A letter condemning an Oberlin professor’s anti-Semitic Facebook posts has reportedly garnered signatures from the majority of the Ohio college’s faculty members, but has generated criticism from some professors of African studies.

Politics professor Marc Blecher, one of the letter’s organizers and drafters, told JTA in an email that 174 faculty members have signed the letter but that their names are “not for publication.” The other faculty members involved in writing and circulating the letter, which says “we condemn any manifestation of bigotry on our campus — especially from our faculty,” also wish to remain anonymous, Blecher said.

The letter does not name Joy Karega, the rhetoric and composition professor whose posts, including one accusing Israel and “Rothschild-led bankers” of responsibility for downing a Malaysian airliner over Ukraine in 2014, drew widespread attention after The Tower published an article about them in February.
