TALLAHASSEE, FL—A part-time college professor will not be allowed back at his university after he called for Jews to "return to exile" in parts of Europe.

Danny Krikorian, a U.S. Government professor at Valencia College in Orlando, proposed the existence of an "Arab Federation" encompassing municipal Arab states, represented by "The flag of the Arab people. The flag of Palestine," he wrote on X. He explained that Jews who live in Muslim areas—Mizrahi Jews—would be granted a "small autonomous municipality" called Judea.

As for other Jewish people? He called for a "sovereign federation" in which non-Mizrahi Jews would "return to exile in Europe." Germany, Russia, Poland, Ukraine & the Caucasus, Azerbaijan, and Georgia."

Rep, Randy Fine stated that Krikorian was "going to have a bad week" after his posts,  and he did,

These comments caused the popular X account, StopAntisemitism, to call on Valencia College's president to "look into" the situation. AntiSemitism, which has over 300K followers, has since deleted the May 26th post.

Valencia College promptly responded, "This part-time instructor is not currently employed at Valencia College and has not been issued any future teaching assignments." Krikorian, however, still has the university in his X bio.

After StopAntisemitism condemned Krikorian, he quote tweeted the post over 30 times: begging various accounts to help him, as he has sacrificed "myself", "my life", or "my livelihood" for Palestine. He asked for protection from the "harassment" from "Zionist Jews" and "Jewish Americans", calling pro-Israel supporters "neo-Nazis" in the process.

Krikorian, who also has a hip-hop account, announced that he is suing the StopAntisemitism account for defamation, citing "health issues related to my disabilities" that have been triggered by the "distress caused by violent threats and intimidation by Jewish extremists."

He did not elaborate on which health issues he had incurred from the social media post.
