MK  Henin Zuebi (Balad) came to meet with the Balad student club in Haifa University. During her visits, verbal confrontations broke out between Balad-supporting students and Jewish students, who tried to block her entrance to the university. The Jews, some of them Im Tirzu activists, shouted at the Arab students “terrorists” and “go to Gaza”. The Im Tirzu activists sang the anthem and held, inter alia, a sign saying, in Hebrew and Arabic, “Welcome to the State of Israel – the State of the Jews”. (Hebrew)
