UC Berkeley's Hatem Bazian anti-semitic tweets

Hatem Bazian, a man who infamously called for an intifada in America has been using his twitter account to spread repulsive anti-Semitism

On July 31, 2017, Bazian,  a lecturer in Berkeley's Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies department. retweeted an anti-Semitic tweet accusing a “Zionist” of “apartheid, occupation, ethnic cleansing, genocide” and theft of “Palestinian land+resources+body-organs
One tweet  features a cartoon of a Jewish man, captioned: “I can now kill, rape, smuggle organs & steal the land of Palestinians.”

The other shows Kim Jong-Un, of North Korea,  wearing a kippah, saying he has just converted his nation to Judaism: “Donald Tlump: Now my nukes are legal & I can annex South Korea & you need to start paying me 34 billion a year in welfare.”

Hatem's anti-Semitism was exposed by Tikvah, the Zionist Voice at UC Berkeley.
Tikvah, the Zionist Voice at UC Berkeley, condemns every form of Anti-Semitism and expects that people be held accountable for their actions. Professor Hatem Bazian, a lecturer at UC Berkeley’s Ethnic Studies Department, has shown his true colors after retweeting a truly revolting, Anti-Semitic tweet shown below. It is unacceptable for a lecturer at a highly acclaimed and diverse university to be allowed to spew propaganda and discriminatory content, whether it is in the classroom or online. We are calling on the UC Berkeley to condemn Professor Bazian’s actions and hold him accountable for his Anti-Semitic behavior. We also expect a public apology and a pledge to attend sensitivity training by Professor Bazian.
News of Bazian's antisemitic tweet spread widely through the Jewish papers

After word of the blatant anti-Semitism spread, Hatem Bazian issued a tepid apology, admitting the cartoon was "wrong and offensive".

Coming from Bazian, a man with a long history of divisive, offensive rhetoric, the words were meaningless.

One would think that the co-founder of the Islamophobia Research and Documentation Center would be more sensitive and knowledgeable about what he was tweeting.
