Kent State Professor Under FBI Investigation for Recruiting Students to Islamic State

BizPak Review reports: A professor at Kent State University (KSU) in Ohio famous for his anti-Israel outbursts is now being investigated by the FBI for possibly being an Islamic State recruiter.

An unnamed FBI special agent told KentWired, KSU’s student newspaper, that associate history professor Julio Pino has been under investigation for about a year and a half.

According to KentWired, several faculty members and over 20 students have been interviewed about Pino’s behavior. The FBI is looking into possible connections between Pino and ISIS, as well as allegations that Pino attempted to recruit Kent State students to join the extremist group.

The investigation was confirmed by a Kent State official.

“Kent State is fully cooperating with the FBI,” spokesman Eric Mansfield said in a statement. “As this is an ongoing investigation, we will have no further comment.” Mansfeld said they had no reason to believe the university itself was in any danger.

Pino himself was reached by the Akron Beacon Journal, and vehemently denied any support for ISIS.
