Americans for Peace and Tolerance (APT) has released a 30-minute video in which Northeastern University professors promote anti-Semitic and anti-Israel views in their classroom lectures.

According to Dr. Charles Jacobs, APT President, one tenured professor in the Boston-based school consistently defamed Israel, and his department of Middle East Center for Peace, Culture and Development “has been built to inculcate students with a hostile and demonized view of the Jewish state, with repeated comparisons to the Nazis.”

“As the video shows, one professor in the Department has also introduced the students and the university to virulent anti-Semitic Arab officials and religious leaders,” APT said in a press release.

In the video, a Northeastern economics professor also tells students to be proud of being called anti-Semites, and brags that for more than a decade the student body has been largely turned against Israel.

“The problem of anti-Israelism and anti-Semitism is not restricted to this campus but is a national problem that first came to wide public attention in 2004 with the controversial film ‘Columbia Unbecoming,’ which documented the intimidation of Jewish students at Columbia University,” said Jacobs. “Northeastern professors cannot be allowed to indoctrinate students and promote lies,” he added.

  • From Asia: The ignorant American leftist professor should teach what billions have been taught to us in China as children that Islam is not a religion but a totalitarian ideology! This ignorant professor is the reason your nation is declining!

  • Don’t most Lamestream Media members paint Jews and Israel devils? Doesn’t most major universities do it? Hasn’t Northeastern’s student body been protesting the recent firing of its Muslim chaplain, Abdullah Farruqq, for inciting religion-based hatred on campus? Aren’t they lobbying the Imam to start his own university, with shouts of “Farruqq U.”?

    Dream on. Politically-coerced censorship is the predominant perspective in academia. Claiming to be liberal, this narrow, inflexible, intolerant, bigoted belief system is, in fact, fascistic. Their worldview makes it very clear that a double standard is not only possible, but necessary. Under their writings and statements, some people are inherently good, and others inherently evil. Unfortunately, Jews, Israel, and, in fact, liberal thought, are inherently evil. These academics will protect unto death the opinions of the professors profiled in this video to spew their hatred and bigotry, as clearly demonstrated by this video. To those of the politically-coerced censorship crowd, the hateful beliefs of these ‘professors’ is unfortunate but necessary. President Aoun will never do a thing to stop these hatemongers. At best he will turn his head away and pretend not to notice. At worst, he will defend these believers that anti-Semitism is good, as examples of academic integrity.

    British Jewish Star Daniel Radcliffe Hopes New Movie About Neo-Nazis Will Spark Dialogue to Defeat Antisemitic Rhetoric

    Racist and antisemitic rhetoric supported by white supremacists can be defeated by opening channels for meaningful dialogue, British-Jewish actor Daniel Radcliffe said, ahead of the release of his new film, in which he plays an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a neo-Nazi group. “[White supremacist ideologies] have more power the less we talk about them. So hopefully this does start a kind of conversation, which would be a tiny part of a much larger conversation that needs to happen,” the actor, 27, told The […]

    Ben-Gurion University Institute Tackles Water Shortages, Hygiene in Developing Countries

    JNS.org – Israeli water experts believe that by 2050, almost half of the world’s population will live in countries with a chronic water shortage. What’s causing the shortfall is population growth, which leads to a greater demand for food, increased pollution and climate instability, according to Prof. Noam Weisbrod, director of the Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research (ZIWR) in the Jacob Blaustein Institute for Desert Research at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. In Israel’s Negev Desert, which has long been plagued […]
