Incendiary joint statement from Harvard student groups blame Israel for Hamas attacks
October 9, 2023
In response to Hamas’ mass killing in Gaza, 31 student organizations at Harvard University released a statement holding Israel “entirely responsible.”
“We, the undersigned student organizations, hold the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence,” the letter says. “The apartheid regime is the only one to blame.”
Yes, they are blaming the Jews for Jews being killed.
Another version of the same declaration, titled “Joint Statement by Harvard Palestine Solidarity Groups on the Situation in Palestine, says, “We, the undersigned student organizations, hold the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence.”
This is the statement of the domestic violence perpetrator – you made me do it.
“Today, the Palestinian ordeal enters into uncharted territory. The coming days will require a firm stand against colonial retaliation. We call on the Harvard community to take action to stop the ongoing annihilation of Palestinians.”
The letter was signed by groups including Harvard’s affiliate of Amnesty International, the African American Resistance Organization, Amnesty International, the Harvard Islamic Society and Harvard Jews for Liberation.
The letter has received swift and widespread criticism.
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.

Accuracy in Media has been following antisemitism on college campuses. Last year, several Berkeley Law groups publicly banned pro-Israel speakers, so AIM sent mobile billboards to campus and gave students the chance to respond in a man-on-the-street video. They doubled down. So we named names and sent mobile billboards to their homes over Berkeley’s holiday break.

We’ve fought antisemitic students more directly and more aggressively than any pro-Israel student group in country, and we’re going to do it again in a big way.
