An Oberlin College professor has filed a lawsuit because, she claims, another professor on the Oberlin faculty has harassed her and created a hostile work environment for female employees for years.
The plaintiff is Eunjung An, professor of French and cinema studies at the smallish liberal arts school about 35 miles southwest of Cleveland, Ohio, reports The Morning Journal News.
An alleges that comparative literature professor Ali Yedes informed an unnamed Oberlin employee last year that he had helped his nephew obtain a student visa to the United States expressly to “stab and kill someone from his department.”
According to the Oberlin College website, Yedes serves as the school’s “Muslim Religious Life Affiliate (Islamic Center of Cleveland).”
An’s lawsuit claims that Yedes has been engaged in a pattern of harassment since 2006 that includes loud, disruptive behavior in faculty meetings and pointing his finger in An’s face.
“His erratic and abusive behavior has caused immense instability in the department,” the lawsuit states, according to The Morning Journal News.
The suit — filed in early March — seeks at least $25,000 in damages from Oberlin on the theory that Oberlin has failed to address the continued harassment.
School representatives have not commented publicly on the allegations.
Oberlin is best known, of course, for a 2013 hoax involving two Obama-supporting white kids who allegedly circulated virulently racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages around campus. (RELATED: Meet the privileged white kids who perpetrated cruel Oberlin race hoax)
Meanwhile, in rural southern Thailand, Muslim terrorists shot and killed a Buddhist teacher who was riding to work on a motorbike.
A driver and a gunman passed by the teacher while also riding a single motorcycle. The gunman shot the 42-year-old woman twice in the head.
The two terrorists then drenched her body with gasoline and set her body on fire. They also sprinkled some anti-Buddhist flyers around the burning corpse. Then, they fled, reports Al Jazeera. They remain at large.
Over 5,000 people have been killed since the insurgency first began in 2004.
While Muslim terrorists in Thailand primarily target law enforcement officials and government employees, they also frequently kill teachers.
The unidentified teacher had taught English. Her death marks the 170th murder of a teacher by Muslim terrorists over the course of a years-long, still-raging Muslim insurgency in Thailand’s three southernmost provinces.
Thailand is predominantly Buddhist.
