A college in Ohio is facing fresh criticism for continuing to give a platform to a so-called “professor of peace,” Mohammad Jafar Mahallati, who as Iranian ambassador to the United Nations urged the elimination of the Jewish state.
A Fox News Digital investigation can reveal for the first time that Mahallati, a professor of Islamic Studies at Oberlin College in Ohio, declared to the U.N. in 1988: “The adoption, by the General Assembly in 1947, of resolution 181 (II) on the partition of the land of Palestine and the establishment of the Zionist entity was itself in violation of provisions of the United Nations Charter, as well as of the rules of international law.”
Mahallati’s letters and speeches, reviewed by Fox News, covered the 1980s, particularly while he served as the Islamic Republic’s envoy to the United Nations from 1987 to 1989. Mahallati denied the right of Israel to exist as a state, according to human rights and anti-Semitism experts.
