‘Despicable’: Students condemn Harvard student groups’ letter blaming Israelis for own massacre

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Pro-Israel college students near Boston denounced a letter signed by more than two dozen Harvard University student organizations blaming the Middle East nation for Hamas’ deadly surprise attack over the weekend.

“That letter was deeply disturbing,” Annie, a Harvard student, told Fox News Digital at a rally outside Cambridge City Hall on Monday. “I’m appalled that so many student organizations have signed on to this.”

Harvard University President Claudine Gay responded to the student groups’ letter Tuesday.

“While our students have the right to speak for themselves, no student group — not even 30 student groups — speaks for Harvard University or its leadership,” Gay said in a statement.

“We will all be well served in such a difficult moment by rhetoric that aims to illuminate and not inflame,” she added. “I appeal to all of us in this community of learning to keep this in mind as our conversations continue.”
