He said, “From the river to the sea” is an antisemitic statement meaning the Israeli state and its people should be erased. This is an appalling and grotesquely offensive comment.

I represent a constituency with a significant Jewish population and Belfast’s only Synagogue, Queen’s University need to fully investigate this incident and if any staff members were involved in spreading this racist statement.

They need to take firm action.

This cannot go unchallenged. There needs to be a clear statement from the University condemning this action.

I want to see the hostages freed and peace talks advanced so there can be an end of the killing.”
