In what seems to be an escalation of his previous public comments, tenured Kent State University professor Julio Pino is using his personal Facebook page not only to post anti-Semitic epithets and threats, but also to declare his solidarity with the terrorist group ISIS.
In August, we saw the incendiary, anti-Semitic Facebook posts by Pino, the Cuban-born associate history professor who converted to Islam in 2000. Dr. Pino’s posts supported Hamas, made vile, racist comments about Jews and Israelis, and even seemed to support ISIS. Pino, who has a long history of anti-Semitic behavior, also vowed that he wouldn’t work with fellow staff members who supported Israel:“Collaborate with no one who collaborates with Israel, and let her or him know why. I have started with the head of our ‘Religious Studies’ program, who sends student-dupes to Israel every year.” Pino remains employed by the taxpayer-supported university and it seems he has been emboldened by the cover Kent State is providing for him.
In a post this week, he declared, “We will wage jihad from al-Quds to Canada!” Pino posted this comment along with a video from Russia Today (the state-funded news outlet) showing allegedly “uncut” footage of the “bloody caliphate” in Iraq.
In another post with a link to a YouTube video warning of a possible Islamic State attack in New York City, Pino calls a Canadian jihadist his brother: “Canadian Brother from ISIS ‘We love being attacked! We seek martyrdom!'”
On Friday, Pino posted a link to a BBC article warning that the Islamic State is setting its sights on Saudi Arabia, where the Muslim holy site of Mecca is located. “No Sleep Till Mecca!” Pino vowed.
Back in October, Pino scoffed at reports that ISIS is a great military threat. “From the bourgeois media: ‘ISIS is the greatest military threat the U.S. has faced since 1945.’ You mean that whole Cold War, nuclear arms race, Korea, Viet Nam thing was for kids?” he asked.
Last week Pino applauded the Ayatollah Khamenei, calling him his “favorite tweeter.”
Here’s the tweet that got Pino so excited:

Pino continues to use his Facebook page to post anti-Semitic propaganda. “We may not be able to defeat these swine, but we don’t have to join them,” Pino wrote on November 10, accompanied by a picture of a burning Israeli flag.
“A Sweet Intifada is Brewing,” Pino wrote above an article about a Palestinian stabbing an Israeli soldier.
If you’re disturbed that Pino is indoctrinating impressionable college students at Kent State, you’ll be horrified to know that he’s also apparently recruiting and training young children at the local gym. Perhaps it’s not just radicalized mosques we need to worry about.
“Last night at the gym this kid, no more than ten years old, comes up to me and asks, ‘Are you Mr. Pino?’ and when I replied in the affirmative he said, ‘I support what you do. We should not be on the side of Israel.’ Now I know the revolution is safe into the next generation,” Pino wrote last month.
A Facebook friend named Adeela Islam commented, “The gym is exactly where Julio train, discipline, and prepare the new generation in all round fitness. Isn’t is so, Julio?”
“Your local gym is a great place to train for Jihad,” Pino responded.
And in case anyone thinks Pino’s version of jihad is that benign-sounding “striving” or “struggle” that moderate Muslims like to talk about, there’s this:
“Find a representative of gluttony or oppression and blow the motherfu**er’s head off”
Welcome to American academia in the year 2014.
State Rep. Andrew Brenner, vice chair of the House Education Committee, said, “He appears to be working for the Muslim brotherhood right out of Kent State.” Brenner plans to review Pino’s history and Facebook posts in more detail.
The average Kent State associate professor salary is $80,132, plus another $25,000 in benefits, a percentage of that funded by taxpayers. Despite Pino’s increasingly erratic and threatening behavior, the university has taken no disciplinary action against him, other than to offer a toothless condemnation.
The university did not respond to a request for a comment about Dr. Pino’s most recent Facebook posts.
