Meet the key figures propelling antisemitism at Harvard
October 11, 2023
Thirty-four student groups at Harvard University signed a letter earlier this week in response to the attack on Israel by Hamas that left 1,200 dead and at least 2,700 wounded. That letter blamed Israel for the attacks.
“We, the undersigned student organizations, hold the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence. The apartheid regime is the only one to blame,” the letter reads. “Israeli violence has structured every aspect of Palestinian existence for 75 years.”
The letter initially contained the names of the groups who signed the letter, but after widespread backlash, it was amended to say, “This statement was co-authored by a coalition of Palestine solidarity groups at Harvard. For student safety, the names of all original signing organizations have been concealed at this time.”
By the time it was amended, the list had already been spread far and wide. A few of the student groups have withdrawn their signatures, including Harvard College Act on a Dream, Amnesty International at Harvard, the Harvard Islamic Society, Harvard Undergraduate Ghungroo, and the Harvard Undergraduate Nepali Student Association, Harvard College Pakistan Student Association, and Sikhs and Companions of Harvard.
The remaining groups and members of their leadership stand by the letter and its inflammatory claims. To see the current list, click here to visit HarvardHatesJews.com.
