An alarming incident of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment has occurred at an American place of higher learning. The Jerusalem Post reports that students at Brooklyn College demanded that Zionists be sent off of the campus:

Approximately 10 Brooklyn College students who interrupted a faculty meeting called for “Zionists off campus” among its list of demands.

A faculty member at the Tuesday afternoon meeting told JTA that along with the demand on Zionists, the students called one faculty member a “Zionist pig.” The educator who spoke to JTA wished to remain anonymous...

In a news release issued Tuesday, Brooklyn state Assemblyman Dov Hikind said he received complaints after the meeting from “dozens” of faculty members.

“It’s just an absolute disgrace that something like this would happen in our own community,” Hikind said.
