Alums for Campus Fairness (ACF) has produced a research document on anti-Semitic incidents at Columbia University and its sister school, Barnard College, since the 2016-2017 academic year.
As Campus Watch has long reported, Israel-bashing Middle East studies academics, such as Rashid Khalidi, Joseph Massad, Hamid Dabashi, and many others, figure prominently. Unsurprisingly, the noxious Dabashi, who has compared Israel to ISIS and blamed the Jewish state for "every dirty treacherous ugly and pernicious act happening in the world," racks up the greatest number of anti-Semitic incidents.
