NEW YORK (VINnews) — On June 18, Professor Jeffrey Lax, resigned from the CUNY’s professor’s union over the passage by an overwhelmingly number of colleagues on an anti-Israel resolution.
In a recent column from The Jewish Press, the opening paragraph reads as follows:
‘The 47-year-old Jewish professor of business at Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, N.Y., was appalled by a recent 83-34 vote by the Professional Staff Congress of CUNY on a June 10 resolution that condemns “the continued subjugation of Palestinians to the state-supported displacement, occupation and use of lethal force by Israel” and also “racism in all its forms including anti-Semitism, and recognizes that criticisms of Israel, a diverse nation-state, are not inherently anti-Semitic.”
Today, Alan and Baila from the VINnews podcast ‘The Definitive Rap’ sat down with Professor Lax. During the interview, Lax cited countless examples of anti-semitism within the union, faculty, and hiring practices at the community college.
