Right-wing student group Im Tirzu called on heads of universities in Israel to limit pro-Palestinian groups from holding "inciting" demonstrations and rallies on campus, and to expel students who "will be involved in incitement and supporting terrorism," a statement from the group said.

Their request came in response to the arrest of five Arab-Israelis from a northern Israeli town.

According to the group, the allowance of schools such as Haifa University, Ben-Gurion University, and Hebrew University in Jerusalem to stage protests where activists chant "We will redeem Palestine in spirit and blood" and "Hamas Hamas will take the streets" has radicalized Arab-Israeli students.
