UPenn donor yanks financial support over school’s ‘unwillingness to call out evil’ after Hamas attack

A UPenn donor who wrote a scathing letter to his alma mater pulling funding following Hamas’ attack on Israel is urging Americans to reexamine their loyalties to the colleges they once attended.

University of Pennsylvania donor David Magerman told “America’s Newsroom” Monday that the school’s September “Palestine Writes” festival and subsequent response was the last straw in a “downward trend” for the Ivy League university.

“The speakers that populated the festival were people with affiliations to Hamas, antisemites, people who are known to be antagonistic to Israel. And there were no real efforts made by the administration to speak out against the conference,” he said.

I understand there’s some freedom of speech, but, you know, when things are going on that are affiliated with evil, I think you have to take a stand.”
