Conflict Not About Contested Territory
The barrage of Hamas rockets indiscriminately fired into Israel last May was not about a “conflict over contested territory” as stated in Jarrad Saffren’s article “How Bad is Local Campus Antisemitism?” (Nov. 4).
It is part of Hamas’ mission to destroy Israel in accordance with the Hamas Covenant of 1988, which states, “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”
Jewish students on college campuses should use this when arguing for Israel’s right to defend itself.
