“students gathering not in the name of peace, but to celebrate the heinous acts of violence and terror perpetrated by Hamas against Israelis”
Tahmineh Dehbozorgi is a student at George Washington University Law School. She is so right about this.

I’m a college student who escaped Iran. Liberal American colleges promote extremism and censor the truth
American universities are championing terror in the name of free speech. As a dissident from the Islamic Republic of Iran and a student at The George Washington University, I recognize this as the logical outcome of the trend in universities to silence anyone who would speak out against authoritarian regimes.
In recent days, our university campuses have witnessed a disturbing spectacle: students gathering not in the name of peace, but to celebrate the heinous acts of violence and terror perpetrated by Hamas against Israelis.
Numerous law students from top schools signed letters explicitly saying that Israelis deserved to be killed. Although they got what they deserved when prestigious law firms rescinded offers from law students at NYU, Harvard, and Columbia, certain segments of the academic community still endorsed these demonstrations, and administrators failed to condemn these acts unequivocally, appealing to these students’ right to express their opinions.
Students like myself will tell you, however, that on these campuses, such opinions aren’t transgressive ideologies or niche political ideas that the rest of society must tolerate: These opinions, which are cultivated and championed by the universities themselves, are a blatant endorsement of violence and an affront to the very values our institutions of higher learning are supposed to uphold.
Murdering civilians is wrong no matter what. Yet, “pro-Palestine” student groups on campuses are framing the conflict as the battle of the “oppressed” against the “oppressor.” Many of my classmates who label themselves as “pro-Palestine” have told me that the violence against the Israeli people is justified because “Israel has oppressed Muslims for many years.” Not only do they have no sympathy for civilians who are killed in this conflict, they also do not want to talk about the real perpetrator of the recent attacks.
