Fox News spoke to several USC students who believe it is hypocritical for a âdiversityâ senator from a student organization to make such statements.
USC student Molly Davis told Fox News the incident showed a “high level of hypocrisy.”
“I don’t like to talk in the absolute, but it always seems to be the people who advocate for ‘inclusion’ who harbor the most hate in their hearts,” said Davis. As students are forced to take virtual training on ‘diversity,’ DCI senators tweet how they literally want to end the lives of the humans who support the Jewish people. It’s dark and gravely twisted. can’t imagine how every Jewish person feels in Yasmeen’s presence. “
Davis suggested that if a DCI student leader tweeted that she wanted to “kill all BLM supporters” there would be more action.
If a student senator from the DEI Department tweeted that he wanted to ‘kill all BLM supporters’, the LA Times and the Daily Trojan would grab headlines for weeks, and the USC campus would be overrun with protesters – Rightly so. However, it’s a different story every time the Jewish people – or anyone supporting the Jewish people – is attacked, âDavis said.
“I would say it’s not really something anyone should say, but especially not someone in this position,” said another student, who wished to remain anonymous.
“It makes Jewish students uncomfortable, but we are very used to it. If we support Israel, we discuss it in private because we know it is strongly associated with the right politically, and people do not tolerate it. that, especially at a liberal arts college. “

The Canary Mission, which first reported on the tweets, told Fox News it was “scary” that Mashayekh still held a leadership position in a student organization.
âYasmeen Mashayekh’s role as Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Senator at USC Viterbi is ludicrous. After The Canary Islands mission statement Yasmeen showed no remorse for his extreme anti-Semitism, “said a spokesperson for the Canary Islands mission.
Instead, she doubled down, engaging in an anti-Semitic Twitter frenzy. Her tweets, retweets and likes include a rar-right conspiracy theory, the justification for the murder of Israeli tour guide Eli Kay and multiple examples of dehumanization of Jews – equating Israelis with the Nazis and that “every fucking Zionist king” supports genocide. ”
Sixty-six current and former USC faculty members signed a letter to the university leadership, calling on him to “publicly and explicitly reprimand Yasmeen Mashayekh for his offensive behavior and to keep USC away from his hateful statements.”
âRepeated threats of murder and violence based on race, religion, ethnicity, country of origin, gender, sexual orientation, etc. are not acceptable speeches, even in the context of heated debates on difficult political issues. The absence of an explicit condemnation is tantamount to tacit approval. It is a slap in the face for the students, staff and faculty at USC who are Jewish and for anyone who supports the right of the State of Israel to exist, âthe letter said.

A USC spokesperson told Fox News the statements are “disturbing” but protected by law.
âThe individual is a member of a self-organizing group of graduate students, elects their own board members and does not set university policies. Even though the statements in question are protected by law, we understand they are disturbing. USC rejects and condemns hatred in all its forms, “the spokesperson said.
Mashayekh and the Viterbi Graduate Student Association did not respond to a Fox News request for comment.
