Video: Washington University Student Senator Fadel Alkilani Was Filmed Throwing Away 2,977 American Flags From A 9/11 Memorial – Receive No Punishment

A student senator at Washington University is being accused of snatching up 2,977 American flags to commemorate the lives lost in the 9/11 terror attacks on the 20th anniversary before throwing them in trash bags.

Fadel Alkilani, who serves as chairman of the student senate finance committee at the St Louis, Missouri university, is allegedly seen filling blue trash bags with the minature flags used as part of the 9/11: Never Forget Project memorial.

A video posted to Twitter by the Young Americans for Freedom, show as the cameraman confronts Alkilani.

‘Who are you?’ Alkilani asks the cameraman, identified as Nathaniel Hope, a member of the university’s College Republicans.

Hope described Alkilani as showing ‘no remorse’ before claiming the flags were a ‘violation of school rules.’

‘I did not violate any university or legal policy. Now go away,’ Alkilani told YAF.

Late Saturday, Washington University officials condemned the removal of the flags but declined to say whether the student would be disciplined, according to Student Life, the university’s student newspaper.

Meanwhile, Alkilani allegedly boasted about the act on his Twitter, which has since been set to private.

He claimed the move was done in ‘protest against American imperialism and the 900,000 lives lost as a result of post 9/11 war.’

Fox News reports that he had tried to destroy the memorial a night prior on Friday, but was stopped by campus police while doing so, students said.

A clear illustration of what is being taught in our institutions of higher learning. This type of behavior needs to have strong consequences against this man. His actions are offensive not only to the University, but to the nation as well. If he is not an American citizen, he needs to be expelled from the nation altogether.
