(JNS) A Palestinian professor at San Francisco State University has been condemned by dozens of organizations after calling the acceptance of pro-Israel students to the institution a “declaration of war” against Arabs and Muslims.

SFSU President Leslie Wong issued an apology to the university’s Jewish students for an interview conducted a year ago, in which she would not say that Zionists would be accepted on campus, due to the university Hillel’s complaint that the administration would not take “concrete action steps” to push back against anti-Israel propaganda on campus.

Following her apology, Professor Rabab Ibrahim Abdullhadi, associate professor of Ethnic Studies/Race and Resistance Studies, and senior scholar in Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas (AMED) Studies, posted a message on her program’s official Facebook site blasting Wong.
