Submitted by jenn (United States), Apr 3, 2003 at 16:45

Nicholas De Genova Is calling for the mass murder of American soldiers. Have we forgotten that freedom isn't free and that were it not for the brave there would be no home of the free....

Do we really want this... teaching our kids? I've included contact information for Mr. Nicholas De Genova and his boss...The only way we can let Columbia University know our feelings is to demand his immediate dimissal.

Mr. De Genova's comments...

Wishing for 'a Million Mogadishus'
A professor at Columbia University in New York is publicly calling for the massacre of American troops in Iraq and praising as heroes those who kill them, reports Newsday.
In a six-hour "teach-in" at the college, Nicholas De Genova, an assistant professor of anthropology, said he would like to see "a million Mogadishus" -- a reference to the city in Somalia where 18 American soldiers were ambushed and killed in 1993.
"The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military," De Genova told the audience of about 3,000. "I personally would like to see a million Mogadishus."
The crowd was pretty much silent in response to the remark, but cheered loudly when he later said, "If we really believe that this war is criminal ... then we have to believe in the victory of the Iraqi people and the defeat of the U.S. war machine."
