Yale student says newspaper’s censorship of Hamas rape from her column part of wider campus problem

Yale student Ariane De Gennaro’s column for the college’s independent newspaper, which called out those refusing to condemn Hamas terrorism, was one of two edited last month without her knowledge and updated to remove “unsubstantiated claims of rape” by Hamas. 

She told Fox News Digital in an interview that the situation was contributing to a larger problem on college campuses. 

Her column, originally published on Oct. 13 in the Yale Daily News (YDN), was headlined, “Stop justifying terrorism,” and was edited to remove a short line about Hamas raping Israeli civilians during their Oct. 7 attack. The correction has since been retracted.

“Hamas, a terrorist organization, launched a depraved attack, killed hundreds of people (including attendees of a music festival), and committed kidnapping, murder and rape,” De Gennaro’s original column read.
