Ivy League school slammed after professor calls Israel attack ‘exhilarating’: ‘A much deeper problem’

“I want to make it clear that I unequivocally oppose and denounce racism, antisemitism, Islamophobia, militarism, fundamentalism and all systems that dehumanize, divide and oppress people.”

A joint statement released earlier this week by Cornell University President Martha E. Pollack and Cornell University Board of Trustees Chair Kraig H. Kayser called Rickford’s comments about the attacks “reprehensible” and that such statements go against what the university stands for. 

Other anti-Israel events on campuses around the country have portrayed Israel as an oppressor, leading to criticism from alumni and resulting in several employers rescinding job offers to students. 

Cornell declined to comment on Jacobson’s remarks.
