Hebrew University in Jerusalem has reinstated Professor Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian, the internationally renowned feminist Palestinian professor, who was suspended earlier this month after saying in an interview Israel was committing genocide in Gaza. Hebrew University reportedly did not demand she recant those remarks, but did reinstate her after she clarified her remarks on reports of sexual assaults during the October 7 attacks. Her suspension had been met with protests from students and faculty of the school. Click here to see our interview with Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian.
