YAF’s Israeli Flag Display at Harvard Destroyed by Pro-Hamas Vandals

A Young America’s Foundation flag display featuring more than 1,200 Israeli and American flags in honor of the victims of the October 7 Hamas attacks was destroyed over the Sabbath.

Shabbos Kestenbaum, a Jewish student who worked with YAF to install the display, posted a video of the aftermath to X:

“If you want to understand the state of antisemitism at Harvard, it’s Saturday night, and we just finished the Sabbath. And we had almost all of our Israeli flags and our American flags either thrown all over the campus, thrown in the garbage, or ripped. I had to assemble some friends, and we’re out here, it’s about 11:30 at night, putting back our installation. All of our hostage posters were of course ripped and destroyed, so we’re gonna get new ones.”

“These flags represent the Americans and Israelies who’ve been held hostage since October 7th. The radicals who vandalized this display don’t care about them. They are wrong. So wrong,” remarked YAF President Governor Scott Walker in reaction to the destruction.

Even when simply walking around campus, he and other Jewish students say they’ve been stalked and followed. In a separate video, he showed two reflective vest-wearing, pro-Hamas “monitors” who had their eyes glued on his every move.

Thankfully, Shabbos and others throughout the country are not afraid to stand up against this antisemitic insanity, calling it out for what it is.
