Billionaire’s call NOT to hire Harvard students who issued controversial Israel statement gains traction

Those Harvard students who issued a statement blaming Israel for the savage Hamas attack may find it difficult to find a job when they graduate.

Billionaire hedge fund manager Bill Ackman has called for the Ivy League institution to “release a list of the members of each of the Harvard organizations that have issued the letter assigning sole responsibility for Hamas’ heinous acts to Israel, so as to ensure that none of us inadvertently hire any of their members.”

“If, in fact, their members support the letter they have released, the names of the signatories should be made public so their views are publicly known,” Ackman wrote on X. “One should not be able to hide behind a corporate shield when issuing statements supporting the actions of terrorists, who, we now learn, have beheaded babies, among other inconceivably despicable acts.”

As BizPac Review reported, following the attack which has thus far killed 1,200 Israelis and 22 Americans, over 30 Harvard student organizations issued a joint letter in support of Palestine.

“We, the undersigned student organizations, hold the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence,” the joint statement by “Harvard Palestine Solidarity Groups” read. “Today’s events did not occur in a vacuum. For the last two decades, millions of Palestinians in Gaza have been forced to live in an open-air prison.”

“The apartheid regime is the only one to blame,” the statement continued. “Israeli violence has structured every aspect of Palestinian existence for 75 years. From systematized land seizures to routine airstrikes, arbitrary detentions to military checkpoints, and enforced family separations to targeted killings, Palestinians have been forced to live in a state of death, both slow and sudden.”

“Today, the Palestinian ordeal enters into uncharted territory,” the groups said. “The coming days will require a firm stand against colonial retaliation. We call on the Harvard community to take action to stop the ongoing annihilation of Palestinians.”

After a flood of backlash, Harvard released a letter in which faculty said it “failed to condemn” Hamas in strong enough terms.

“The statement failed to condemn the justifications for violence that come from our own campus, nor to make it clear to the world that the statement endorsed by these organizations does not represent the values of the Harvard community,” the letter stated.

On Wednesday, the student group Harvard Palestine Solidarity Committee (PSC) picked up a “victims” card and doubled down on the student groups’ original joint message.

“In the past 72 hours, our statement has made international headlines,” the group wrote. “PSC has been flooded with racist hate speech and death threats. Hundreds of students have been persecuted both on campus and online, even people unaffiliated with PSC.”

“The targeting of Palestinian, Black, brown, Muslim and international students specifically should be extremely concerning to all parties. These threats reached such a height that we were forced to postpone our vigil, intended to mourn all innocent lives lost,” they continued. “We are appalled at the administration’s failure to protect its students’ safety.”

“To state what should be clear: PSC staunchly opposes all violence against all innocent life and laments all human suffering,” the group wrote. “The ongoing discourse centered on Harvard diverts focus from the relentless carnage in Gaza, a dire situation which our joint statement urgently warned about.”

“Palestinian death toll is only starting to mount,” the group said. “Loss of Palestinian lives, which has tragically become an annual occurrence, neither breaks the news nor prompts White House speeches.”

Harvard is, “a university that invests in Israeli apartheid,” they said, and “we are proud to stand steadfast against Israeli apartheid.”

On X, more than a dozen CEOs are endorsing Ackman’s call to blacklist the pro-Palestinian students.

“I would like to know so I know never to hire these people,” said Sweetgreen’s CEO, Jonathan Neman.

“Same,” replied David Duel, CEO of EasyHealth.

“Share the list, please,” urged Belong CEO Ale Resnik. “We’ll stay away.”

Others who voiced their support included those from companies Inspired, FabFitFun, DeFi at Bloq, DoveHill, Diligent, Brex, and Classic Learning Test,, the Daily Mail reports.

TPUSA CEO Charlie Kirk added some context to Ackman’s call.

“In February 2020, Harvard Business School got its largest ever gift, $200 million, from Leonard Blavatnik, a Ukrainian Jew,” he wrote. “Bill Ackman, of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, has given tens of millions to Harvard. There are thousands of others like them. Jews are some of the most generous funders of America’s universities, from Harvard to NYU to Stanford to Ohio State. Liberal Jews also donated massively to BLM.”

“Wake up American Jews!” Kirk exclaimed. “Stop subsidizing your own demise by supporting institutions that breed Anti-Semites and endorse genocidal killers.”
