Columbia University professor Hamid Dabashi argues that Israel and ISIS are the same. This is completely unacceptable.
He wrote on Facebook that the only difference between Israel and the Islamic State is that Zionist columnists defend the Jewish state’s “terrorist cause.”
He added: “The only difference: ISIS does not have a platoon of clean shaven and well coiffured [sic] columnists at the New York Times propagating the cause of the terrorist outfit as the Zionists columnists do on a regular basis.”

Columbia’s Students Supporting Israel chapter shared a screenshot of Dabashi’s post on their Facebook page.
A Columbia University professor wrote on Facebook that the only difference between Israel and the Islamic State, is that Zionist columnists defend the Jewish state’s “terrorist cause.”
Hamid Dabashi, a professor in the university’s Department of Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies, wrote this last week, triggering an outcry by pro-Israel students.
The “murderous thugs” of the jihadist group “conquered parts of Syria and declared a ‘caliphate,’” Dabashi wrote. “Their ISRAELI counterparts meanwhile conquered parts of Syria and declared it part of their Zionist settler colony.”
He added: “The only difference: ISIS does not have a platoon of clean shaven and well coiffured [sic] columnists at the New York Times propagating the cause of the terrorist outfit as the Zionists columnists do on a regular basis.” More
He’s a professor of what? Anti-Israel propaganda? Obviously a hater of Jews and a pretty ignorant one too. This seems to be the most popular subject in colleges nowadays.
Why is he allowed to continue to teach our young adults? He should be fired and given a one-way ticket to Syria.
It’s no wonder anti-Semitism is spreading on college campuses, when students have professors teaching them hate. Such as in @Columbia University, where a professor likened #Israel to #ISIS, calling it a “terrorist cause” https://t.co/LmpJpHu9mq

These statements goes against history and facts. How can anyone keep this “academic”employed? Any person with a shred of honesty and decency should be horrified by Hamid Dabashi statements. https://t.co/jX7EdhKPAM
