A lecturer at Cornell University was filmed calling the Hamas invasion "exhilarating."

"It was exhilarating, it was energizing. And if it wasn't exhilarating, this challenge to the monopoly of violence, this shifting of the balance of power, then they would not be human. I was exhilarated!"

The speech was given under a banner for "The Sophie Fund" and next to signs saying "Stand with Palestine."
