Terrorist professor fired

USF fires terrorist professor.

The computer engineering professor charged with running the American operations of a Palestinian terrorist group was fired Wednesday by the University of South Florida.

Sami Al-Arian, who had been suspended since shortly after the 2001 terrorist attacks, was found to have abused his position at the university, USF president Judy Genshaft said.

“Dr. Al-Arian’s statements about his activities have been false and misleading and he’s failed to meet our high professional standards,” Genshaft said. “No longer will he be able to hide under the shield of academic freedom.”

Al-Arian, 45, was arrested last week. He and seven others are accused in a 121-page federal indictment of setting up a terrorist cell at the university and funneling support to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which the government says has killed more than 100 people in Israel and its territories.

Geez, and they accuse Concordia of being Gaza U . . .
