Hebrew U Correctly Prevents Leftist Incitement on Campus

The largely Arab and communist Hadash party was going to hold a 'conference' to commemorate 'dreadful and damned Zionist war', referring to Operation Cast Lead on the Hebrew University campus.

Hebrew University quashed it.

"The institution permits political activity as long as it does not violate Israeli law and does not go against the university's principles."

Just like some rightists (for instance, Yoaz Hendel, recognize a hard line needs to be taken against rightist incitement, it's also important to recognize the same regarding leftist incitement. I think that both of them, given the context that is Israel, would be blockable under similar U.S. standards like Brandenburg
