Arabs delegitimize Jews, once again

Despite dozens of complaints from Jewish students at Columbia University that Middle East studies professors had intimidated them, an internal probe by a faculty committee has found only a single instance where an instructor acted unreasonably toward a pro-Israel student. “This report…delegitimizes numerous valid complaints by students, and we are determined to fight on for justice,” said Aharon Horwitz, who had testified before the committee. Students said they believed that the committee was biased and included at least one member, Farah Jasmine Griffin, who had signed a petition calling on the university to distance itself from companies that provide arms to Israel.
