Denounce Hate and Bigotry at UT-Austin

This petition had 3,479 supporters

After storming into Israeli Professor Ami Pedahzur's classroom to call for the destruction of Israel, members of the Palestine Solidarity Committee (PSC) began shouting "Long live intifada" – a call for violence against Israelis.

Now, PSC members want Dr. Pedahzur fired because they felt "intimidated" when he stared back at them. Worse, they're filing a civil rights complaint because Dr. Pedahzur responded with an open letter to the campus community, revealing the group's leader uses the screen-name “Georges Abdallah,” a Lebanese assassin who murdered an American soldier.

It's time we join our voices in denouncing PSC's tactics. Hate groups, bigotry, and violence of any kind – including anti-Semitism – have no place at UT-Austin or any college campus. Sign the petition.
