Technion Students: Throw Kidnap Post Author Out of School


Students at the Technion said Wednesday that they did not accept an “apology” by Murad Abu al-Hija, whose infamous Facebook post praising the murderers of Israeli teens Eyal Yifrah (19), Naftali Frenkel (16), and Gilad Sha'ar (16) got him into hot water. Technion student Moshe Stern said that there had been “thousands of negative reactions to what al-Hija wrote, and many students have asked the administration to eject him from the school. We need to act against people like this who seek to harm us.”

Al-Hija posted on his Facebook page a status praising the kidnappers and murderers of the Israeli teens, with the kidnappings resulting in “3 goals for Palestine without taking part in the World Cup.” He posted photos of the three murdered youths next to the status.
