Over the weekend, radical Islamist terrorists launched a brutal attack on Israel—the largest assault Israel has seen in many decades.
Instinctively, conservatives and liberals alike have overwhelmingly denounced the terror Hamas has brought against the people of Israel. Americans throughout the country stand in solidarity with Israel, as roughly 900 and counting Israeli men, women, and children have been raped and murdered. Nearly 4,000 have been injured, at least eleven Americans have been killed, and these numbers continue to grow.
Despite this despicably evil offensive by the terrorist organization Hamas, which is also the governing authority of Palestine, leftist student groups, student governments, faculty, and administrators on college campuses throughout America are siding with Hamas in the name of “social justice.”
Chapters of the national Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) organization are largely leading these despicable pushes for domestic support of terror.
The Butler University chapter, for example, is hosting a “day of resistance” in collaboration with a socialist organization.
SJP at the University of Maryland, in partnership with faculty members, is organizing a petition drive calling on the institution’s administration to cut off its business relationships with corporations that supply the Israel Defense Forces or otherwise support Israel.
“Resistance is justified when you’re occupied,” students at the University of Houston – Clear Lake wrote in a post on their organization’s Instagram page.
Of course, there is never any valid justification for the atrocities that are taking place at the hands of these radical savages, who reportedly beheaded more than 40 babies in addition to their many other senseless acts of violence throughout the past several days.
Students and faculty at the University of California, Berkeley, published a list of 51 student organizations throughout the leftist state’s education system pledging “unwavering support” for Hamas terrorism, according to a file obtained by National Review’s Zach Kessel.
The University of Virginia’s students, in their statement, said that the gruesome unfoldings make them “hopeful” for the future of Palestine.
Students at Columbus University signed a statement blaming responsibility for the countless civilian and military deaths on the “Israeli extremist government” and the United States.
The New Guard is continuing to monitor these abhorrent statements and petitions coming out of colleges and universities and is accepting submissions through Young America’s Foundation’s Campus Bias Tip Line.
Make no mistake, Hamas is a gruesome terrorist group, targeting the Jewish people, Israel, and even the Palestinians it claims to support. Whether they realize it or not, many Americans in the world of academia are unfortunately siding with one of the most evil regimes in history.
“I am truly horrified for the students and student organizations who have chosen to defend Hamas,” Morgan Ames, a student at Emory College, told the New Guard. “It is completely antithetical to their supposed values of freedom and justice to defend the likes of rapists, those who behead babies, and kidnap the elderly. I don’t have a good explanation for their behavior, antisemitism is a disease with no cause and apparently no cure.”
