Professors for a Strong Israel is a group of academics in Israel.[1] They describe themselves as a "non-partisan organization of academics united by a shared concern for the security and the Jewish character of the State of Israel."[2] They have been described as "right wing" by Haaretz and "extreme right wing" by David Newman.[1][3]

The group was founded in 1988 but stepped up its activities after the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993.[4]

They are opposed to the creation of a Palestinian state[5] and consider the removal of Israelis from Gaza to have been ethnic cleansing.[6]

Notable members include Nobel Prize winner Robert Aumann and Knesset member Arie Eldad.
