Hate on Campus: Jewish Students at Cornell University Threatened in Online Posts

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.30.23

Jewish students at Cornell University were targeted by online threats over the weekend amid rising tensions in the Middle East and at home. The threats were posted to a website not affiliated with the university and targeted “104 West,” where the Center of Jewish Living is located, Fox News reports.

From Fox News:

One of the threats called for people to follow a Jewish person home and “slit their throats,” adding, “Rats need to be eliminated from Cornell.”

The Steven K. and Winifred A. Grinspoon Hillel Center at the university said it was aware of the threats, in a social media post, saying the Cornell University Police Department is monitoring the situation and on the scene at 104 West.

“At this time, we advise that students and staff avoid the building out of an abundance of caution,” the post read.

“Evidence suggests the targeted locations were intentionally selected because of the perpetrator’s bias,” the Cornell University Police Department wrote in a community alert.

School President Martha E. Pollack also issued a statement about the threats, calling the messages “horrendous.”

Pollack said the police have notified the FBI of the threats, flagging them as a potential hate crime.

“Threats of violence are absolutely intolerable, and we will work to ensure that the person or people who posted them are punished to the full extent of the law,” Pollack said. “Our immediate focus is on keeping the community safe; we will continue to prioritize that. We will not tolerate antisemitism at Cornell.”

“Our students are always our top priority, and we are doing and will do everything we can to ensure their safety. We will continue to notify you with updates as we receive them,” the Cornell Center for Jewish Living wrote in an email to its community.
