Columbia professor calls university president a ‘coward’ in fiery speech about campus anti-Israel activism

Columbia Business School assistant professor and Israeli-American Shai Davidai called out Columbia University president Minouche Shafik as a “coward” for remaining silent on “pro-terror” groups at school.

“To the pro-terror organizations at Columbia, my seven-year-old son is a legitimate target of resistance just because he’s Israeli,” Davidai said in a passionate speech on campus. 

“My two-year-old daughter is a legitimate target of resistance — that is what they are selling,” he continued.
