‘God help this country’: Majority of young people say Hamas was ‘justified’ in its savagery

If widespread pro-Hamas protests on American college campuses did not alert you to just how far gone our institutions of higher learning are, perhaps a new Harvard-Narris poll might do the trick.

According to the survey, the majority of young people think the savage butchery of Israeli Jews by the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas was JUSTIFIED.

Lila Rose, founder and president of Live Action, a global human rights movement dedicated to ending abortion and building a culture of life, shared the results of the poll on X.

“The majority of American 18-24 year-olds think that Hamas’ slaughter of the 1200 Israeli civilians ‘can be justified.’ God help this country,” Rose tweeted.

The atrocities committed in Israel defy the mind. A Palestinian terrorist who was captured put it into proper perspective when he said, “We became animals — [did] things that humans do not do.”

Elderly women and small children were brutally raped. Infants were beheaded. Bodies burned beyond recognition, sometimes while family members were forced to watch before their turn came.

It’s hard to image treatment like this of any other group of people essentially being condoned, yet for Jews it appears to be acceptable.

Then again, with radical Marxist and pro-jihadi professors being the norm on college campuses, dismissing these atrocities as little more than propaganda, today’s poorly-informed youth don’t stand a chance. Add in the fact that there are members of Congress, including the first two Muslim women to serve, U.S. Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who openly back Hamas while accusing Israel of committing war crimes by defending itself — a stance heavily promoted by the media — and the poll results become a little more understandable.

After all, this is the “ends justify the means” crowd who believe that political violence is sometimes necessary in advancing a “just cause.”

Popular conservative influencer David Burge noted the alarming number of participants who “thought the attacks were genocidal AND justified.”

Here’s a quick sampling of other responses to the story, as seen on X:
