Hebrew U distances itself from professor who said Israel tests weapons on Palestinian kids

Hebrew University is distancing itself from one of its professors who claimed in a talk last week that Israel tests its weapons on Palestinian children in order to help boost its international arms sales.

In a statement, the university says “the views expressed by Prof. Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian don’t represent or express in any way the views of the Hebrew University or the university administration, but are her personal opinion that reflects only her views.”

Shalhoub-Kevorkian presented the claim at New York’s Columbia University as part of the results of a study she conducted in Israel, according to a report and audio recordings carried by Army Radio.
