An MIT student was told to remove an Israeli flag from his dorm window because it was deemed a hazard. University administrators last month told Jonathan Goler that hanging the flag “outside a window, in a ‘public space,’ violates MIT housing rules and regulations,” according to MIT’s student newspaper, The Tech. Goler, who has refused to take down the flag, said he initially was told to remove it because a fellow resident found it offensive, the paper reported. The president of Goler’s dormitory, who is authorized to decide the matter, said dorm policies “prohibit any object or posting on any doors or corridors inside the building as well as on the exterior.”
