Leftist Columbia Student Protest Leader: ‘Zionists Don’t Deserve to Live’

A radical leftist student leader of Columbia University’s anti-Israel “Gaza Solidarity Encampment” has openly declared that “Zionists don’t deserve to live.”

The statement was made by pro-Hamas protest organizer Khymani James, who claims to “use he/she/they pronouns.”

He made the comments about Zionists during a meeting with university officials which he live-streamed on social media.

In the video, James is speaking with members of Columbia’s Center for Student Success and Intervention office.

During the meeting, James likens Israelis to Hitler and the Nazis before declaring that “Zionists don’t deserve to live.”

“What is a Zionist? A White supremacist,” James said.

“So let’s be very clear here,” James also said in the video.

“I’m not saying that I’m going to go out and start killing Zionists.

“What I’m saying is that if an individual that identifies as a Zionist threatens my physical safety in person, i.e., puts their hands on me, I am going to defend myself.

“And in that scenario, it may come to a point where I don’t know when to stop.”

In a speech to the camera, James said Zionists should “not exist.”

“I feel very comfortable, very comfortable, calling for those people to die,” James asserted.

“Be grateful that I’m not just going out and murdering Zionists,” he said at another point.

“I’ve never hurt anyone in my life, and I hope to keep it that way.”

James also claimed that Zionists have a hateful ideology, likening them to “Nazis.”

“There should not be Zionists anywhere. Zionists or Nazis,” James said.

“And so if we can agree as a society, as a collective, that people, that people, that persons, some persons, need to die if they have an ideology that results in the death of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions, if there are people like that who exist, shouldn’t they die?”

“Why would we want people who are supporters of genocide to live? I’m confused!” James said.

“Zionists, along with all white supremacists, need to not exist, because they actively kill and harm vulnerable people,” James said.

“They stop the world from progressing.”


A spokesman for the office reportedly told the Daily Wire that James may face disciplinary measures for the statement.

“While we do not comment on individual cases when there are violations of student conduct policies, they are reviewed and disciplinary measures are applied,” the spokesman said.

James, a junior at Columbia, has been recently quoted in outlets such as CBS News and The New York Times as a spokesman for the anti-Israel protests at Columbia.

In 2021, he was profiled in the Boston Globe at age 17 about his “confrontational” approach to fighting “injustice.”

On the day after Hamas’s massacre of more than 1,000 Israelis, James began his anti-Israel activism on X.

“Free Palestine” he declared while terrorists were still in civilian communities in southern Israel.

The comments from James come after a viral video emerged showing two leftist protesters admitting they have no idea why they are demonstrating against Israel.

As Slay News reported, the video shows a young woman at Monday night’s NYU protest.

She struggles to answer when asked what the “goal” of the demonstration was.

“I think the goal is just showing our support for Palestine and demanding that NYU stops — I honestly don’t know all of what NYU is doing,” she tells the interviewer.

“I really don’t know,” she admits.

“I’m pretty sure they are…”

She then asks her friend for help in explaining.

“Do you know what NYU is doing?” she asks.

They both admit they have no idea.

“I wish I was more educated,” the friend, who is wearing a Covid mask outdoors, admits.

“I’m not [educated] either,” the first woman adds.
