Watch: Columbia U. professor Shai Davidai slams New York higher education institution for not standing against pro-Palestinian bodies

Protesters against the judicial overhaul may remember Professor Shai Davidai, who in July participated in the widespread demonstrations against the government’s proposed legislation in which tens of thousands of Israelis took to the streets. Davidai is a social psychology professor at Columbia University’s Business School in New York.

Davidai was in New York when war broke out with Hamas two weeks ago and shifted his social activism to the university's New York campus, where he’s condemning the refusal of many presidents of prestigious American universities to publicly oppose pro-Palestinian student bodies that openly support Hamas’ terrorism.

Prof. Davidai took advantage of the university campus to make his voice heard against its employers, whom he calls “cowards.” Davidai is mainly directing his words against Minouche Shafik, who in July became the university’s 20th president, and the first woman to hold the position since Columbia University’s founding in 1754. She also serves on the board of directors of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Minouche previously served as the Bank of England’s deputy governor and moved on to serve in the same position for the World Bank.
