American Professor Calling for Annihilation of Israel

Nadene Goldfoot
Way back in February of 2007, Kent State University's Professor Julio Pino was found to be running a Jihad website.  He was a Muslim convert, and also had a blog.  He was calling for Hamas (terrorists in Gaza who overtook Fatah) to be taken off Europes terrorist organization list.  This is when they were coming on strong and attacking Israel.  Pino has been accused of having terrorist ties.  In fact, his home was raided by the U.S. Secret Service in 2009. 

Professor Pino has not wavered in his stance nor has be been dismissed from Kent State.  He has tenure.  This insulting man attended a CAMERA-sponsored event on Tuesday, October 25tha in a university hall on campus, featuring  Ishmael Khaldi, an Israeli who happens to be a Muslim Bedouin.  Khaldi is a former diplomat and the current advisor to Israel's foreign Minister. 

During the presentation, Dr. Pino was standing in the back of the auditorium and handing out material encouraging students to boycott Israel.

There was a question and answer session, Pino  charged Israel's government with killing children and babies.  He and Khaldi yelled at each other in a verbal altercation ending with Pino storming out and yelling "Death to Israel!" 

Pino violated all sorts of codes of conduct in his fiasco.  They have an Employee Code of Conduct saying that every employed person must respect the well being of others, maintain a professional demeanor and respect the differences of people, ideas, and opinions.  When he verbally attacked Ishmael Khaldi and called for the annihilation of the Jewish state, he violated every one of those principals.  He was also violating the solicitation section oin the employee code of conduct. 

After all this, Kent State Associate Vice President Thomas Neumann defended Pino.  No one has yet commented about his breaking the university employee mandate.  Is there no justice for such treatment in a university with rules?  Where is their backbone-or have they become jellyfish?  My first thought is that: Who are the big financial contributors to Kent State these days? 

Kent State University became very well known in May 1970 when they had protests about the Vietnam War when the USA went into Cambodia.  Shooting on campus started with the anti-war protests as well as burning the ROTC building.  It looks like they have lumped Israel into that same philosophy as well by allowing Pino to break all their own rules and attack a spokesman for Israel verbally, even someone who was Muslim but speaking in defense of  Israel.  This professor didn't even bother to listen to his presentation.  A place of learning and the professor doesn't want to learn.
