Harvard Students Demand University Condemn “Israel”

Harvard Students Demand University Condemn, "Israel"

“The current escalation of violence against Palestinians in Palestine and in Israel follows years of systematic oppression and ethnic cleansing committed by the State of Israel,” the Harvard students and student organizations proclaim in their petition, which has garnered hundreds of student signatures.

The students’ petition is in reaction to Israel unleashing airstrikes against Palestinian terrorists after the terrorists launched dozens of rockets at Israel from Gaza.

The petition goes on to call on the university to divest from all companies that are involved in the so-called “illegal Israeli settlement enterprise,” pushing pro-BDS sentiments.

“We call on our university to end its complicity with Israeli apartheid policies and occupation by removing its investments in companies that are involved in the illegal Israeli settlement enterprise until equal rights are guaranteed for all citizens in Israel and Palestine,” the petition reads.

The BDS [Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions] movement seeks to systematically destroy the world’s only Jewish state through financial means, by boycotting companies that do business with Israel.

The petition also urges students to call on the U.S. State Department and Department of Defense to “Demand the end of Israel’s forced displacement of Palestinians from East Jerusalem.”

“Educate yourself and your community about human rights abuses in Palestine,” the petition states. “Write, tweet, and share on social media platforms, but above all, reach out to your representatives at the federal and local levels.”

    AHH! Kids today, know not what they do, they know not what they say. Give ’em all a decade or two, and they will be in step with many of their Harvard Israeli and Jewish Alumni

    Dear Students! Please feel Free to leave Harvard University and join those living in Palestine. Demonstrate and make your demands there after you have experienced and lived their lives.
