U of I Rescinds Job Offer After Anti-Israel Tweets


The University of Illinois has revoked a job offer to a professor of American Indian studies… after he posted several tweets critical of Israel’s actions in its war against Gaza. 

 

Steven Salaita was supposed to start his new job this weekend, but the University now says it won’t submit his appointment to the board of trustees because he is unlikely to win approval. 

 

Hundreds of scholars say they will boycott U of I conferences and events because of the decision.
