Tufts University ‘Students for Justice in Palestine’ Slammed for Praising ‘Creativity’ of Hamas for Using Paragliders in Attack on Israel
“It has not been without cost, as hundreds of Palestinians have been martyred in the past days, fighting to liberate themselves and their land.”
The ‘Students for Justice in Palestine’ chapter at Tufts University in Boston is being criticized for praising the ‘creativity’ of Hamas for using paragliders to invade Israel in their attacks.
This is nothing new at Tufts. We have covered the anti-Semitic behavior of the Tufts SJP chapter many times over the years.
The Daily Mail reported:
Tufts University students are ripped apart for praising the ‘creativity’ of Hamas terrorists using paragliders to ‘launch historic attack on colonizers’
A student group at Tufts University is facing backlash after a statement in which they praised the ‘creativity’ of Hamas terrorists who used paragliders to launch an attack in Israel that left over 1,000 dead, including 22 Americans.
Tufts’ Students for Justice in Palestine group called the terrorists ‘liberation fighters paragliding into occupied territory,’ adding that they had ‘especially shown the creativity necessary to take back stolen land.’
The message added: ‘It has not been without cost, as hundreds of Palestinians have been martyred in the past days, fighting to liberate themselves and their land.’…
The group’s statement was first shared on Tuesday by the Anti-Defamation League New England chapter, who called it ‘obscene.’
The University denounced the organization’s message on Wednesday. No individual member of the group put their name to the inflammatory statement and DailyMail.com has been unable to identify individual members.
‘We condemn the terrorism and atrocities that Hamas has carried out against Israel,’ said spokesman Patrick Collins. ‘We strongly disagree with and denounce SJP’s statement and want to make clear that no student group speaks for the university.’
Much like Harvard, Tufts is distancing itself from this message.
The Tufts Daily reported:
University denounces SJP praise of Hamas-led attacks
In a message to its e-list on Monday, Tufts Students for Justice in Palestine praised the “creativity” of the Hamas-led surprise attacks on Israeli civilians launched on Oct. 7. Tufts denounced the student group’s message and University President Sunil Kumar called the attacks acts of “pure barbarism.”
SJP expressed solidarity with Palestinians following Hamas’ attack on Israel, during which at least 1,200 were killed. In response to the attack, Israel launched several airstrikes on the Gaza Strip, killing at least 1,100.
The text of SJP’s email, which invited students to attend a Cambridge rally in solidarity with Palestinians, opened with three parachute emojis; on Saturday, fighters involved in the assault used paragliders to cross the Gazan border before attacking civilians.
“Since Friday, Palestinians have been launching a historic attack on the colonizers,” SJP wrote in the email obtained by the Daily. “Footage of liberation fighters from Gaza paragliding into occupied territory has especially shown the creativity necessary to take back stolen land. It has not been without cost, as hundreds of Palestinians have been martyred in the past days, fighting to liberate themselves and their land.”
People are disgusted and for good reasons.
Campus radicals are tripping over themselves to outdo each other praising the gang-rapist, mass-murdering, baby-beheading terrorists of Hamas.
Mazel tov to Tufts, which is currently in the lead!

Tufts SJP applauding the “creativity” of Hamas in perpetrating atrocities, including murdering babies, is obscene. pic.twitter.com/3AhhutYOgK

My daughter’s college classmates are celebrating the “creativity” of the terrorist paragliders who butchered/raped/kidnapped hundreds of college-age kids at a music festival. Shame on you .@TuftsUniversity! https://t.co/0c9Gx1xnzl

”It’s just moral bankruptcy,” he said. “This student group is endorsing terrorism.”

SJP at my alma mater @TuftsUniversity enters the sweepstakes of obscene celebration of Antisemitic mass murder, praising Hamas’ “creativity” in executing its “historic” action of mass rape and murder and infanticide. https://t.co/hoqorMrVfH

As a human being & @FletcherSchool @TuftsUniversity alum I am disgusted by this & expect firm action by the university administration. This is one of the worst international terrorist incidents on record & Tufts SJP applauds Hamas creativity. Unbelievable https://t.co/msnRqbai9m

They should never get jobs in America and any of them on visas should be expelled from the country without delay! https://t.co/55EtnVTiEr

I made this comment on Twitter which I think applies here.
Make no mistake, the same people rallying for Hamas on college campuses right now would be the first ones to decry hate and demand a safe space if a conservative was speaking on campus.
