Julio Pino’s email to George Mason University’s History News Network is addressed to the “academic friends of Israel”  and says he hold them “directly responsible for the murder of over 1,400 Palestinian children, women and elderly civilians over the past month.”

The e-mail says the academics’ names “are scrawled on every bullet fired, bomb dropped, body buried and burnt forehead in Gaza,” and accuses other professors of hiding “behind the mask of academic objectivity.”

Pino is a tenured professor of Latin American history at Kent State. He’s written other controversial emails and shouted “Death to Israel” during a 2011 forum on campus featuring a former Israel diplomat.

In a statement, Kent called his latest statements “reprehensible and irresponsible” and says the university values “collegiality and mutual respect.”

The History News Network web site describes its mission as helping to “put current events into historical perspective.”
