(SNews) – Far-left college students are expressing outrage after their support for the Hamas terrorist attacks against Israel ending up costing them future job opportunities.
Harvard University students who signed an egregious, terrorism-justifying statement are now arguing that they have fallen victim to “bullying.”
The same students are even soliciting financial donations, claiming they need to finance mental health support due to the backlash against their anti-Semitic protests.
Meanwhile, law students at New York University, who pushed the same anti-Israel protests, are claiming that denying someone a job because of their support for terrorism is an act of “violence.”

The complaints come after a top U.S. law firm rescinded job offers for three Ivy League students after they allegedly signed letters about the Israel-Hamas war.
An internal email at the law firm Davis Polk revealed that the company withdrew the offers to the three law students at Harvard and Columbia Universities over their apparent signatures on public statements.
“These statements are simply contrary to our firm’s values and we thus concluded that rescinding these offers was appropriate in upholding our responsibility to provide a safe and inclusive work environment for all Davis Polk employees,” said the email, signed by Neil Barr, NBC reported.
“At this time, we remain in dialogue with two of these students to ensure that any further color being offered to us by these students is considered,” the email added.

It comes as Ivy League universities across the country are embroiled in rows in the wake of Hamas’s terror attack against Israel on October 7.
Unrest continues to rumble on at Harvard University after a group of 33 student organizations, led by the Harvard Undergraduate Palestine Solidarity Committee, released a now-deleted statement on social media arguing that Israel’s “apartheid regime” had created the impetus for the war.
“Today’s events did not occur in a vacuum,” the letter read.
“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 letter continued.
It describes Israel’s subsequent campaign in Gaza as “colonial retaliation.”
The letter prompted a furious backlash, with Harvard professors and alumni calling on the university’s leadership to condemn the letter as well as Hamas.
