What Is Al Jazeera Saying About Im Tirtzu?

Al Jazeera has recently taken aim at Im Tirtzu and published a feature article on our “Know Your Professor” website, which exposed dozens of radical Israeli academics who are engaged in promoting boycotts and defaming Israel.

Im Tirtzu says

“It seems that the propaganda arm of Qatar is not so pleased with our work – a sign that we are doing a good job!”

Israel’s right-wing nationalists target left-wing academics

A pro-Zionist organisation publicised what it says are left-wing academics undermining the Israeli state.

The Israeli government has reportedly enlisted its intelligence agency to counteract the Palestinian-led campaign against Israeli oppression.

Now some academics who back the movement say they are being targeted in a so-called witch-hunt by right-wing nationalists.

Im Tirtzu says it is engaged in a continual fight to preserve the Zionist state.

But critics say naming and shaming individual professors is threatening the freedom of expression for Israeli academics.


Im Tirtzu is a Zionist non-governmental organization based in Israel. Its name is derived from an epigraph appended to the frontispiece of Theodor Herzl’s novel Altneuland, ‘if you wish it, it is no fairy-tale,’ rendered into modern Hebrew in Nahum Sokolow’s translation in 1903, as Im tirtzu ein zo agadah.
