Several dozen Jewish and Arab students protested Tuesday morning at Haifa University against an academic conference titled ‘The Demographic Problem and Israel’s Demographic Policies’, describing the conference as a gathering of racists.

Protesters, who were prevented from entering the conference hall by campus security, sat down outside the hall and displayed banners saying:  ‘licensed racist’ and ‘the bearer of this certificate completed with honors an advanced course in racism at Haifa University.’

Inside the Hall, conference participants were discussing a forecast that Arabs will constitute the majority of Israel’s population with several decades.
