JNS.orgSyracuse University became the second school in a week to suspend its relationship with the Palestinian Al-Quds University in Jerusalem following a Nazi-style rally at Al-Quds, The Jerusalem Post reported.

The school’s Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism halted ties with Al-Quds. “We are very disappointed and saddened to have learned of these recent events at Al-Quds University,” Kevin Quinn, Syracuse’s senior vice president for public affairs, told the Post in a report published Friday.

Brandeis University had suspended its Al-Quds partnership after astatement by Al-Quds on the rally that Brandeis considered “unacceptable and inflammatory.” The statement by Al-Quds President Sari Nusseibeh highlighted “vilification campaigns by Jewish extremists” against the university, rather than exclusively addressing the Nazi-style rally.
