Pro-Israel people will be a big part of the incoming Trump administration, warned one Columbia University professor:
A Columbia University professor notorious for promoting anti-Israel boycotts was forced to walk back comments warning that Israel supporters will “infest” the United States government after Donald Trump’s inauguration.
“There are a group of people, a lot of them in Israel and some of them in the United States, who live in a world of their own,” Rashid Khalidi, a professor of Arab studies at Columbia University, declared in an interview with Chicago radio station WBEZ last week. “And unfortunately, these people infest the Trump transition team, these people are going to infest our government as of January 20. And they are hand in glove with a similar group of people in the Israeli government and Israeli political life who think that whatever they think can be imposed on reality.”
