At Our University, "Is Antizionism Antisemitism?" Panel Has Been Held

Having reacted to the occupation with statements, actions, boycotts, and discourses since the occupying Israel launched its attacks against Palestine, our university continues its academic studies to understand the Palestinian issue.

Our academic studies on Palestine continue.
A panel named "Is Antizionism Antisemitism?" has been held by our University's Jerusalem and Palestine Studies Application and Research Center
Postgraduate students from Jerusalem and Palestine Studies Application and Research Center Abdülhamit TÜRK, Barış OKTAY, Dilan VARGÜN and Dounia ALAN attended to the panel moderated by our rector Prof. Dr. İbrahim Özcoşar.
Topics such as “Non-Zionist Jewish Sects, Reasons and Beliefs”, "Is Zionism a Reaction or Construction?", "The Emergence of Antisemitism and Its Historical Context" and "Judaism and Zionism, Differences and Intersections" have been presented.
Özcoşar: “We Must Establish a Strong Discourse Against Zionism Propaganda”.
Moderating the panel “Is Anti-Zionism, which says that the logic that tries to equate anti-Zionism with Anti-Semitism aims to silence all voices speaking the truth and truth in the world, Anti-Semitism?”, our Rector Prof. Dr. İbrahim Özcoşar noted that we need to establish a language and discourse that can strongly tell the world that the concepts of Anti-Zionism and Anti-Semitism are not the same.
Our Rector Özcoşar also stated that they will continue their studies on Palestine in the academic field through the works of Jerusalem and Palestine Studies Application and Research Center and thanked the students for their sensitivity.
