Letter to the Editor

On April 24, the Daily published a student’s op-ed regarding the March 28 panel titled “The Israel-Hamas War and Jewish Life on Campus” sponsored by the Tufts Hebrew Program. While the subtitle asserts that “Tufts must ensure that academic dialogues remain productive and accountable,” the author ironically refuses to adhere to that aspiration and instead employs a steady stream of unfounded assertions, logical fallacies and double standards. The effect is a classic gaslighting of those who believe Israel has a right to exist and defend itself and undermines those who believe Jews and Israelis deserve an opportunity to present their views on the conflict openly. We were in the audience that night and would like to correct the record regarding the event and contest a misrepresentative op-ed.
