Several weeks ago, graffiti reading “Zionism is terrorism and imperialism” appeared in the tunnels. Later, the word Zionism was crossed out and replaced by the word Islam.
The striking out of “Zionism” and its replacement by “Islam” demonstrates a deep conceptual confusion (and, frankly, an embarrassing one for a university) about the difference between a religion and a political ideology. Zionism is a form of Jewish nationalism. As a political persuasion, it is not in the same category as Islam or Judaism.
