Bob Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots and founder of The Foundation to Combat Antisemitism, has announced he will stop funding Columbia University. He expressed concerns over the university’s ability to protect its students amidst what he describes as extreme anti-Semitism by pro-Palestinian protesters, especially in the wake of the October 7 Hamas attack on Israel. Kraft’s decision comes from his disappointment with the current environment at Columbia University, his alma mater, stating that the institution he once valued highly no longer meets his expectations in ensuring a safe educational atmosphere. He urges the university to take immediate action to address these issues and restore trust among its supporters and community.
