Well-Intentioned Harvard Students Get It Terribly Wrong October 9, 2023October 9, 2023 Thirty-one Harvard organizations blame Israel for Hamas attack: ‘Entirely responsible’ Because they are clearly concerned about what’s going on — and smart enough to get into Harvard — here’s my ask: that every one of them read Israel: A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth. It is written by a woman who — like them* — is deeply sympathetic to the plight of the Palestinians. Give the book to every incredibly-well-meaning-but-misled college student you know! They have been misled.** And they should be angry at those, backed by Iran, who have misled them.*** That said, I’m more than fine with their being angry with Netanyahu and many of his awful right-wing cabinet members . . . whom Tom Friedman calls “crazy and insane” in the last minute of this clip. The world should be furious with them, too. _______________________ *And every other decent human being. **Just as Trump enthusiasts (at least those who favor democracy and the rule of law) have been misled. ***In the case of Trump: Fox News and Republicans in Congress who are afraid to say what they really think of him.
