Virginia Tech Professor Compares Israel to ISIS

A Virginia Tech professor recently compared Israel to the Sunni radical group ISIS. English professor Steven Salaita tweeted Tuesday:

 
Salaita continued to explain why Israel is comparable to the terrorist group, and contributed other insights on the Israel-Palestine conflict.:

Truth Revolt noted the professor’s history of anti-Israel advocacy. He is a staunch supporter of the Boycott, Sanctions, and Divestment campaign against Israel, arguing in a blog post that the American Studies Association should boycott “the colonial project of Zionism” because of “the indisputable evidence of academic complicity in Israel’s brutalization of Palestinians.”

In his most recent book, Israel’s Dead Soul, Salaita explains how “endowing nation-states with souls is a dangerous phenomenon because it privileges institutions and corporations rather than human beings,” according to the book’s Amazon description.
