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.
