History Overlooked at Harvard

Welcome to Harvard 300x225 History Overlooked at Harvard

Harvard University once again showed the world that hate and antisemitism are alive and well even at one of the most prestigious American universities. The anti-Israel activists who attended Harvard University’s Hate-fest pitched as the “One State Conference” heard two days of propaganda that suggested the Jewish people do not exist.

Big Journalism posted an exclusive video of Professor Susan M. Akram of Boston University’s School of Law who told attendees that there is no legal basis for Jewish self-determination. Really? This is nothing but an egregious lie and the same antisemitic rhetoric used by Hitler when he exterminated 6 million Jews.

Akram’s lies were obvious when she stated:

 Israel’s claim of a state, on the basis of exclusive and discriminatory rights to Jews [sic], has never been juridically recognized. In other words, the concept of the Jewish people as a national entity with extraterritorial claims has never been recognized under international law.

Wow, I guess Akram either never heard of the Balfour Declaration of 1917, the Treaty of Sevres (1920) or the UN General Assembly Resolution 181 (Partition Plan) of 1947 – all of which were internationally debated and accepted legal statements.  She simply attempted to con attendees with her false narrative that “the Jewish people do not exist.”

There’s no excuse for false narratives and hate and those who try to construe the “One State Conference” as anything else as other than delegitimization and anti-Israel, anti-Jew propaganda run amuck. I guess Harvard forgot that there’s already a single state: it’s called Israel, the Jewish State.
