Harvard students expressed support for Palestinian terrorists amid the unprecedented terrorist attack on Israel this weekend. In a joint statement signed by at least 57 student groups, Ivy League students blamed Israel for the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas that killed 600 Israelis.
“We, the undersigned student organizations, hold the Israeli regime fully responsible for all of the violence that is taking place,” read a joint statement from numerous Harvard student groups.
This is the last crack in my broken heart – a joint declaration of @Harvard students. I could sit in class with these students, watching children brutally murdered, raped, kidnapped and their mutated bodies torn apart by a jeering mob – and understand why this is justified. pic.twitter.com/UTi60Y2omJ

“Today’s events did not occur in a vacuum,” the statement continued. “Over the past two decades, millions of Palestinians in Gaza have been forced to live in an open-air prison. “Israeli officials promise to ‘open the gates of hell,’ and the massacres in Gaza have already begun.”
“Palestinians in Gaza have no shelter to run to and nowhere to escape,” the Harvard students added. “In the coming days, Palestinians will be forced to bear the full brunt of Israeli violence. »
Harvard student groups then claimed that Israel was “solely responsible” for the terrorist attacks that left hundreds of Israelis dead over the weekend.
“The apartheid regime is solely responsible,” they said. “Israeli violence has structured every aspect of Palestinian existence for 75 years. From systematic land seizures to routine airstrikes, arbitrary detentions at military checkpoints, forced family separations and targeted killings, Palestinians have been forced to live in a state of slow death. and sudden.
Student groups then demanded that the Harvard community “take action” against Israel.
“Today, the Palestinian ordeal enters uncharted territory. The coming days will require a firm stance against colonial reprisals,” they said. “We call on the Harvard community to take action to end the ongoing annihilation of Palestinians. »
Sophia Witt, vice president of the Student Movement Supporting Israel, told Breitbart News that “the lack of humanity from this group of students is astounding. The justification for the killings, kidnappings and torture of innocent Israeli lives is proof of the true intentions of these groups and their hatred towards the Jewish people. »
“The people of Gaza who are suffering from the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas are not represented by the statements of these student social justice warriors,” Witt added. “Their strategic negligence, even labeling Hamas in their statement, demonstrates the ignorance and sympathy these groups have towards the terrorist actions of Hamas, whose charter is actively being deployed, and is listed as follows:
“The Day of Judgment will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them. Then the Jews will hide behind the rocks and the trees, and the rocks and the trees will cry out: “O Muslim, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him.” » (article 7)
“We are seeing a wave of students in solidarity with the Hamas terrorists who are responsible for this heinous genocide of hundreds of Israelis,” Witt said. “These students have no place on our campuses and should be challenged for who they really are: supporters of terrorism. »
As Breitbart News reported, the Iran-backed terrorist group Hamas killed more than 600 Israelis, injured thousands and kidnapped around 100 over the weekend. The Palestinian terrorist attack occurred on the Jewish holiday of Shemini Atzeret, the last day of the annual High Holiday cycle.
