Columbia Tops List of Colleges With 'Worst anti-Semitic Activity'
Columbia University's Joseph Massad
Columbia University has the dubious distinction of ranking number one on the David Horowitz Freedom Center list--part of its "Jew Hatred on Campus" campaign--of the ten U.S. campuses with the worst anti-Semitic activity in 2014. Israel-bashing Middle East studies professors Rashid Khalidi and Joseph Massad figure prominently in that decision, as does the fact that former Virginia Tech professor, and anti-Semitic tweeter par excellence, Steven Salaita was invited to speak on campus. As noted by the Algemeiner
According to the Center, Columbia University is listed first because it is home to the "most well-known antisemitic professors in the nation such as Rashid Khalidi and Joseph Massad, who has been accused of harassing Jewish students on multiple occasions. In addition, it is home to a highly active SJP [Students for Justice in Palestine] chapter that has recently brought BDS founder Omar Barghouti and disgraced antisemitic professor Steven Salaita to campus."
