Teddy Katz, a Haifa University graduate student, interviewed over 100 people – Arabs and Jews – for his masters thesis about what happened at Tantura, one of the 553 coastal Palestinian villages destroyed in 1948 by the new Israeli state. According to the eyewitnesses and participants Katz interviewed, some 270-280 villagers were slaughtered in a massacre orchestrated by the Alexandroni Brigade.
Once Katz story prematurely went public, to the chagrin of Katz, Haifa University tried to disassociate itself from their graduate student and his thesis, although it had previously approved it and recommended for honors. Subsequently, Haifa University turned on tenured professor Ilan Pappe for defending Katz’ thesis.
On April 22, 2005, a week after Katz’s Olean talk in western New York, Britain’s Association of University Teachers (AUT) voted for an academic boycott of Israel, specifically citing the case of Teddy Katz and two universities, Bar Ilan and Haifa. A member of the Israeli peace group Gush Shalom, Katz toured the U.S. in a series of speaking engagements in April, 2005. (Lecture recorded April 14, 2005, Olean, New York by snowshoefilms).
- Mr. Benjamin Freedman, a Jewish industrialist born in New York, wrote in the Economic Council Letter published there of October 15 1947: “These Eastern European Jews have neither a racial nor a historic connection with Palestine. Their ancestors were not inhabitants of the Promised Land. They are the direct descendants of the people of the Khazar Kingdom. The Khazars were a non-Semitic, Turko-Mongolian tribe.” Mr. Freedman was challenged, unwisely, by a Zionist objector; he invited his challenger to go with him to the Jewish room of the New York Public Library. There they could together examine the Jewish Encyclopedia volume I pp. 1-12, and the published works of Graetz, Dubnow, Friedlander, Raisin and many other noted Jewish historians, which, as well as other non-Jewish authorities, “establish the fact beyond all possible doubt”.’
