Columbia Student Banned From Campus After Threatening to ‘Murder Zionists’

Columbia University banned the student who discussed “murdering Zionists” from campus following the incident.

Report from Fox News:

Junior Khymani James expressed “regret” early Friday after he went viral online for previously suggesting people should be “grateful” he wasn’t “murdering Zionists,” whom he likened to “White supremacists” and “Nazis.”

Without explicitly mentioning what they were, James copped to inflammatory comments that were first reported by The Daily Wire, during a livestream of an official Columbia inquiry in January.

“I actually kind of hope they do kick me out because I’ve been meaning to travel to South America,” James said of whether he would remain on as a student at Columbia during the livestream. 

University sources told Fox News Digital disciplinary proceedings are now underway.

Before the news James was banned, Columbia put out a campus update calling the video “extremely alarming and upsetting.”

“Calls of violence and statements targeted at individuals based on their religious, ethnic, or national identity are unacceptable and violate university policy,” the statement said. “When there are violations of student conduct policies, they are reviewed and disciplinary measures are applied.”

“What is a Zionist? A White supremacist,” James said in the resurfaced video.

“Be grateful that I’m not just going out and murdering Zionists,” he said at another point. “I’ve never hurt anyone in my life, and I hope to keep it that way.”
