Jewish professor denied entry to Columbia U amid massive Gaza Camp occupation

Prior to his ID being deactivated, the professor requested a personal police escort to the school that he said the administration did not reply to.


A professor at Columbia University who spoke out against the anti-Israel protests and Gaza Camps on campus has asked for a police escort at the college. Shai Davidai said that after the request to the university was ignored, the college deactivated his access card, preventing him from accessing campus.

On Monday, when he attempted to go to campus, Davidai said that his ID access card for the school had been deactivated. He disovered this with Chief Operating Officer Cas Holloway blocking entrance to the gate. Davidai said he had been in a meeting with Holloway and asked him, and others present, to say that Hamas was a "terrorist organization." Davidai said they would not do it.

Davidai spoke near campus to defend Israel and condemn the university for allowing the pro-Hamas camp on the university quad.

He said that requested a police escort to the university on Monday, which he alleged that the college ignored in a post online. "I just send this message to the leadership at
Columbia University. I am going to be on campus Monday morning and I am requesting police escort. Police escort for simply going to my own place of work."

In a post from the professor in 2021, he said, "Lawmakers give police offers (sic) the ammunition which they then use disproportionately on black men. Should we hold lawmakers accountable?"

Over the last several days, students at Columbia University in New York have set up a "Liberated Zone" encampment on the Columbia campus and have refused to leave until Palestine is "free." Protests have accompanied the encampment set up with protesters seen saying things such as "We are all Hamas!" and "Long live Hamas!"   

The president of Columbia, who was brought before Congress to testify on the matter, canceled in-person classed on Monday calling for a "reset."
