Pennsylvania — Two Pennsylvania lawmakers were questioning officials at a state-supported university after a professor publicly called for the destruction of Israel.

In a letter Wednesday to the president of Lincoln University, state Sens. Daylin Leach and Anthony Williams ask if the professor is expressing anti-Semitic views on campus.

Video of a September 3 rally in Washington, DC, showed tenured literature professor Kaukab Siddique saying Israel must be destroyed, "if possible by peaceful means."
