Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) on Tuesday grilled the President of Harvard, Claudine Gay, at a hearing of the House Education Committee which dealt with the phenomenon of rising antisemitism on college campuses in the wake of the Hamas massacre of October 7.

During the hearing, Stefanik asked Gay whether calling for the genocide of Jews violates Harvard’s rules regarding bullying and harassment.

The President would not answer the question with a simple “yes” or “no” even as Stefanik continued to press her to do so, and would only say that calling for an “intifada” against Israel “is at odds with the values of Harvard”.
