More Anti-Semitism At Florida Atlantic University- Noor Fawzy Gets Prestigious Award

Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in Boca Raton, has been party to some major controversies recently- from the "Jesus-stomping" incident, to anti-Semitic activities, to professor James Tracey's loony conspiracy theories about Sandy Hook and the Boston Marathon bombing, to naming the stadium after the for-profit prison corporation GEO Group, which fell through after major protests.
President Mary Jane Saunders was even forced to step down after all the flak. We can now add one more to the bucket full of missteps: honoring the leader of Students for Justice in Palestine, Noor Fawzy, with the very prestigious 2013 Wimberly award. Only one student receives the award per year.

Political Science Major Noor Fawzy received FAU’s 2013 Stan and Renee Wimberly Scholar award, the most prestigious student academic prize given by the university. It is awarded in recognition of outstanding academic achievement, along with evidence of leadership, campus involvement and community service.

Way to go, FAU.
