University Group Honors Dead Hamas Terrorists as Martyrs
Tufts University may not belong in the pantheon of Ivy League schools, but it allegedly offers top notch education for those who attend there. It also promotes a warped view of the Israel-Hamas war, thanks to the group “Students for Justice in Palestine” chapter at Tufts.
On Wednesday the SJP group at Tufts University — whose motto is, ironically, “Peace and Light” — proudly revealed a display honoring the “martyrs” who died fighting Israel, including terrorists of Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
But the SJP didn’t just honor those who died in the current Hamas-Israel conflict. The roll of “honor” also included Ahmed Amer Salim Abu Junaid. According to the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, Junaid died in January in a “confrontation with the Zionist enemy army.”
And these are whom the Tufts students think we should honor as “martyrs.”
This group of nitwits indoctrinated in Marxism, Leninism, Progressivism, and any other vile -ism out there, also included a sign showing their animosity for police, complete with an image of a pig officer. The sign claimed that “Zionist tactics were used to kill George Floyd,” which makes no sense, except to the SJP.
No wonder many college-bound Jewish students are reconsidering Ivy League and other high-end schools. As Anton Frenk, a high school senior from New York City, said in an interview:
Seeing what’s happening on those campuses, I don’t feel that it would be worth it to have to fear for my life every single day just to get a quality education that I could find in an environment without that sort of cutthroat antisemitism.
Anton Frenk’s parents fled the former Soviet Union for freedom in the United States. Let that sink in.
Ashley Rindsberg, writer at The Spectator US, has found that antisemitism has long tendrils at Harvard. The school even had connections to eugenics and Nazism.
For years, as far back as the 1930’s, Jewish students at Harvard had an asterisk next to their names to show they were part of “a racial group for which the supply exceeds the House Masters’ demand.” Jewish students also knew better than to join Greek groups.
Apparently Harvard had their own version of the yellow star.
Then, in 1934, Harvard welcomed Ernst “Putzi” Hanfstaengl, who was a close friend of Adolf Hitler. Hanfstaengl, a German-American businessman, was a graduate of Harvard and boasted that his time as a cheerleader inspired him to create the “Sieg Heil!” salute.
Two years later, a delegation from Harvard attended the 550th anniversary of the very Nazified University of Heidelberg. The visitors from Harvard sat alongside such Nazi luminaries as Hanfstaengl, German science minister Bernhard Rust, Nazi racial theorist Alfred Rosenberg, Joseph Goebbels, and Heinrich Himmler.
Now we find that Harvard, along with Cornell, New York University, and Georgetown, have received over $8 billion from Arab nations over the past 30+ years.
Is it any wonder that these university students learn to despise Israel?
It’s not just higher education that is indoctrinating students into the ways of antisemitism. Tik Tok is also having a noxious effect on Generation Z.
Pooja Bhalla, a British high school student, bravely expressed her observations of her fellow teenagers in The Spectator UK. She wrote:
I’m a student in one of Britain’s largest high schools and know no one who supports Israel over Palestine. Some readers might find that shocking. Consider, though, how my generation gets its news. TikTok is today by far the preferred source of news for teenagers; YouTube is next, Instagram third.
Bhalla, like others of Gen Z, also has a Tik Tok account. But she says that every video she has seen about the Hamas-Israel conflict supports Palestine. Not one supported Israel.
Kids make comments like this:
“If you’re not pro-Palestine,” declares a girl on TikTok who is about my age, “we’re not friends. If you’re neutral right now, we’re not friends. If you’re too uneducated to have an opinion, we’re not friends… Your neutrality is your complacency.” To be socially acceptable to her, then, you need to support Palestine against Israel. To venture that the conflict is complicated is to be “uneducated.”
But the effect isn’t just in the UK. Here in the United States, almost half of TikTok subscribers are under 30. Not only do they give their allegiance to a terror group, Hamas, many are also considering becoming Muslim.
Like this young woman, who “literally started reading the Quran.” She was “literally” drawn into learning more about Islam, peppering her testimony with “literally” this, “literally” that.
Plus she kept calling the Gaza region “Palesteen.” No honey, “Palesteen” is how you pronounce the name of the town in Ohio which has endured the effects of a toxic train derailment. But I wouldn’t expect her to know that.
She’s “literally” an idiot. But search through social media and you can find a plethora of these nitwits, many of whom are girls. Literally.
Even more vile is this TikToker, who excused the beheadings, murders, rapes, capture, and torture of innocent Israelis as justified. Because they’re “oppressors” or something.
Tiktoker calls Hamas’ violent Oct 7 attack “resistance.” Suggests the innocent civilians in Israel who were raped, killed, beheaded, and kidnapped aren’t really innocent cuz they’re “oppressors.” pic.twitter.com/olYBPxedBJ

Last month I opined that the West’s loss of the Christian religion and culture have led to this mindset of antisemitism and love of the terrorist. I still believe that, even more now having seen the events of the past six weeks.
Both Christianity and Judaism adhere to the Ten Commandments, which have shaped the social attitudes and actions of Western culture.
While attending parochial school as a child, I learned those commandments by heart. I also found that while the first three focus on how one should honor God — Thou shalt have no other gods before Me; Thou shalt take the name of Thy God in vain; honor the Sabbath day by keeping it holy — the rest focus on how one should relate to their neighbor.
Take for example: Thou shalt not kill/steal/commit adultery/bear false witness/covet thy neighbors’ goods. And finally, Jesus’s words: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
But the culture among young adults has turned to worship of themselves. The neighbor is secondary. As for God — meh! Educate yourself!
As the great Russian dissident Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn said in a 1983 speech:
More than half a century ago, while I was still a child, I recall hearing a number of older people offer the following explanation for the great disasters that had befallen Russia: “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.”
It’s no wonder, then, that university students and their younger siblings have become convinced that the evil terrorists commit is good, while their innocent victims are evil.
