In Israel, students and teachers oscillate between sadness and anger. Whether they learn or teach, they share one observation: those who demonstrate in universities abroad do not understand, for a large part of them, the complexity of the issues at stake in the war between Israel and Hamas. “At Sciences Po Paris, they chant the slogan “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free”.

The level of ignorance is reaching new heights!” annoys Ilan Greilsammer, professor of political science at Bar-Ilan University in Tel Aviv.
