Lecturer dodges on condemning terrorism in tense debate at UMass Amherst: ‘It’s not a yes or no question’

A lecturer at the University of Massachusetts Amherst didn’t directly answer whether she would condemn terrorism in a video captured by Fox News at a protest on campus earlier this month. 

“You’re a professor. Will you condemn terrorism?” a pro-Israel student asked lecturer Rachel Weber, who was debating students at an Oct. 13 rally. “It’s a yes or no question.”
