Israeli students in the UK hide where they are from....

The campus is not a friendly place for Jews these days...
Israeli students at British universities have spoken about the "hostility" they feel on campus. One says she hides her nationality.

In the past year alone, police have been called to anti-Israel protests at Manchester and Edinburgh universities and the London School of Economics.

Manchester Law student Shir Gomes de Mesquita, 20 from Zur Moshe, near Netanya, said: "I feel that I have to be cautious before disclosing my nationality if I'm by myself or surrounded by non-Jews."

She chose Manchester because of its "active Jewish community" and was taught at school in Israel about the "active delegitimisation" of Israel in UK universities.

"The way things are going, Israeli officials may never be able to visit UK campuses and Israeli students will just feel more alone than ever.

"The UK government and university administration has made it possible for a group of students to feel unsafe away from their homes. I'm going to go back to Israel at the end of the year to serve in the army."

Doron Bar-Gil, 27, from Jerusalem, studying for his master's in global politics at LSE, said: "During a class on Israel's policy in the West Bank, a few people, who knew I was Israeli, just kept staring at me and made me feel very uncomfortable.

"There were some other events when people were on the main road with bottles filled with fake blood, as part of a campaign to take Israel's goods from campus.

Doron Bar Gil; why did you chose LSE? Its reputation runs ahead of it screaming allahu akhbar! I attended a meeting there with a friend, where Gavri Bargil from the Israeli embassy gave a vile and pathetic "talk" about how the 2-state solution for Israel was the right one. He refused to answer our questions. There were about 10 other Jewish students who helped shout us down and one Arab woman who pretended to be Spanish. It was like a room full of Jews saying, don't worry, gas chambers are a clean way to die!!
When you research a college you find these things out. I don't understand these self-hating Jews who go straight for the most anti-semitic colleges: is it a death wish?
