In a viral video, a Columbia University professor blasted university presidents, including his own, for their cowardice in not making Jewish students feel safe on their campuses.

“Please take out your phones because I want this message to get to every parent who sent their kids to Columbia University and trusted their kids and their children’s safety with us,” Professor Shai Davidai of the Columbia Business School told the assembled students. “I want this message to get to parent in America who sends their kids to NYU, to Harvard, to Stanford, to Berkeley. And I want you to know one thing – we cannot protect your child.”

“I am Israeli, but before all of that, I am a dad,” he continued. “I have two beautiful children and I’m talking to you; I speaking to you as a dad and I want you to know, we cannot protect your children from pro-terrorist student organizations because the president of Columbia University will not speak out against pro-terror student organizations. Because the president of Harvard University, because the president of Stanford, because the president of Berkeley – they will not speak out against pro-terror student organizations.”

He spoke of his 7-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter, pointing out that the terrorist group Hamas views them as “legitimate targets of resistance.” “That is what they are selling: you are allowed to murder and kidnap my 2-year-old daughter in the name of ‘resistance.’ And none of the presidents of universities all around the country are willing to take a stand. This is what cowards do and I’ll name it now: President Minouche Shafik of Columbia University, you are a coward,” he charged.

He warned parents of every religious affiliation: “I’m telling every parent in the United States, it does not matter if you’re Jewish or Christian or Muslim or Hindu or Buddhist or an atheist… rape is never ok. Not as an act of resistance, not as an act of revenge. Rape is never ok. And if my amazing 2-year-old daughter were now 18 years old, I would never, never send her to Columbia. … because I know that she will not be protected here.”

“We would never allow, never allow the KKK to march at our campus,” he declared. “We would never allow an ISIS demonstration on our campus. Can you imagine in the city which had to endure 9/11, the worst attack on American soil, can you imagine that here we have pro-terror student organizations?”

“So what I want you to do now is I want you to go on social media,” he instructed the students. “I want you to put this video online. I want this to get to every parent, every concerned mom, every concerned dad in and around the United States. And I want you all, tomorrow morning to call your kid’s college, your kid’s university and ask them one simple question: Will you protect my child from pro-terror student organizations?”
