Israel Matzav: Biting the hand that feeds you

Biting the hand that feeds you

Arab students at Hebrew University rioted on Tuesday in protest against the existence of the State of Israel.

Although Hebrew University was founded before the State's existence, it is now (and has been for more than 60 years) a State school, with tuition heavily subsidized by the Israeli taxpayer. Tuition at Hebrew U is approximately $3,000 per year, for an education that is on a level that is comparable to the best universities in the West.

In the last decade, six graduates of Hebrew University have received Nobel prizes. In 2008, Hebrew University was ranked 93rd in THE -QS World University rankings. They only bother to rank the top 200.

So these Arabs are getting a top notch education at the expense of the Israeli taxpayer, and they're rioting against the very existence of the State (as opposed to peacefully protesting its policies - to which I have no objection) that's collecting the taxes to pay for their education.

Please remind me why we're educating these Arab rioters and why the rioters aren't going to be expelled from the university.
