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.

At the heart of the one-act play is Tony, a Jewish and gay Palestinian sympathizer who expresses strong anti-Israel sentiments when the play begins and at one point even sides with a Palestinian terrorist who holds his captive. Tony, who is also an [...]

    On 75th Anniversary, Looking at the Jewish Influence on Gone With the Wind

    JNS.org – The 75th anniversary of the premiere of “Gone with the Wind” on Dec. 15 presents an opportunity to examine the Jewish influence on one of the most popular films of all time. That influence starts with the American Civil War epic’s famed producer, David O. Selznick. Adjusted for inflation, “Gone with the Wind” remains the highest-grossing movie ever made. It earned the 1939 Academy Award for Best Picture, the same honor another Selznick film, “Rebecca,” garnered in 1940. Selznick [...]

    JNS.org – It was an era of steel strings, guitar heroes, and storytellers—high on heroin, rebellious. Outlaw country music, the hallmark of Nashville’s powerful and angry music scene of the 1970s, was the brew of greats such as Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Townes Van Zandt. But there is another, little-known music hero of that era: Daniel Antopolsky. A Jewish lad from Augusta, Ga.—the son of immigrants who settled in the south and ran a hardware store on Main Street—the [...]

On the 12th of May, the Zionist Executive met to decide what to do. Moshe Sharrett had just returned [...]
