According to the FBI, a professor from Kent State University is under investigation for alleged association with the Islamic state and reportedly the ISIS(ISIL) organization.

Julio Pino, an associate history professor, has been under investigation for a year and a half and according to federal authorities, is still teaching at the university.

In 2011, Pino, a controversial figure on campus, shouted “Death to Israel” during a speech by a former Israeli diplomat. Pino asked the diplomat how Israel could justify assisting countries with “blood money” that came from the deaths of Palestinian natives.

The FBI has reported that this is an on-going investigation and would not provide additional information, yet has assured Kent State there is no threat to campus.
