      Cornell University is facing calls to fire a professor who declared he was “exhilarated” by the deadly surprise Hamas attack on Israeli civilians, the latest U.S. college grappling with outrage over pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel activism on its campus.  The idiot should be ousted without a second thought.

     Russell Rickford, an associate professor of history, declared at a pro-Palestinian rally at the Ithaca Commons in Ithaca, New York, that “Hamas has shifted the balance of power” and “Hamas has challenged the monopoly of violence.”  “It was exhilarating. It was exhilarating, it was energizing,” said Mr. Rickford in a video posted by the Cornell Daily Sun, the student newspaper. “And if they weren’t exhilarated by this challenge to the monopoly of violence, by this shifting of the balance of power, then they would not be human. I was exhilarated.”
