British powerful Israel lobby, the Board of Deputies of British Jews, has started a campaign against University of Exeter, which is due to hold an academic conference, entitled, Settlers Colonization in Palestine on October 2-4, 2015.
Lobby’s CEO, Gillian Merron has called upon the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), UK’s government funded organization, to cancel its annual funding of £247,535 to the university.
Earlier this year, the Board of Deputies, ran a similar anti-freedom of speech campaign to get a conference canceled at the University of Southampton.

Several Zionist regime ministries and Jewish lobbying groups abroad spends hundred of million dollars to finance the pro-Israel Campus thugs.

The four academics have one thing in common – they all have authored books on Israel-Palestine conflict.
On August 9, 2015, Adam Levick, writing at UKMediaWatch (formerly Jewish CiF Watch) condemned the conference as an effort to delegitimize Israel by “radical historian Illan Pappe and Dr. Svirsky who in his book After Israel appears to call for an end to the ‘Zionist Project’ in Palestine.”
On November, 8, 2011, pro-Israeli picketers tried to hound Israeli-born British author and musician, Gilad Atzmon, prior to his speech at the Exeter University. Watch a video below.
The United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Israel are all products of western settler colonialism. These countries are build on the death and destruction of indigenous people. Another common thing among these five countries, is they all are occupied by Zionist-controlled governments.
