crescent and starAMCHA, a group that monitors anti-Semitic behavior on university campuses, is speaking out against a message posted by a pro-Palestinian professor in San Francisco.

In February, San Francisco State University President Leslie Wong announced that Zionists are welcome at the school. In response, Associate Professor Rabab Abdulhadi, head of Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas (AMED) Studies, described that has "a declaration of war" against pro-Palestinian students.

Pro-Israel advocate Tammi Benajmin of AMCHA says AMED needs to be investigated.

"An academic program that does this shouldn't exist – it really shouldn't exist," she emphasizes. "It shouldn't be funded in this time of real financial crisis."

Benjamin says the letter from the concerned organizations was addressed to Cal State Chancellor Timothy White and the board of trustees asking them to investigate AMED.

"Does this seem like a fiscally responsible program that's not engaging in malfeasance and discriminatory, hateful behavior that violates university policy and law?" she wonders.

In an update, Benjamin says both President Wong and Chancellor White have "responded forcefully" against AMED's statement, with Wong promising that "corrective action" will be taken.
