Statement on Rutgers Professor Michael Chikindas’s Anti-Semitic Posts

October 26, 2017

CAMERA on Campus is horrified by Rutgers Department of Food Science Professor Michael Chikindas’s anti-Semitic Facebook posts, discovered this week. The university is “reviewing this matter to determine if actions taken in the context of his role as a faculty member at Rutgers may have violated that policy.” 
In response, International Campus Director for CAMERA Aviva Slomich released the following statement:
 
“Professor Chikindas’s posts depict scheming, controlling and evil Jews, evoking Der Stürmer-style antisemitic imagery which is shared widely by hate and extremist groups on social media.
 
We are working with our CAMERA Fellow and CAMERA-supported group Scarlet Knights for Israel at Rutgers to formulate an appropriate on-campus response.
 
CAMERA on Campus calls on the Rutgers administration to take the necessary actions to ensure that university policy is upheld.” 

Campus Coordinator Ben Suster met with CAMERA-supported group Scarlet Knights for Israel and CAMERA Fellow Miriam Waghalter to provide moral and practical support on the evening of Thursday, October 26th at Rutgers.

Screenshots obtained by pro-Israel blog Israellycool of the professor’s posts are seen below.
