    when zionist jihadis strike:

    The documentary - which aside from a few screenings to selective audiences has not been released to the public - is based on the anecdotal accounts of only six current and former Columbia students. According to people who have viewed the film, it references three professors, but the brunt of the condemnation falls on Joseph Massad, who teaches an elective course, "Palestinian and Israeli Politics and Societies," that is "critical of Zionism and Palestinian nationalism." In the wake of the film, the Sun and U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-Brooklyn, have demanded that Massad be fired.

    Of the handful of students who attack Massad in the film, only one has ever taken his class.

    There's still that bill floating its way through congress [H.R. 3077] that would have this sort of "evidence" sent to a "seven-member advisory board that would have the power to recommend cutting federal funding for colleges and universities that are viewed as harboring academic critics of Israel":

    Americans will not be able to find out how their representatives voted on the bill. Hoekstra asked for a suspension of the House rules, which was approved, making it possible for the controversial measure to be passed with an unrecorded “voice vote.” There is no record of how individual House members voted or if they even voted at all.
