You always have to fact check Israel. They do or say anything to further their state. Nothing wrong with that, but you still can’t trust them to be honest. I know of several Universities that have had Israeli diplomats speak:. This is just a couple:
Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren, who presented at the University of California at Irvine. ( 2010)
Consul-General David Siegel spoke at San Diego State University campus. (2015)
I don’t keep a list of this stuff, but if you check, you’ll find others.
