"We sense that academic freedom in Israel's higher education system is in severe danger. Closure of this department [of politics in Ben Gurion University] constitutes the first instance, but certainly not the last, unless the current trend is halted."
(by More than 300 faculty members of academic institutions all over Israel, September 2012)

"If you want to go to a university where the government decides what kind of subjects are fit for discussion, I suggest you apply to a school in North Korea."
(by Michael Bloomberg, February 2013)
