Over 300 faculty members from Columbia University and Barnard College signed an open letter expressing their dismay at the recent surge in antisemitic incidents on campus.

The letter condemns these incidents, which include physical assault, antisemitic epithets, and swastikas, as they create a hostile and unsafe environment for the entire community.

The faculty members also criticize the support shown by some Columbia faculty for pro-Hamas student groups and their attempts to justify or legitimize terrorist attacks.

“Just as we condemn any bigoted comments or acts directed at Palestinian and Muslim students, we are appalled by the spate of antisemitic incidents on campus since October 7. These incidents, which include antisemitic epithets, physical assault, and swastikas scrawled on bathroom walls, are growing in frequency and are creating a hostile and unsafe environment that impacts our entire community,” the open letter read.

“We are horrified that anyone would celebrate these monstrous attacks or, as some members of the Columbia faculty have done in a recent letter, try to ‘recontextualize’ them as a ‘salvo,’ as the ‘exercise of a right to resist’ occupation, or as ‘military action.’”

“We are astonished that anyone at Columbia would try to legitimize an organization that shares none of the University’s core values of democracy, human rights, or the rule of law,” the letter added.

“In the same way that the University defends other groups from this sort of disgusting conduct, it is essential to do the same for Jewish and Israeli students. To do otherwise would betray our ideals and the values of Columbia as a great university.”

The letter additionally emphasizes the need to defend Jewish and Israeli students, and calls on the university to uphold its values.
