“Sadly, there are few places on earth with more vicious antisemitism and hatred of Israel than American ‘elite’ universities,” Texas Sen. Ted Cruz told Fox News Digital in a statement following a letter he sent to Harvard, his alma mater, calling on the school to denounce the protests. 

“It’s disgusting, and it’s dangerous. I’m particularly ashamed that student groups from my alma mater, Harvard, blamed Israel for the genocidal war that Hamas terrorists are brutally waging.” 

The Department of Education did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.
