Harvard students blame ‘apartheid regime’ for Israel-Gaza war, alumni react Israel-Palestine conflict news

Prominent Harvard alumni expressed outrage after a coalition of student organizations released a pro-Palestinian letter.

A coalition of 34 Harvard University student organizations has issued a pro-Palestinian statement in response to the ongoing Israel-Gaza war, drawing outrage from the university’s prominent alumni.

Students from the most influential university in United States politics said in a statement published Monday that they hold the Israeli regime “fully responsible for all forms of violence” between Palestinians and Israelis after decades of occupation, they said. That the “apartheid regime” is the only one to blame”.

Harvard has produced eight former presidents and four of the nine current Supreme Court justices.

Organizations signing the letter include Muslim and Palestinian aid groups, as well as others from diverse backgrounds, including Harvard Jews for Liberation and the African American Resistance Organization.

Prominent Harvard University alumni on Monday condemned a pro-Palestinian statement and urged the university to take action against the signatories.

Harvard President Lawrence Summers, former U.S. Treasury Secretary under Democratic President Bill Clinton and former university president, was one of several Harvard graduates to criticize the current Harvard leadership for failing to respond.

Republican U.S. Representative from New York and Harvard graduate Elise Stefanik called the statement “disgusting and heinous” for condoning the “slaughter of innocent women and children.”

Republican US Senator Ted Cruz, a graduate of Harvard Law School, wrote on Twitter: “What the hell is wrong with Harvard?”

Harvard’s senior leadership, including President Claudine Gay and 15 deans, issued a statement on Monday saying they were “saddened by the death and destruction caused by the attack by Hamas targeting civilians in Israel this weekend”.

But the statement avoided making direct reference to the student letter or the response to it.
