OCT. 7 SPECIAL INVESTIGATION: Professors Teaching Hate

  • Since the October 7 massacre by Hamas of 1,200 Israelis & the kidnapping of 240 more, campus antisemitism has exploded, leaving Jewish students shocked, afraid & amassing resources to fight back.
  • Ivy League schools have been some of the worst offenders. After years of printing orientation materials warning incoming students to avoid offending their fellow students through long lists of microaggressions, universities are now suddenly standing behind principles of free speech.
  • This free speech “awakening” – witnessed in congressional testimony by the presidents of Harvard, Penn and MIT – has served as a smokescreen, facilitating the worst hate speech directed at Jewish students on their campuses. (Chart 1)

Professors on Campus: Support & Apologetics for Hamas

Since Oct. 7, Canary Mission has profiled 56 professors at a variety of universities in the United States and Canada. Of those professors,

  • 45 percent have either expressed support for Hamas, defended Hamas, whitewashed Hamas terrorism or blamed Israel for Hamas’ crimes of Oct.7
  • 38 percent have spread antisemitism or promoted hatred of or demonized Israel
  • 17 percent have been caught ripping down posters of Israeli hostages held by Hamas in Gaza

Others have targeted Jewish students in their classes. We even documented one professor who violently attacked Jewish students. (Chart 2)

Antisemitism on Campus Post Oct. 7

Nationwide, these statistics represent a trend. In the month following the Oct. 7 attack, Hillel International tracked a 700-percent increase in antisemitic incidents on college campuses compared to the same period last year.

In a recent ADL and Hillel International survey, 73 percent of Jewish college students said they experienced or witnessed antisemitic incidents on their campuses since the start of the 2023 academic year. Before Oct. 7, 67 percent of Jewish students said they felt “very” or “extremely” physically safe on campus. Since the attack, only 46 percent said the same.
