Elite universities that have become hotbeds of anti-Israel activism are drawing criticism for ongoing protests over the Jewish nation’s war on Hamas terrorists and the ugly displays could end up costing them more than their undeserved prestige.
Billionaire hedge fund mogul Leon Cooperman, a graduate of Columbia University where demonstrations are taking place, said that he’s cutting off the tens of millions in donations to the school, blasting its students for having “sh*t for brains” for engaging in their public tantrums.
On Wednesday, Cooperman appeared on “The Claman Countdown” on Fox Business where he expressed his dissatisfaction with the New York City-based Ivy League institution of higher learning where the lunatics are now apparently running the asylum, telling anchor Liz Claman that he’ll be closing his wallet unless he sees a “change.”

“You are a proud graduate of Columbia Business School, class of 67, son of Polish Jewish immigrants, first in your family to graduate from college,” Claman said. “What do you make of what’s happening at Columbia and Harvard, Stanford, NYU as well? There was a student walkout at Columbia just a couple of hours ago, driven by Columbia professor Joseph Massad, who called the Hamas attack quote ‘awesome.’ Where are we in the world when 1,300 Israeli civilians…”
“I think these kids at the colleges have sh*t for brains,” Cooperman cut in, giving his take without any sugar coating, blunt language that seemed to catch Claman off guard.
“We have one reliable ally in the Middle East,” he added. “That’s Israel. We only have one democracy in the Middle East. That’s Israel, ok? And we have one economy tolerant of different people you know, gays, lesbians, etcetera and that’s Israel. So, they have no idea what these young kids are doing.”
“Now, the real shame is I’ve given to Columbia, probably about $50 million over many years,” he said. “And I’m gonna suspend my giving. I’ll give my giving to other organizations.”
“Wow, that is a big statement,” Claman replied. “So, right here right now, you’re saying no more money to Columbia?”
“Yeah, unless I see a change,” Cooperman responded. “I told them that they should fire this professor that made the comments he made. I mean, war is hell. War is not good for anybody, but to praise what Hamas did is disgraceful, disgusting.”
He was referring to Joseph Massad, a tenured history and politics professor who praised the barbaric savagery of Hamas terrorists who slaughtered Israeli civilians – including women, children and babies – in their own homes in a devastating sneak attack on the Jewish democracy.
In a screed published by the radical leftist website Electronic Intifada, Massad hailed the paragliders used by Islamist murderers during the massacre at an outdoor music festival as “the air force of the Palestinian resistance.”
“Perhaps the major achievement of the resistance in the temporary takeover of these settler-colonies is the death blow to any confidence that Israeli colonists had in their military and its ability to protect them,” he wrote, gloating about the medieval-level butchering of helpless Jews.
The raw anti-Semitism expressed by students and professors toward America’s critical Middle East ally has served as a real eye-opener as to what kids are being taught at what were once the nation’s most prestigious universities and it’s a terrible sight to see.
