NYU Graduate Student Investigated After ‘F**k Israel’ Vandalism

A New York University graduate student, Naye Idriss, is under investigation after she wrote “Free Palestine” and “Fuck Israel” on a mailbag at the university’s library, according to NGO StopAntisemitism, a watchdog group that monitors antisemitism. Idriss worked in the library as an Arabic translator, leading NYU to open an investigation. Idriss said her actions cost her the job.

Idriss, who was born and raised in Beirut, Lebanon, is a graduate of Columbia University and is studying at the Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies at NYU, according to a tweet by StopAntisemitism. 

In 2022, StopAntisemitism issued a report grading 25 US schools based on antisemitic climate. NYU received a failing grade.  At NYU, the review said, “students report a hostile and anti-Semitic environment when their identity or Zionist beliefs are expressed.

The report went on to say that student groups at NYU, as well as Columbia University, approved resolutions supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against the Jewish State of Israel.
