DEVELOPING STORY: Police are investigating a series of horrific messages that specifically threatened Jewish students at Cornell University. The messages were posted on a campus forum and specifically targeted the university’s Center for Jewish Living and the kosher dining hall.
The Cornell Daily Sun reports that other unnamed individuals threatened to rape female Jewish students and behead Jewish babies in front of their parents.
“if i see another synagogue another rally for the zionist globalist genocidal apartheid dictatorial entity known as “israel”, i will bring an assault rifle to campus and shoot all you pig jews [sic],” said one post titled “if i see another jew” by a poster calling themselves “hamas.” “jews are human animals and deserve a pigs death. Liberation by any means. From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free [sic]!”

Cornell President Condemns Jew Haters
Cornell President Martha Pollack condemned what she called “a series of horrendous, antisemitic messages.”
“At this time, Cornell Police are on the scene and investigating. Police will continue to remain on site to ensure our students and community members are safe,” Pollack said in a statement. “Cornell Police have also notified the FBI of a potential hate crime.”

“Threats of violence are absolutely intolerable, and we will work to ensure that the person or people who posted them are punished to the full extent of the law,” the university president said. “Our immediate focus is on keeping the community safe; we will continue to prioritize that.”

“If you see a jewish ‘person’ on campus follow them home and slit their throats,” read another post. “Rats need to be eliminated from cornell.
“The genocidal fascist zionist regime will be destroyed. rape and kill all jew women, before they birth more jewish hitlers,” another post read. “Jews are excrement on the face of the earth. no jew civilian is innocent of genocide.”
Currently on a @Cornell discussion forum, the kosher dining hall (104 west) is now on lockdown and Jewish students are scared to leave their rooms. @GovKathyHochul @HenMazzig pic.twitter.com/MsK4y34zf6— Annie Vail (@AnnieSun16) October 29, 2023
Pollack was horrified by the postings.
“We will not tolerate antisemitism at Cornell,” she said. “During my time as president, I have repeatedly denounced bigotry and hatred, both on and off our campus. The virulence and destructiveness of antisemitism is real and deeply impacting our Jewish students, faculty and staff, as well as the entire Cornell community. This incident highlights the need to combat the forces that are dividing us and driving us toward hate. This cannot be what defines us at Cornell.”
Meanwhile, Jewish students are terrified and some are afraid to leave their dorm rooms.
The campus Hillel chapter advised Jewish students to avoid the kosher dining all “out of an abundance of caution.”
There’s a way to resolve this ugly matter.
The university should order the fraternities and sororities to turn over those responsible within 24 hours or else their clubs will be disbanded and their houses bulldozed.
And if that doesn’t work – the alumni should withhold every single penny until the antisemites are rooted out.
