements against Israel and her involvement in a petition that accuses Israel of committing genocide in Gaza. The university had previously suggested that she consider leaving her position, but she remained and continued to voice her criticisms of Israel. The university stated that her remarks cynically take advantage of her academic freedom of expression “for incitement and to create division.”

In recent television Shalhoub-Kevorkian stated: "It's time to cancel Zionism," and expressed doubt about the reported rape incidents on October 7, suggesting that any lie would be used to further a narrative. "They started with babies, they continued with rape, and they will continue with a million other lies. We stopped believing them, I hope the world stops believing them,” she said.

In response to her statements, Knesset member Sharren Haskel wrote to the Education Ministry, the Council for Higher Education, and the management of the Hebrew University, demanding clarifications and suggesting that the university consider dismissing Shalhoub-Kevorkian from her position. Following this, the professor was suspended.
Worst part is that this particular professor appears to have been reinstated:
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem said Wednesday that it will reinstate Prof. Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian, who was suspended after a series of inflammatory statements, including remarks that were seen as denying that Hamas terrorists raped women during their devastating October 7 attack on southern Israel.

The university said in a statement that its rector Prof. Tamir Sheafer met with Shalhoub-Kevorkian and that during their conversation the professor “clarified that as a feminist researcher, she believes the victims and doesn’t doubt their claims and she did not deny that there were incidents of rape on October 7.”

She was not requested to walk back her claim that Israel was committing genocide in Gaza, the Haaretz daily reported.

The university said that, following the clarification, it found no obstacle to reinstating Shalhoub-Kevorkian, and she will continue to teach in the School of Social Work and Social Welfare.
The part about "feminist" is telling, since she's indicating she's the kind of leftist who could take a selective position in who or how to believe, and if it involves Islamofascism, she won't. Needless to say, that kind of biased approach is exactly what's led to the horror story much of Europe's become, and not limited to there either. And of course, there are, unfortunately, women and men who lie about sexual assault (Potiphar's wife in the biblical era, for example), and feminists who support those kind of people do no favours for actual victims. Being a "feminist" doesn't make one a saint or prove they're responsible people, and this repellent creep certainly served as an example of one whom no decent person should have anything to do with. That the university's going lenient with her is disgraceful, and she should not continue employment there. Come to think of it, nobody sensible should waste money studying there if that's how they're going to act.

Update: in a related subject, a captured jihadist confessed to raping a girl on October 7.
