Columbia update

The unauthorized pro-Hamas/anti-Israel demonstration continues for a second day at the heart of the Columbia campus. Columbia authorities have called the cops. The pro-terrorist students want to put President Shafik to the test. As I wrote earlier today, Columbia authorities started asserting themselves and taking remedial action in anticipation of yesterday’s House Education Committee hearing. The hearing did some good even before it was held.

How could we have overlooked the Omar angle? Questioning President Shafik yesterday, Omar somehow omitted to mention that daughter Isra Hirsi is participating in the pro-Hamas work on campus at Columbia. Shouldn’t Omar have mentioned that? We only learned of Hirsi’s work via her disclosure on X of her suspension from Barnard this morning. The rotten apple doesn’t fall far from the rotten tree.

As you might have guessed, Isra Hirsi is a piece of work. Let me repeat. The rotten apple doesn’t fall far from the rotten tree.

One more time. The rotten apple doesn’t fall far from the rotten tree.

And let me say this one more time. That House hearing did some good.
