Nicola Perugini, in May 2020, he shows a screenshot of a portion of article [https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/07/opinion/contributors/annexing-west-bank-israel-palestinians.html]:

"Annexing the West Bank Would Hurt Israel"

By Daniel Pipes

May 7, 2020
[...] Sixth, annexation would be likely to make more Palestinians eligible to become citizens of Israel. That would be a profound mistake, since its Arab citizens constitute what I believe is the ultimate enemy of Israel's status as a Jewish state, the one that will still be standing after the threats posed by Iran and Gaza have been dealt with. Citizens of Israel, unlike external enemies, cannot be defeated. Their allegiance must be won over, and the larger their number, the harder that becomes.

He highlights the words "That would be a profound mistake, since its Arab citizens constitute what I believe is the ultimate enemy of Israel's status as a Jewish state"... and brands it "racist."

Now, clearly he erred in his emotional anti Israel usual tirade. Pipes obviously didn't talk about Arabs being a "threat" per se, or as propagandists try to sound the "bad arabs" often false alarm.. but about the fact of contradicting the state's make up of the population.

But it shows a distorted fanatic anti Israel. An inciter.

WELL, HERE ARE SOME MORE "BEAUTIES", JUST FROM 2020:

CALLS SETTLEMENTS A "WAR CRIME"

Nicola Perugini (@PeruginiNic) Tweeted:

Dear @eDreams, @opodo, @AirbnbHelp, @bookingcom, the United Nations says that you are providing services which are crucial to the perpetration of human rights violations and war crimes (illegal settlements in occupied territories). Can you please explain? https://t.co/RRhtJF5zmV https://twitter.com/PeruginiNic/status/1227907979221065735?s=20

He authored a "book" on human shields together with infamous Neve Gordon, whose "wonderful" articles appeared on neo nazi sites and has called in 2009 to boycott Israel and intimidated student who criticized his anti Jewish incitement in 2007: [https://israelbehindthenews.com/2009/08/25/studying-with-prof-neve-gordon-at-the-university-of-michigan/]

An Israeli student in the large class raised his hand and told Gordon that he was offended by his phraseology and said Gordon was bordering on anti-Semitism by deeming these roads "Jewish roads." The student described for the class the complete freedom of movement of Israeli Arabs (Arabs with Israeli citizenship) on Israeli roads inside Israel and inside the West Bank. Therefore by calling the roads "Jewish" and not Israeli Gordon was being anti-Semitic. Gordon again simply disregarded the challenge to his biased teaching and appeared irritated.

The same Israeli student that challenged Gordon received a terse email after class that same day from Gordon requesting that the student come see him at his office at an appointment two days later. The student arrived at Gordon's office and was surprised to see his Graduate Student Instructor (who directly grades the student) present as well. The student cordially greeted Gordon in Hebrew but did not receive the same warm greeting in return.

Gordon then proceeded to berate the student for publicly embarrassing and offending him during class. He belittled the student by telling him that he (Gordon) had been teaching for longer than the student20had been alive and that he had never been embarrassed and offended like that before. Behind closed doors, intimidated by his professor yelling at him, and in the presence of the person who decides his grade, the student quickly apologized and hoped the matter was put to rest. Much to the student's dismay, in the next lecture Gordon attempted to clear his name and denounced the student's challenging questions as unfair and unfounded, while publicly humiliating the student. .
