Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., criticized Harvard for hosting Dr. Dalal Saeb Iriqat, a Palestinian professor who blamed Israel for the Oct. 7 Hamas attacks.

Fetterman expressed dismay at the university’s decision to provide a platform for someone who justifies the killing of Israeli citizens by Hamas.

Harvard defended the event, stating that it aims to facilitate debate and discussion, even if some views are considered repugnant.

“I am truly appalled that the Kennedy School would platform an individual who celebrates and justifies Hamas’ October 7th killing of Israeli citizens—babies, children, the elderly, and the systemic rape, mutilation, and torture of young girls and women,” Fetterman said.

“This hate has absolutely no place in any sanctioned dialogue. Decency would demand it relegated to the sewer of social media fringe.”

“As an alumni and a member of the United States Senate, 25 years later, it’s hard to recognize my former university,” he said.

“The purpose of the series is to provide a venue for debate and discussion, recognizing that different views will be offered and challenged—including views that many at the Kennedy School and beyond may disagree with vehemently and even find repugnant,” Harvard stated.

The series will feature speakers with diverse perspectives, including former senior adviser Jared Kushner and former Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.
