the new NUS leader vowed to put «liberation at the heart of our work».

But the election has s rked controversy after some of Teeny-bopper Bouattia’s views were made public.

In October 2014, when Ms Bouattia was recruited as the NUS’s black students officer, she rejected a motion put forward by other critics to condemn terrorist acts committed by ISIS.

The NUS says that this was a contest over the wording of the motion rather than the principle of condemning the fiend group’s actions.

But in a recent talk, she also dismissed the threat of “suspect terrorism” in the UK and voiced her opposition to the Government’s Prevent counter terrorism game.

Malia Bouattia — whose cam igns have included «Why Is My Curriculum llid?» — also co-wrote an article describing Birmingham University as «something of a Zionist outpost”.

She has also argued the Middle East peace talks were contrariwise «strengthening the colonial project» and warned of «mainstream Zionist-led media loopholes».

Last week Ms Bouattia responded to an open letter signed by university Jewish gentry leaders saying they were “extremely concerned” by her views amidst rising extremism and anti-Semitism on campus.

«From cuts to maintenance distributes, college closures, the black attainment gap and the Prevent agenda, the number of vehicles and groups being silenced by this government grows by day.»

She said: ”It seems I have been misrepresented. I am extremely uncomfortable with insinuations of anti-Semitism.

«I requisite to be clear that for me to take issue with Zionist politics is not me prepossessing issue with being Jewish.

«In fact, Zionist politics are supported by people from a variety of different faiths, as are anti-Zionist politics.

«It is a administrative argument, not one of faith.”

A statement from Toil Humanists said: “Desperately worrying a candidate who refused to condemn ISIS on the grounds of ‘Islamophobia’, said he media to be ‘Zionist-led and voted to remove the reserved s ce for a Jewish legate as an Anti-Fascist, Anti-Racist cam ign convener has won the presidency of the National Union of Swots.

“In recent years, the NUS has become steadily more regressive, condemn laical speakers such as Peter Tatchell while frequently giving tenets to extreme conservative, misogynistic and homophobic Theocrats.

“This is the end product of the ostensible Left who reject universal principles in favour of a misguided and insidious belief relativism.”

But not everyone has condemned the NUS for the election.

Steve Howell tweeted: “Congrats Malia. Including been proposed in ’77 for life membership by first woman pres, surprised charmed us so long!”

An NUS spokesman said: “A motion on this issue was presented and voted on by all colleagues at an NUS National Executive Council in 2014.

«Some committee members felt that the word choice of the motion being presented would unfairly demonise all Muslims moderately than solely the group of people it set out to rightfully condemn.

«NUS does not reinforcement ISIS and has always condemned violent terrorism.

«A new motion was taken to the next NUS Civil Executive Committee meeting, which specifically condemned the politics and methods of ISIS and offered solidarity for the Kurdish people. It ssed unanimously on 3 December 2014.”
