Report: Anti-Israel Event at Columbia University Featured Speakers Who Praised Hamas

Independent journalist Stu Smith recorded the meeting, which was held by video, and posted it on Twitter (or X).

(The reference by Barakat to his “friends” in Hamas in the clip below occurs at 1:16:24 in the full video above.)

Another speaker rejected a two-state solution, saying that what activists were “fighting for” was “every single inch of Palestine, from the river to the sea.” She added that the Palestinian struggle was also about “all oppressed people.”

In December, the Columbia School of Social Work saw Columbia students hold an event supporting Palestinian terrorism, which took place despite public statements by the university that the event would be canceled.
