Pro-Hamas protests show how higher education has finally crossed the line
Higher education may have finally crossed the line.
With the horrific massacre, rapes and infant murders and kidnappings Hamas proudly perpetrated in Israel, much of the American academic community, especially at elite universities, sided with . . . Hamas.
It is not playing well.
Harvard has been the most talked-about example, because, well, it’s Harvard.
Dozens of Harvard student groups released a remarkably callous statement saying Israel’s government is “entirely responsible” for Hamas’ violence.
And Harvard’s President Claudine Gay released an initial statement so ham-handed that she spent the rest of the week trying to row it back.
The Harvard students have since deleted their statement, though it still lives on the Internet, of course.
