Shai Davidai, an assistant professor at Columbia University, has taken a stand against university presidents who have failed to condemn the attacks by Hamas terrorists on Israeli civilians.

In a viral video, he called for accountability and protection of Jewish students from pro-Hamas groups on campuses.

Davidai acknowledged the potential consequences, including the risk of being fired, but felt compelled to speak out. (Trending: Obama Says the Unthinkable to Israel)

He emphasized the need for college presidents to take a moral stance against rape, torture, and the targeting of civilians.

“I am an assistant professor at Columbia Business School. I am a father, a husband, an uncle, and a son. I am a forty-year-old man, and last week I found myself crying in front of a group of complete strangers,” he began.

“I pleaded with the presidents of colleges and universities all around the country to take a clear moral stance against rape and torture and the kidnapping of helpless civilians,” he continued. (Trending: Jimmy Kimmel Quietly Fired From Job)

“I pleaded with colleges and universities to live up to their stated mission of humanism and enlightenment. I pleaded—and still plead—because the silence of college presidents all across the country is deafening.”

“I am not tenured. I could be fired for this,” he said, but he went on to say that he was willing to take the chance.

“If my research into behavioral psychology has taught me anything, it’s that looking back on my life, I am more likely to regret not taking a stance,” he said. “I can’t afford not to take a stance. Not when students’ lives are on the line. Not when my children’s lives are on the line.”

“This is not about me. I’m not some leader. I’m just a dad,” he said. “I’m just a dad who is scared and who is willing to put EVERYTHING on the line to protect his children.”

Davidai highlighted the importance of supporting innocent Palestinians while condemning Hamas’ atrocities.

He urged others to join him in pressuring organizations and universities to take a stand against violence.
