Education Minister Limor Livnat yesterday stepped up her battle with Ben-Gurion University over its continued employment of Professor Lev Grinberg.

As reported in Haaretz yesterday, Livnat has notified the university she would boycott university events over the administration's refusal to take action against Grinberg, who heads the Hubert Humphrey Institute for Social Research. In an article published in a Belgian newspaper, Grinberg accused Israel of carrying out "symbolic genocide" against the Palestinians by assassinating Hamas leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.
