McGill Student Leader: 'Punch A Zionist Today'

In a recently-deleted tweet, Igor Sadikov, a student at McGill University in Canada and a member of the university's Legislative Council and Board of Directors of the Students’ Society of McGill University, called on his followers to punch Zionists.

Aidan Fishman of B'nai Brith Canada writes that Sadikov is a supporter of the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israel and once edited the student newspaper that refuses to give pro-Israel voices a forum.

"We expect that this tweet will be taken for the serious example of incitement that it is, and Sadikov will be censured appropriately.

“Further, Sadikov’s tweet only strengthens the case of those who have claimed an overwhelmingly anti-Israel atmosphere at The McGill Daily," said Amanda Hohmann, the National Director of B’nai Brith Canada’s League for Human Rights. "B’nai Brith will do everything in our power to ensure that publication’s discriminatory ban on Zionist content does not stand.”

The Students' Society of McGill University's judicial board rejected BDS last May, claiming correctly that it is a form of discrimination and violates the student union's constitution.

UPDATE

Sadikov wrote the following tweet "apologizing" for his remarks.
