Hebrew U's Leading Anti-Zionist
israelinsider profiles (without any compunctions about abandoning journalistic objectivity) Professor Baruch Kimmerling, of Hebrew U.
Baruch Kimmerling, a sociologist at the Hebrew University, has long been identified as one of the leading figures in the “post-Zionist” movement, better called the anti-Zionist movement – a trendy, small group of tenured far Leftists, including Ilan Pappe, Avi Shlaim, Oren Yiftachel, Uri Bar-Joseph, and until recently, Benny Morris). Kimmerling has gone so far as to endorse Palestinian terrorism against right-wing Israelis and more broadly against Israelis in general. He has also openly endorsed the use of violence.
Two books by Kimmerling appeared in 2003, one of them with a co-author, and both are getting plenty of attention. They have been widely reviewed, especially by magazines and web sites that are hostile to Israel, and have been produced in Arabic in the West Bank. Even Foreign Affairs gave sympathetic reviews to both these books.
