University of Calgary refused to remove student spreading pro-jihad views from Jewish professor's class
by Reid Southwick
A former professor at the University of Calgary says he left his tenured position after colleagues refused to respond to his concerns about students spreading radical Muslim views.
Aaron Hughes, a prolific author on religion who holds a PhD on Islamic studies, said he once found a message scrawled in Arabic across his classroom's chalkboard endorsing Islamic Jihad and Hamas, widely considered a terrorist group by Western countries.
Mr. Hughes, who is Jewish, said he interpreted the message as anti-Semitic, but he said the university declined to remove the offending student from his class.
