At what point does the critical thinking that you want your college-age child to experience become morally wrong? Could it be when their professor is “pro-terrorism”? Yea, Julio Pino has been a controversial figure on the Kent State campus for decades now and not one administrator on the campus has made an effort to question this man on his involvement with “pro-terrorist” promotion:
In April 2002, Pino wrote a guest column in the campus newspaper in which he praised Ayat al-Akhras, a teenage Palestinian suicide bomber who had murdered Rachel Levy, 17, and security guard Haim Smadar, 55, at a supermarket in Jerusalem’s Kiryat Hayovel neighborhood the previous month.
The column was titled “Singing out Prayer for a Youth Martyr,” and in it, Pino wrote that Akhras “died a martyr’s death… in occupied Jerusalem, Palestine.”Via: jpost
The FBI has been investigating this guy for over a year so it’s important to note that there must be something not so innocent about this guy:
The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are investigating Julio Pino, a Kent State associate history professor, for alleged involvement with the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIl.
IN HIS OWN WORDS – JULIO CLAIMS INNOCENCE:
A joint terrorism task force has been investigating Pino for the last year and a half, said an FBI special agent who did not wish to be named for safety reasons.
“There is no direct threat to the university,” the agent said.
The agent said they interviewed several faculty members and more than 20 of Pino’s students Tuesday about his alleged involvement. He is also being investigated for allegedly recruiting students to join ISIS.
