SWC Demands Immediate Firing of Pro-Terrorist Lecturer who Targeted Jewish Students

October 13, 2023

The Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) is calling on Stanford University to denounce and fire one of its lecturers following an incident in which he made Jewish students stand in a corner while branding them “colonizers” – while also downplaying the Holocaust and defending murderous Hamas terrorists as “freedom fighters.”

The lecturer told the Jewish students to take their belongings, stand in a corner, and said, “This is what Israel does to the Palestinians.” He then asked, “How many people died in the Holocaust?” When a student answered, “Six million,” the lecturer said, “Colonizers killed more than 6 million. Israel is a colonizer.” 

“Stanford? This so-called academic behaves like the Nazis and Stalinists did. It’s time for university leaders to condemn the mass murderers of infants, entire families, rapists, and kidnappers. Act now before it’s too late,” stated Rabbi Abraham Cooper, SWC Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is an international Jewish human rights organization. It holds consultative status at the United Nations, UNESCO, the OSCE, the Council of Europe, the OAS, and the Latin American Parliament (PARLATINO).
