Columbia grad’s mic gets cut off during anti-Israel commencement rant

Metro, US News, college protests, columbia university, israel

A Columbia University student’s microphone appears to have been cut off just moments after she started delivering an anti-Israel commencement speech rant.

Saham David Ahmed Ali tore into the Ivy League school as she delivered the class speaker address at the Mailman School of Public Health’s commencement ceremony on Tuesday.

Video shows the moment the student’s mic suddenly appeared to start glitching as she was midway through ripping Columbia’s silence over the ongoing Gaza war.

The microphone cut off several more times over the next few seconds, prompting those in the crowd to start chanting “let her speak.”

It wasn’t immediately clear if the microphone was intentionally cut.
