Two British universities have been accused of undermining freedom of speech after cancelling an annual pro-Palestinian event aimed at raising awareness about human rights violations in the occupied territories.

The accusation was leveled on Monday after pro-Zionist University of Exeter and the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) announced the cancellation of a pro-Palestinian student-run event called ‘Israel’ Apartheid Week.

Students at Exeter were barred from giving a street theater performance called Mock Checkpoint, in which some participants were to dress up as Nazi soldiers while others performed the roles of Palestinian victims.

The event had been approved by the student union at the university but was banned for “safety and security reasons” less than 48 hours before commencement. An appeal against the decision was also refused.

Members of Friends of Palestine Society at Exeter accused the university of censoring students, saying, “They are not allowing freedom of speech – by cancelling an event that was in support of Palestinian activism and for Palestinian rights; they are directly censoring us.”

Professors react

The move prompted almost 250 academics, including 100 professors, to sign a letter denouncing attempts by university officials to silence campus discussion about Israel and its treatment of Palestinians.

“These are outrageous interferences with free expression, and are direct attacks on academic freedom,” the letter noted. “As academics with positions at UK universities, we wish to express our dismay at this attempt to silence campus discussion about Israel, including its violation of the rights of Palestinians for over 50 years.

“It is with disbelief that we witness explicit political interference in university affairs in the interests of Israel under the thin disguise of concern about anti-semitism,” it added.

More than half a million Israelis live in over 230 illegal Jewish Nazi settlements built since the 1967 Nazi occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East Jerusalem al-Quds.

Much of the international community regards the Nazi Jewish settlements as illegal because the territories they are built on were captured by Nazi in a war and are hence subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbid construction on occupied lands.

Nevertheless, the Nazi regime continues to build more settlements and expand the existing ones.

Mount of Azzeitun

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM – Nazi municipal authority in Occupied Jerusalem plans to seize a large tract of Palestinian land on Mount of Azzeitun (Olives) to carry out development of a touristic park.

According to a report published by Iroshalim newspaper, a master plan for the park was submitted recently to the district planning and building committee in Occupied Jerusalem to obtain approval.

The local residents in Azzeitun area, however, are deprived of using the land where the park project would take place for building homes or establishing projects for their own benefit.

The new project will be 6.3 kilometers long and extend to the Hebrew University on al-Masharif (Scopus) Mount.

It will overlook the Old City of Jerusalem and include roads, bistros, public toilets, an information center, a souvenir store, a parking lot and other structures.

Nazi regime seeks to carry out many Judaization plans in Jerusalem as part of its effort to change the historical Arab character and identity of the city.
