Jewish students slam UC Berkeley lecturer's anti-Semitic tweets. Jewish groups call on university to take action against lecturer who accused Jews of rape, murder, and organ theft.
JTA - In a letter to the university administration, the groups said Berkeley had not gone far enough in addressing the tweets by Hatem Bazian, a lecturer in the Department of Asian American and Asian Diaspora studies.
“While we fully support academic freedom and free speech, we believe Bazian’s record is severe enough to warrant more than just condemnation,” said the letter. “We also know that there is a precedent for the removal of non-tenured faculty who promote hate on social media and elsewhere.”
