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.

    How Jewish Television Pioneer Milton Berle Inspired Modern Comedy Stars

    JNS.org – Today’s comedy superstars, especially those whose careers are driven by television, may very well owe their success to pioneering Jewish entertainer Milton Berle. Born Mendel Berlinger in Manhattan in 1908, Berle became America’s first small-screen star. Aptly nicknamed “Mr. Television,” he influenced and helped promote the work of hundreds of younger comics. “Milton Berle was deceptively successful and very Jewish,” says Lawrence Epstein, author of The Haunted Smile: The Story of Jewish Comedians in America, published the year [...]

    JNS.org – Idan Ravin’s friends chipped in to buy him a humble but life-changing bar mitzvah gift—a basketball hoop his father attached to the roof of his garage. Little did his friends know that years later, he would be the personal trainer of National Basketball Association (NBA) stars Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, and Stephen Curry. Ravin’s new book, “The Hoops Whisperer: On the Court and Inside the Head of Basketball’s Best Players,” details his rise from a Jewish upbringing [...]

    10 New Hollywood Movies That Aim to Show Support for Israel (SATIRE)

    Ten major film studios are currently in production on projects that promote a decidedly pro-Israeli narrative. In famously liberal Hollywood, such a development has left mouths agape and set tongues a wagging. Since the Jewish State began defending itself from the thousands of rockets that Hamas has hurled at it – as well as ongoing terror attacks and murders, the overwhelming number of Tinseltown’s producers, directors, actors, and studio moguls have remained indifferent to the plight of millions of Israeli [...]

    Israeli Judoka Yarden Gerbi (63kg), 25, of Netanya, on Thursday lost the final round at the Judo World Cup, and her world title to Clarisse Agbegnenou of France, at a match held in Russia. “I have mixed feelings,” Gerbi told Israeli Army radio. But, “I shouldn’t assume that I’d win the world Judo championship twice in a row,” she admitted. Gerbi won gold in Rio De Janeiro last year. “When I made my decision, I knew it was going to [...]

    Surviving the Holocaust by Hiding Their Faith (REVIEW)

    “Jews Out!” was just the name of a child’s game that three little girls played in World War II Europe. But all is not as it seems because the three girls were Jewish, but hiding their true identities. In award-winning author R. D. Rosen’s riveting non-fiction work, Such Good Girls, “Jews Out!” wasn’t a game; it was a struggle for survival. The girls, Sophie, Flora, and Carla, grew up at a time and a place that did not allow them [...]

    JNS.org – “He was part hippie, part yippie, part beatnik, and part New Age,” wrote Elli Wohlgelernter in a Jerusalem Post eulogy in 1994, following the Oct. 20 passing of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Twenty years later, more robust accounts of Carlebach’s life have come to the surface. Earlier this year, Natan Ophir published the book Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach: Life, Mission & Legacy. This past summer, Rabbi Shlomo Katz’s The Soul of Jerusalem hit the shelves. But even the authors will admit [...]

    As Hamas loses its grip on power in the Gaza Strip as a result of war, poverty and disillusionment, the Islamist terrorist group has developed an ingenious way to raise the morale of the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs it was elected to serve. While currently focused on delivering a rocket into every Israeli home, Hamas has not left its own people behind. To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry [...]

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]
