Dozens of anti-BDS anti-terror posters directed at Lara Alqasem were hung and distributed on Sunday on Hebrew University’s Mount Scopus campus ahead of Alqasem’s arrival.
The posters, distributed by activists of the Zionist organization Im Tirtzu in English and Hebrew, included messages like “Lara, have you no shame?” and “Keep your BDS off my campus.”
The posters also called attention to Alqasem’s support of Rasmea Odeh, a convicted terrorist who played a key role in a 1969 bombing attack that murdered two Hebrew University students.
“You support a terrorist who murdered two Hebrew University students, and now you want to study here? We don’t want you here!” read the posters.
The posters also suggest for Alqasem to study in Gaza, Syria or Iran: “Lara, if you despise Israel so much, you are welcome to go to Gaza, Syria or Iran. They will welcome BDS and terrorist supporters like yourself with open arms.”
