Georgetown prof, son of terrorist, compares Israel to ISIS


Adam Kredo of Washington Free Beacon has the details:

A Georgetown University professor whose father pled guilty to terrorism charges is facing criticism for comparing Israel to the terror group Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL or ISIS) on Twitter.

Georgetown University History Professor Abdullah Al-Arian, the son of Sami Al-Arian, a controversial Israel critic who pled guilty to conspiring with a terror group, tweeted out his take on a common nursery rhyme by comparing Israel to the terror group ISIL, which recently beheaded an American journalist on film

Al-Arian quickly deleted the tweet, but not before a screenshot was taken and retweeted by the Washington Free BeaconCritics immediately deemed the tweet offensive, inaccurate, and over the line for a professor at Georgetown, which itself has come under fire for hosting a 9/11 Truther and a member of Egypt’s Nazi Party.

Kredo got no response to request for comment from Al-Arian or from Georgetown. Al-Arian is a professor at the Georgetown School of Foreign Service on the Qatar campus. As Kredo notes, Qatar has been the principle source of funding for Hamas.
