Ilhan Omar’s Daughter Suspended from University for Anti-Israel Protest

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar‘s daughter has been suspended from the University for involvement in an anti-Israel protest, according to reports.

Isra Hirsi was suspended from the $90,000 per year Barnard College in New York City on Thursday.

Hirsi posted on X:

“[I’m] an organizer with CU Apartheid Divest @ColumbiaSJP, in my 3 years at @BarnardCollege i have never been reprimanded or received any disciplinary warnings i just received notice that i am 1 of 3 students suspended for standing in solidarity with Palestinians facing a genocide.”

“[T]hose of us in Gaza Solidarity Encampment will not be intimidated. we will stand resolute until our demands are met,” she added in another post on X.

“Our demands include divestment from companies complicit in genocide, transparency of @Columbia’s investments and FULL amnesty for all students facing repression.”

Apartheid Divest said in a statement that Hirsi and two other students were notified of their suspension, according to the New York Post.

An email from Dean Leslie Grinage read:

“This decision is based on information received from Columbia University Public Safety that you have been involved in an unauthorized encampment on the Columbia University campus and you have not ceased participation in this unauthorized encampment despite repeated requests from Barnard and Columbia on April 17, 2024 that you do so.”

Omar expressed support for the protest on X:

“Columbia has always had an incredible history of students fighting for a more just world and it’s good to see that tradition continue. As NYPD surrounds young activists, I hope their concerns are heard by school administrators and they not be criminalized. In solidarity.”

Hirsi’s suspension came following the arrest of three people for their roles in the protest on Columbia’s campus.

Additional arrests took place on Thursday, with Hirsi being among them.

Columbia University President Nemat Shafik condemned the protest:

“I have determined that the encampment and related disruptions pose a clear and present danger to the substantial functioning of the University,” she wrote in a memo to police.

Shafik said anti-Israel protesters were amaging campus property and refusing to end their demonstration.

“Columbia is committed to allowing members of our community to engage in political expression — within established rules and with respect for the safety of all,” the memo said.

Shafik denounced anti-Semitism during a congressional hearing Wednesday.

“There has been a recent attack on the democratic rights of students across the country,” Omar said.
