(TheRedAlertNews.com) – The far-left capture of America’s top universities is revealing its true ever uglier face as over one hundred Harvard scholars have just defended the Islamist terrorist calls for Israel’s obliteration by declaring that the “From the River to the Sea” chant is “complicated.”
Radical-left and Muslim supporters have gone on the offensive in the US and worldwide after, on October 7, the Palestinian Arab terrorist group Hamas slaughtered over 1,400 Israelis, causing Israel to defend itself.
More than 100 faculty members at Harvard University have now signed a letter arguing the phrase “from the river to the sea” – a call of Israel’s destruction – could be interpreted in different ways, The Daily Caller reports.
The far-left professors’ reaction comes after Harvard President Claudine Gay made several statements about anti-Semitism on campus after receiving criticism from donors and graduates.
She denounced the phrase “from the river to the sea,” which is understood to have genocidal implications.
However, the Harvard faculty members claimed her condemnation was racist and a response to donor pressure.
“As Harvard faculty, we have been astonished by the pressure from donors, alumni, and even some on this campus to silence faculty, students, and staff critical of the actions of the State of Israel. It is important to acknowledge the patronizing tone and format of much of the criticism you have received as well as the outright racism contained in some of it,” the leftists state.
“The phrase ‘from the river to the sea, Palestine must be free’ has a long and complicated history. Its interpretation deserves, and is receiving, sustained and ongoing inquiry and debate,” their letter asserts.
It also criticizes the decision to denounce the phrase as “imprudent” and a misjudgment in “moral leadership.”
Other scholars slammed the Harvard leftists for exposing their true anti-Semitic nature.
“The signatories are the usual suspects from the anti-Israel woke hard left. Their one-sided screed is part of the problem, not part of any reasonable resolution. I doubt that many of them would sign a letter in support of the free speech of such ‘complex ‘ issues as racism, sexism, homophobia or Islamophobia. Their double standard against Israel is obvious,” commented former Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz.
“It might be framed in the language of liberation, but it calls for the destruction of Israel,” reacted Professor Norman Goda from the University of Florida.
