PA official calls for investigation of Lincoln University professor for 'disgraceful' comments about Israel

Pennsylvania Board of Education Chairman Joseph Torsella has written a letter to Lincoln University President Ivory Nelson asking for an investigation into anti-Semitic remarks made by Dr. Kaukab Siddique, an associate professor of English at the university.

From Torsella's letter:
According to public writings and speeches, Mr. Siddique has characterized Israel as a "terrorist entity;" called for its violent overthrow; and peddled anti-Semitic propaganda ("the Jews…are a small minority in America, yet they have taken over this country by devious and immoral means"). Further, I am concerned about statements in, among other sources, the "New Trend Magazine" about Hezbollah and the Taliban that have been brought to my attention as purportedly authored by Mr. Siddique.
