FBI Investigating Professor As Suspected ISIS Recruiter

During his time as a professor at Kent State, Julio Pino viciously criticized the US and affirmed his support for Islamic radicals. His hatred for the US was exceeded perhaps only by his hatred for Israel, writing columns and letters attacking both and at one point even explicitly using the term “jihad” approvingly.

“In 2002, Pino, a convert to Islam, wrote a column praising a teenaged Palestinian suicide bomber as a martyr, saying her actions should be ‘pronounced ‘justice’ and spelled C-O-U-R-A-G-E.' At the time, a colleague of Pino’s noted that he enjoyed wearing military-style camouflage around town, but described it as a ‘fashion statement.'

In 2011, Pino attracted national attention when he shouted ‘Death to Israel!' during a lecture on campus by an Israeli diplomat.

More recently, during Israel’s 2014 incursion into the Gaza Strip, Pino authored an open letter suggesting that academics who support Israel should be killed.

‘You have chosen to openly work for and brag about academic collaboration with a regime that is the spiritual heir to Nazism,' he said. ‘We both know the fate of collaborators.' The letter ended with the declaration ‘Jihad until victory!'

Despite his repeated outbursts, Pino was able to keep his job at Kent State, receiving a salary subsidized by Ohio taxpayers.”
