Harvard to Host Palestinian Professor Who Blamed Israel For Hamas Terrorist Attack

The Harvard Kennedy School is expected to host a Palestinian professor who said the Hamas’ attack was a “normal struggle for freedom,” and said she would never forgive Israel’s government for “making us take their children and elderly as hostages.”

Dalal Saeb Iriqat, a professor of diplomacy and conflict resolution at the Arab American University in Ramallah is scheduled to speak at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center as part of its Middle East Dialogues series this month.

“The world tolerated watching >35000 Palestinian youth seek refuge via territorial waters, putting their lives at risk, choosing to drawn in the sea over their miserable lives in a big prison called #Gaza after 17 yrs Israeli siege [sic],” she posted to X, formerly Twitter. “Today is just a normal human struggle 4 #Freedom.”

“Statements of support to @netanyahu far right Israeli Gov can only fuel more state organized terror and more impunity to Israel’s continued #crimes & collective punishment against the Palestinian civilians,” she continued.

“We will never forgive the Israeli right wing extreme government for making us take their children and elderly as hostages,” Irigat said. “The Israeli public need to realize that their own government had caused all this bloodshed and they remain the ones responsible for this escalatin and losses of civilians lives [sic].”

From The Daily Wire:

Harvard University has been under mounting criticism for its response to Hamas’ massacre, including a lawsuit being filed by Jewish students that accuse the school of enabling antisemitism and selectively enforcing its policies to avoid protecting Jewish students from harassment. The university parted ways with its former president, Claudine Gay, as she dealt with backlash over her public statements about combatting antisemitism on campus.
