anti-Israel flag BDS anti-SemiticAfter much cover-up by the mainstream media since last fall, it has only recently come to light that a professor from a major Southern California university compared Israeli Zionists to terrorists.

A student recently brought it to the attention of the group StandWithUs that University of Southern California (USC) professor David Kang, showed a slide during a class lecture that compared Zionists to the likes of Kim Jong Il, Mao Zedong and other terrorists.

StandWithUs Co-founder and CEO Roz Rothstein described how the student sat in amazement as other classmates remained silent during the professor’s anti-Semitic statement under the guise of progressive education.

"But he was shocked as he sat in the classroom and there was no conversation,” Rothstein recounted. “But this slide appeared out of context, and so he was very troubled by it. And it became public information when the student spoke up with all of the evidence from the classroom."

Though the Jewish advocate admits that the professor is entitled to his opinion under the right of free speech, she also maintains that he needs to be held accountable for making such an blatantly anti-Semitic statement during class time.

"A professor can say a lot of things, including this, but [whether professors] should be held responsible for what they say is the question,” Rothstein argued. “And we feel he should be."

Rothstein pointed out that she called on USC to condemn Kang's statement. However, a school official announced that he has looked into the matter and is not concerned.
