Over 200 people have been taken hostage by the terrorist organization Hamas. Over 1,400 people in Israel have been killed since Hamas terrorists invaded the Jewish state on Oct. 7.
Yazmeen Deyhimi, a junior at the university, admitted to tearing apart banners that were posted outside NYU’s Tisch Hall after being caught on video, according to the New York Post.
She was identified by her fellow students after the video went viral, with users across social media calling for NYU to punish the students. Her accomplice was identified as Hafiza Khalique who serves as a Muslim Youth Leadership Council Member at Advocates for Youth. The third student in the video has not yet been identified.
Deyhimi stated on her now-deleted LinkedIn profile that she is an advocate against Muslim bigotry and spent a summer working with the ADL as a CSC Education Intern.
A spokesperson for the organization told the New York Post, “After review, we can confirm that one of the participants was part of an ADL high-school level summer internship in 2019. We fully condemn her actions and hope that the apology she issued is the first step towards working to repair the harm and deep hurt her actions caused.”
The ADL then scrubbed any mention of the intern from its website, including a blog post announcing her as one of the 12 student leaders joining the program in which Deyhimi was described as “extremely passionate about fighting racial profiling and championing gender equality.”
The ADL still has Chaya Raichik, the Jewish woman behind the popular account Libs of Tiktok, who helped expose the organization's former intern, listed in its “glossary of extremism.”
Deyhimi, an activist who is “extremely passionate about fighting racial profiling,” admitted what she did in an Instagram post after the video circulated on social media.
She wrote in a now-deleted post, “I have found it increasingly difficult to know my place as a biracial brown woman, especially during these highly volatile times.”
“I have felt more and more frustrated about the time we currently find ourselves in, and misplaced that anger into actions that are not an accurate representation of who I am as a person,” she added.
“In this age of social media and digital footprint, these moments of anger are selfish and self-absorbed, and not reflective of who I am as a person or who my family had raised me to be.”
Deyhimi was also previously featured in a New York Times article in December 2022 about style choices of NYU students clubbing inside the basement of a shuttered barbershop.
NYU has not said if Deyhimi or her accomplices will face any disciplinary action.
