Suspended protesters got an offer from Houthi militia and Fetterman just couldn’t resist

Senator John Fetterman (D-Pa.) has been on fire lately with his willingness to break with his party in mocking the anti-Israel campus protesters.

Students who face being suspended by their schools over their role in the anti-Israel temper tantrums that have now spread from their incubator at Columbia University across the country have so impressed the radical Islamic Houthi militia that they have been offered to continue their education at Sanaa University in Yemen, which is run by the Houthis.

“We are serious about welcoming students that have been suspended from U.S. universities for supporting Palestinians,” a university official told Reuters. “We are fighting this battle with Palestine in every way we can.”

The unshakably pro-Israel senator offered up his take on the offer, mocking the pro-Palestine students in a Friday post to X.

“If a homicidal, Iranian-funded, terrorism proxy wants to pick up your college education tab, you really, really might want to reevaluate things,” Fetterman, a Democrat from the old school, wrote.

The Houthi-run university’s board issued a statement praising the “humanitarian” actions of the antisemitic students, saying that they were welcome to continue their studies abroad.

“The board of the university condemns what academics and students of U.S. and European universities are being subjected to, suppression of freedom of expression,” the statement read, including an email address for those who may be interested in getting more information.

Fetterman’s post drew a lively response from his fellow X users.

“The protesters at Columbia demonstrated that there are two factions of the protesters — there’s the pro-Hamas, and then there’s the really pro-Hamas,” Fetterman recently told online media outlet Semafor.

In January, the U.S. State Department designated the Iran-backed Houthis as a global terrorist organization.

“Since November, the Houthis have launched unprecedented attacks against international maritime vessels in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, as well as military forces positioned in the area to defend the safety and security of commercial shipping. These attacks against international shipping have endangered mariners, disrupted the free flow of commerce, and interfered with navigational rights and freedoms. This designation seeks to promote accountability for the group’s terrorist activities. If the Houthis cease their attacks in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, the United States will reevaluate this designation,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement.
