It seems there’s a film around showing faculty bias against Israel, Israelis and its supporters at Columbia University.
At a history class, a professor mockingly tells a female Jewish student she cannot possibly have ancestral ties to Israel because her eyes are green.
During a lecture, a professor of Arab politics refuses to answer a question from an Israeli student and military veteran but instead asks the student, “How many Palestinians have you killed?”
At a student meeting on the topic of divestment from Israel, a Jewish student is singled out as responsible for death of Palestinian Arabs.
Those scenes are described by current and former students interviewed for an underground documentary that is causing a frisson of concern to ripple through the Morningside Heights campus of Columbia University, where the incidents took place.

Hat tip to Kenny Silverman and Little Green Footballs.
By the way, great use of the word “frisson.”
What can we do to put pressure on Columbia to fight this evil? Is there a way to get other Ivy League schools to pressure Columbia to change its ways or face expulsion?
This film needs to get out. It needs to go viral on the internet. It needs to get out and be forwarded to every Jewish person in the country.
dang. kenny silverman sent me this link via IM last night but I was too busy working to put it up. I do however appreciate your brevity TM. Now lets try and dig up this video….
No way, man, I’m too lazy.
PETITION ALERT! PETITION ALERT!
(Do these things actually do anything?)
To Ali and Petition Alert…
Yes, they do! If 100,000 Jewish and non Jewish people in the US write to Columbia, THEY WILL LISTEN!
