Syracuse University severs ties with Palestinian Al-Quds University

Students at al-Quds hold a Nazi-style demonstration. Supported by donations from Western nations, al-Quds has a reputation as the most moderate Palestinian univeristy
Syracuse University “indefinitely” suspended its relationship with Al-Quds University on Thursday, making it the second American university to sever ties this week after students held a Nazi-style demonstration on the Palestinian university’s campus.

“We are very disappointed and saddened to have learned of these recent events at Al-Quds University,” said Kevin Quinn, Syracuse’s senior vice president for public affairs, in an email to The Jerusalem Post.

He said Syracuse’s Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism would end its ties with Al-Quds. The decision by Syracuse came three days after Brandeis University severed its relationship. (See here.)
