Absolutely unconscionable! Close to 25 percent of the student body at Boston University are Jewish students. President Trump and AG Barr must take significant action against the anti-Israel Left, because they are destroying campus life for American college students. One day a Jewish student is going to get killed on campus.
Boston University Considering Hiring Professor Who Accuses Israel of ‘Rape,’ ‘Systematic Massacres’
By Algemeiner, November 8, 2019:
Boston University has been considering hiring an anti-Israel postdoctoral associate as a professor, reported Americans for Peace and Tolerance.
While the school has yet to hire Sarah Ihmoud, the offer is “imminent,” according to APT.
Ihmoud presented her paper, “Sexual Violence, Women’s Bodies, and Israeli Settler Colonialism,” to the university. In it, she alleges that the “rape and killing of Palestinian women was a central aspect of Israeli troops’ systematic massacres and evictions during the destruction of Palestinian villages in 1948.”
She also wrote, “Israeli officials’ repressive policies and incitement against the Palestinian people work to empower and embolden Israeli settler society to embody the power of the state and viciously attack Palestinians. This is clearly exhibited in the attacks on Palestinian women’s bodies inside Al-Aqsa mosque these last weeks in Jerusalem, by both settler publics empowered by the state’s military protection, and members of the state security forces.”
APT stated that “the claims made are false,” and that “the paper, like all of Ihmoud’s writings, is not simply anti-Israeli, it is blatantly antisemitic and unsupported by any facts and does not merit ‘academic scholarship’ status.”
It continued, “Boston University should not hire a person who portrays Jews as rapists, Jewish leaders and academics as promoting rape … and more. This hateful propaganda, posing as scholarship, is no different from The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the crudest German junk science proving that Jews are genetically inferior to Aryans.”
Boston University President Robert Brown could not respond to a request for comment, as the university is in the midst of hiring-consideration reviews.
