Tel Aviv University's right-wing student groups will hold a rally in Antin Square on Sunday at noon to protest the scheduled speech by a convicted terrorist to take place on Monday.

Mohammed Kana'ane was invited to speak at a conference organized by left-wing students in honor of Land Day, which commemorates the deaths of six Galilee Arabs in 1976 riots over a government decision to confiscate land.

Kana'ane served nearly five years in an Israeli prison for his involvement with Hezbollah and for funding weapons-making training.

The demonstration was expected to attract around 500 students and supporters.

Shas MK Eli Yishai condemned the scheduled speech, calling the invitation for Kana'ane to speak "an irresponsible and anti-Israeli move that sends a dangerous message."
