Disturbing footage and social media posts show vicious protesters threatening Jewish and Israeli students with additional October 7 Massacres, declared their membership with Hamas, and expressed support for terrorism.

In response to the extreme threats, a local campus rabbi has instructed students to go home for their own safety.

“Remember the 7th of October!” shouted a man with a red keffiyeh over his face in a video. “That will happen not one more time, not five more times, not 10 more times, not 100 more times, not 1000 more times, but 10,000 times!”

“Never forget the 7th of October,” said another masked man wearing a Palestinian flag. “Are you ready? 7th of October is about to be every day. Every day. 7th of October is going to be every day for you.”

A woman in a Keffiyeh shouted at a pro-Israel activist, “We are Hamas,” outside Columbia on Wednesday.

Students Supporting Israel Columbia said in a statement that when the encampment was set up on the campus on Wednesday, anti-Israel activists chanted, “We don’t want Zionists here.” Protesters reportedly threw fake blood at Jewish students.

“We know where you live now,” the activists called, according to SSI. “You killed half our family.”

SSI said that on Friday, Jews were told to kill themselves, and some were approached by a person holding up the emblem of Hamas.

In addition, political commentator Yoseph Haddad was attacked on Friday before he was set to give a lecture.

“I was physically attacked by pro-terror protesters before my lecture at Columbia University,” Haddad said on Instagram. “Instead of a lecture, I had to file a complaint with the police. They may have drawn blood, but these cowards will never stop me.”

A prominent rabbi for Columbia University has warned Jewish students to go home and not return to campus because of “extreme antisemitism” at the university.

Rabbi Buechler, of the Orthodox Union’s Jewish Learning Initiative on campus, told students it has become clear Columbia cannot “guarantee Jewish students’ safety in the face of extreme antisemitism and anarchy.”

“It is not our job as Jews to ensure our own safety on campus,” he continued. “No one should have to endure this level of hatred, let alone at school.”

Rabbi Buechler cautioned students Sunday morning on WhatsApp to “return home as soon as possible and remain home until the reality in and around campus has dramatically improved.”

And then transfer outta there. Why would any Jew want to attend Columbia right now, or most other high-end Ivy League schools? And who is backing the screaming radical protests?

These savages Issue death threats
(“every day will be October 7”).Where is the university president, where is the Board of Directors? I wonder how many chairs are funded by Jews and how many will ask for the money back.

I really miss the Jewish Defense League, and the years that they were active in New York City, At the time, they knew how to protect Jewish lives and property. I didn’t necessarily agree with all of their tactics, but they commanded a lot of respect from the people whom they protected. At the time, Rabbi Meir Kahane, of blessed memory, predicted that there would eventually be physical attacks on Jews, in the USA, and nobody believed him.

Biden and the Dems give aid and comfort to Hamas.

My Frum grandson is a student at Columbia.He stays in his room and studies most of the time and Boruch Hashem has not had any serious problems.It’s quite difficult studying with all the,” From the river noise, but he did get 4 A+s in 4/5of his courses.With Hashem’s help , he will not need programs or parental help when he graduates from college.
