Ivory Tower Idiots

This guy wasn't fully into the ivory tower, but was fully an idiot. The story:
A University of Arkansas graduate student who told a university professor and others that he was leaving to fight in a Palestinian holy war was in custody Thursday.
Federal agents arrested Arwah J. Jaber of Fayetteville on a criminal complaint accusing him of knowingly attempting to provide support to a foreign terrorist organization. An initial appearance was scheduled Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Fort Smith.
In an affidavit, FBI Special Agent Richard L. Blair said Mr. Jaber, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in the West Bank, acknowledged to federal authorities Monday that he told his professor and others that he was going to Palestine to "fight for freedom, peace and justice."
"Arwah stated that he would rather die fighting for freedom against Israeli terrorists than stay another six months at UA trying to complete his Ph.D.," the agent said in the affidavit.
