Fired by the University of Bristol because of his opposition to Zionism.

Joining us on this episode of Resistance TV is former sociology professor David Miller, who was sacked by the University of Bristol because of his opposition to Zionism.

He had been subjected to a vituperative campaign by the usual band of bad faith actors, including the Israeli funded Union of Jewish Students (UJS). He was also targeted by a parliamentary pile-on, which saw Conservative MPs sitting on the Education Select Committee using their position to attack him, and there was even a petition signed by over 100 parliamentarians absurdly alleging that David Miller's comments about the UJS threatened the safety of Jewish students on campus.

This weaponisation of anti-Semitism was dismissed by two QC-led inquiries who both completely exonerated him. But the university's management buckled in the face of Zionist pressure and sacked him anyway.

David Miller then took his case to an employment tribunal, which was eventually heard at the end of last year, and the tribunal's decision is expected later this month.
