As the debate over Ben-Gurion University’s politics department continues, Meretz head Zehava Gal-On declared on Saturday that “the Likud wants to scalp the academia and show it off to [Likud activist] Moshe Feiglin’s camp during the primary.”

BGU’s political science department has strongly divided the Left and Right, as the issue has been very much politicized in the past few weeks.

The department has been criticized for the radical left-wing opinions of some of its faculty members, by rightwing organizations such as the Zionist NGO Im Tirzu – which called the program “unbalanced” and “very disturbing.”
