Baptists for Israel Institute is a Independent Baptist Fundie school located in Ontario, Ohio [1]. They are also engaged in the Christian Zionist ideology [2]. The easiest way to put it, they ignore the human rights violations against the Palestinian people. They have no accreditation at all.

Academics[edit]

While not as bad as Patriot Bible "University", this place is far from meeting decent academic standards. BII offers a Bachelors and Masters "degrees" in Israel Studies. It is not as impressive as it sounds. Both degree programs consist of a few classes, living on a Kibbutz, an archaeological dig, museum tours and Bible seminars [3] .

Basically it is a glorified tour of Israel. However, there are legitimate schools that offer study options in Israel. However you still have to complete an actual college degree. For example, American University in Washington DC runs the Center for Israel Studies which offers trips to Israel [4]. Keep in mind that American University has regional accreditation and real academic programs [5].
