Harvard Student Group Invited Anti-Israel Professor Who Once Appeared With Hamas Senior Leader

The New York Post reported that a Harvard student group invited a Rutgers anti-Israel professor to speak. The anti-Israel professor once appeared with a Hamas leader.

Noura Erakat, an associate professor of Africana Studies at Rutgers University, once appeared on an online workshop hosted by the Masarat Center with senior Hamas leader Ghazi Hamad.

Erakat co-edits pro-Palestine magazine Jadaliyya.

Ereakat is also the niece of Saeb Erekat, “a Palestinian diplomat and senior member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, and for decades the authority’s chief negotiator with Israel.”

Just wow:

Noura Erakat, an associate professor of Africana studies at Rutgers University in New Jersey, was scheduled to speak on “We Charge Genocide; The Potential and Limits of International Law,” at the school’s Center for Middle Eastern Studies — after months of making anti-Israeli speeches.

The lecture by the controversial academic, who is also a human rights attorney, came amid mounting accusations that Harvard has failed to tackle antisemitism on its campus in the wake of the Hamas massacre of hundreds of innocent Israelis on October 7.

Harvard’s Center for Middle Eastern Studies invited Erakat to speak at the event “We Charge Genocide: The Potential and Limits of International Law.”

It was scheduled at Harvard from 6 PM to 8 PM. Only those with a Harvard ID could attend.

Erakat spread more anti-Israel rhetoric after Hamas invaded Israel, slaughtered thousands, and kidnapped hundreds:

But Erakat’s speech appears likely to inflame tensions. From the beginning of the Hamas atrocities committed against Israelis, Erakat has blamed Israel alone for the violence.

“Any condemnation of violence is vapid if it does not begin & end with a condemnation of Israeli apartheid, settler colonialism, and occupation,” Erakat posted on X to her more than 176,000 followers on Oct. 7.

A few days later, on Oct. 16, she tweeted to President Biden “…@POTUS repeated the lie about beheaded [Israeli] babies [by Hamas], directed US diplomatic corps to avoid calls for ceasefire [between Israel and Hamas], & backs Israel’s genocidal warfare [in Gaza]…”

I’m trying to find a video of her workshop with Hamad. Here is her speech at the anti-Israel rally in Philadelphia.
