Chicago Prof at School of the Art Institute Slammed for Posts Saying ‘Israelis are Pigs’

An associate professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago is under fire for antisemitic comments she posted on social media calling Israeli’s “pigs” and “savages.”

Dr. Mika Tosca, a climate scientist and activist, slammed the Jewish State in an Instagram story amid the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.

“Israelis are pigs. Savages,” she wrote. “Very bad people. Irredeemable excrement.”

She called Israel’s defense against Hamas – the terrorist group that killed more than 1,400 people and has kidnapped more than 200 others since Oct. 7 – “propaganda” that is “downright evil.”

“After the past week, if your eyes aren’t open to the crimes against humanity that Israel is committing and has committed for decades, and will continue to commit, then I suggest you open them,” she added.

“It’s disgusting and grotesque. May they all rot in hell.”

Tosca’s comments were flagged by the StopAntisemitism nonprofit group, who condemned the statements and alerted them to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC).

“@saic_news your Israeli and Jewish students deserve better than being taught by this hate filled instructor,” the organization wrote on X.

 Liora Rez, StopAntisemitism’s Executive Director told The Post in a statement: “As reports of antisemitism continue to pour in, we demand administrators hold Dr. Mika Tosca fully accountable for her vile bigotry.

“She must be investigated for her horrible sentiments. Jewish students deserve to feel safe on campus and people like her make that impossible when they’re unapologetically antisemitic.”

The school said in a statement to the post that it was aware of the “hateful views” Tosca shared on social media and that SAIC “repudiates” them. 

“Those views are not reflective of the School or the values we as a community share,” officials said.

Tosca did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.
