Harvard Law Student Council Passes Anti-Israel Resolution After Changing Voting Rules

The pupil council of Harvard Law School handed an anti-Israel decision on Friday — after altering the voting guidelines to take action.

The decision calls on Harvard University to divest from the Jewish state and something related with it. As the Daily Wire reported final week, the Harvard Law School Government amended its bylaws to permit for a secret poll by its elected representatives for the primary time within the historical past of the establishment.

The Harvard Crimson reported that the decision handed 12-4, with three abstentions. It resulted in two members of the council resigning in protest, condemning the change in voting guidelines and noting that the council rushed the vote earlier than present members’ phrases have been about to run out.

Some activists gathered to have a good time the decision:

Harvard University, as soon as one of the crucial pro-Israel campuses in America, has grow to be a hotbed of anti-Israel activism and outright antisemitism lately, notably after the Hamas terror assaults in Israel on October 7.

As The Algemeiner notes:

In November, a mob of anti-Zionists — together with Ibrahim Bharmal, editor of the distinguished Harvard Law Review — adopted, surrounded, and intimidated a Jewish pupil. “Shame! Shame! Shame! Shame!” the crush of individuals screamed in a call-and-response chant into the ears of the scholar who — as seen in footage of the incident — was compelled to duck and sprint the group to free himself from the cluster of our bodies that encircled him.

Harvard President Claudine Gay resigned earlier this 12 months because of controversy over her weak response to antisemitism, in addition to a plagiarism scandal.
