Leader of Anti-Israel College Protest Caught Saying People Should be ‘Grateful’ He Doesn’t Murder Jews

This week, a video surfaced on social media featuring a prominent figure leading the pro-Palestinian protests at Columbia University, issuing a warning of violence towards individuals who support the Zionist movement.

“Zionists don’t deserve to live. Be grateful that I’m not just going out and murdering Zionists.” the student, Khymani James, said in a video.

“I don’t fight to injure or for there to be a winner or a loser, I fight to kill,” he continued.

The remarks were made during James’ meeting with school administrators on a social media post in which he expressed a desire to engage in a conflict with a Zionist.

James retracted his comments on social network X in a post on Friday, acknowledging that they were “incorrect.”

He attributes the editing of the clip without context to “far-right agitators”.

The event has exacerbated the situation as the pro-Palestinian protests have sparked a discussion about antisemitism on campus, with both political parties condemning the antisemitic actions that occurred during the demonstrations.
