BREAKING: University Of Illinois Board Of Trustees Rejects “Pro-Hamas Professor” Steven Salaita (VIDEO)
In a surprise move, the University of Illinois Board of Trustees voted to reject Professor Steven Salaita.
In the video below you can hear the vote against “Steven Salaita, number 14, page 23”
Salaita was offered a position in U of I’s American Indian Studies program but he lost his job offer when he tweeted out very hateful and hostile remarks about Jews and Israel.
Supporters of Salaita have packed the Board room and are making a lot of noise in support of the pro-Hamas professor:

Robert Warrior, dir of AIS at #UIUC: Salaita’s tweets are not obviously troublesome in a way that “justifies what has been done to him.”
