In a meeting Monday with British Jewish philanthropist Michael Gross Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman stated that Jewish philanthropist should work to support Zionist causes, not the opposite.

Gross, who was planning a large donation to Ben Gurion University until he learned thy were hosting a conference that supports BDS organizations, stated,"Battling BDS should begin in Israel. It cannot be that Israeli universities which receive funding from the state provide a platform for those acting against Israel worldwide and supporting BDS.”
