Brittisk akademiker vägrar svara enkla frågor från en israelisk skoltjej för att hon hatar judar och är med i BDS, även om hon själv är jude. Där finns många exempel på självhatande judar från Dror feiler upp.
Den som inte ser EUs trend mot Nazism med sin bojkott av Israeliska produkter på exakt samma sätt som de gamla Nazisterna har ett annat exempel här.

An academic refused to answer an Israeli schoolgirl’s questions about horses, citing her support for the BDS anti-Israel boycott movement as the reason.
13-year-old Shachar Rabinovitch sent an email to American-born academic Marsha Levine, who is herself Jewish, asking for some information about horses for a school assignment.
”I know you are a very important person and I’ve read your article about horses (Domestication, Breed Diversification and Early History of the Horse) and I love horses very much and it will be an honour if you will answer my questions,” Rabinovitch wrote.
But she received a jarring response from the 40-year-old former Cambridge lecturer, who said she would not answer the child’s question because she opposed the existence of the State of Israel.
”I’ll answer your questions when there is peace and justice for Palestinians in Palestine,” she wrote back, in a response republished on Facebook by Rabinovitch’s mother.
”I am a member of Jews for Justice for Palestinians,” she continued, referring to a small, anti-Zionist fringe group. ”I support boycott, divestment, sanctions. You might be a child, but if you are old enough to write to me, you are old enough to learn about Israeli history and how it has impacted on the lives of Palestinian people.”
”Maybe your family has the same views as I do, but I doubt it,” she concluded, attaching a link to her organization’s website.
Shachar’s mother Shamir expressed her shock at the callous response.
”The reply that was sent to a 13-year-old girl is unbelievable, a girl who has not yet managed to kill anyone and actually is quite supportive of world peace and brotherhood,” she said.
When approached for comment by the UK Jewish Chronicle, Levine angrily defended her position, and then went on to brand Jews as ”the new Nazis.”
”I didn’t ask her to email me. I don’t know how she got my email address. I can do whatever I want. I didn’t invite her to email me. If she wanted to read anything I had written she could find it on the internet,” she said.
”I want this girl not to worry about horses. I don’t need people emailing me. I’m not an academic anymore. My research was all in the past. I’m doing other things now. I don’t see any obligation to further her ego or make her feel better about herself. I don’t think it’s about her – I think it’s about her parents.
”Benjamin Netanyahu wants ethnic cleansing. The Jews have become the Nazis. Jews are behaving just like the people who treated them. It’s not all Israelis or all Jews.”
Meanwhile, a Cambridge University spokesperson distanced the university from Levine in a statement to the Chronicle.
”She is no longer part of the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research and is not employed by the university. The views expressed are her own,” he said.
