Aside from possibly recruiting students for the Islamic State, Julio Pino is no different from hundreds of professors all over the country, indoctrinating students to hate America, hate Israel, and welcome the advancing jihad.

“Kent State University professor under FBI investigation for alleged ties to ISIS,” by Christopher Brennan, New York Daily News, January 20, 2016:

The associate professor told the site that he does not support Islamic State and has never discussed the group in his classes.

In 2002, he wrote a eulogy for a teenage Palestinian suicide bomber published in the student newspaper….
