‘Deeply Sick’: Over 30 Harvard University Groups Blame Israel After Hamas Commits Atrocities

A joint statement from dozens of groups of Harvard University students blamed Israel for the violence and atrocities committed by the deadly terrorist group Hamas in its attack against the Jewish state.

Despite Hamas committing war crimes, entering civilians’ homes and murdering babies, children, women, mothers and fathers, brutalizing the victims, the students claimed it was “entirely” Israel’s fault.

“We, the undersigned student organizations, hold the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence,” the Harvard Palestine Solidarity Groups on the Situation in Palestine wrote. “Today’s events did not occur in a vacuum. … The apartheid regime is the only one to blame.”

“31–yes 31–Harvard organizations have declared that the murders, rapes, kidnappings, and other atrocities committed by Hamas against innocent people are in no way the fault of Hamas, but are rather entirely the fault of … Israel. Something is deeply, deeply wrong in academia,” Princeton professor Robert George pointed out, adding: “As you will see, the groups include Harvard’s Amnesty International affiliate and organizations associated with the undergraduate college and many of the graduate and professional schools.”

Some also noted that the typical left-wing chant linking Israel to apartheid is quickly dispelled by a visit to the land, where one will witness Palestinians shopping, walking freely among Jews, and owning lavish homes in the areas of Judea and Samaria. Palestinians are represented in the Knesset, Israel’s parliament.

The Harvard students’ statement elicited furious reaction:

In contrast to the leftist Harvard students, famed historian Victor Davis Hanson tweeted, “Here we are 78 years after the end of the Holocaust and once again thuggish killers dressed in black are pulling Jewish elderly, women, and children out of their homes and executing them, and then throwing their bodies into the street. But in 1945 we were fighting the SS murderers, now we are sending millions in subsidies to their modern Hamas killer squad counterparts. We the American people should demand not one more American cent to these Gestapo and SS killers.”
