'Punch a Zionist' tweeter steps down from McGill student union post

The McGill student politician who urged Twitter users to 'punch a Zionist today' has quit as a director of the university students' society, according to B'Nail Brith Canada.

But the saga of Igor Sadikov isn't quite over yet.

He remains on the Student Society of McGill University's Legislative Council — though he faces an impeachment vote on Mar. 9.

Sadikov has been under fire for the four-word tweet ever since he posted it on Feb. 6. He has since deleted his Twitter account.

He has since expressed regret for the tweet, explaining that his choice of words meant to express his opposition to Zionism and colonialism was poorly thought out.
