    Yale's campus newspaper, the Yale Daily News, the oldest college daily in the United States, removed claims from a column in its paper saying Hamas raped women and beheaded men in its murderous attack on Israel October 7, saying they were "unsubstantiated claims."

    Following Hamas' attack on Israel, Yalies4Palestine posted a statement on its official Instagram page holding "the Israeli Zionist regime responsible for the unfolding violence," The New York Post reported.

    The October 12 column, written by Yale sophomore Sahar Tartak, who also serves as the editor of the Yale Free Press, was titled, "Is Yalies4Palestine a hate group?"

    "You weren't one of the 3,500 present, and you fortunately weren't one of the 260 murdered," Tartak wrote of the music festival in Israel that was one of the targets of Hamas. "You fortunately weren't abducted by Hamas fighters (if you're a woman, child or elderly person), or shot or beheaded or killed in some other creative way on the spot (if you're a man). You certainly weren't Shani Louk, the young woman with a bullet in her head depicted stripped to her underwear with her legs 'bent at unnatural angles' in the back of a pickup truck driven by the men."

    "This sort of barbarism went on throughout Israel this weekend, committed by Hamas terrorists from Gaza who seemed intent on killing as many Jews as possible," she continued. "Yes, they kidnapped children. Yes, they cheered the whole time. It's all on video."


    "You can imagine my horror to find that Yalies4Palestine decided that the murderers are absolved of their responsibility in an Instagram post that holds 'the Israeli Zionist regime responsible for the unfolding violence,' thereby justifying the use of unlawful violence against civilians (again: terror)," she noted. "An original Y4P post called on 'the Yale community to celebrate the resistance's success.'"

    "Anyone with eyes can see that streets lined with dead civilian bodies are a bad thing," she commented. "Mothers screaming for their children? Bad thing. Do I have to go on? Watch the videos before you celebrate 'the resistance,' I urge you. If you're any sort of human being at all, they'll make you sick. Imagine it's you or your mother or your little brother. Would you call that resistance? No. Who would you blame? I'd blame the perpetrator - not the victim. Campus hate groups, which I define by their support for terror, are free to disagree. But you don't want to be a part of that."

    "There is no place for student organizations who publicly celebrate the murder and kidnapping of innocent civilians. Y4P glorifies terrorism, cloaking it in the language of justice and human rights to feign innocence. For shame," she wrote.

    "You were not at the music festival. You didn't open your door to a man with a gun zip-tying your hands behind your back and shoving you into his car. Your corpse isn't being desecrated and spat on. Neither is your grandmother's. Your little siblings are safe at home," she concluded. "You have a choice. You can mourn with us. Or you can celebrate."

    Update: After substantial backlash, the Yale Daily News retracted the editor's notes which claimed that the statement "Hamas raped women" was "unsubstantiated."


    "These corrections erroneously created the impression that, as of late October, there still was not enough publicly available evidence for those horrific acts," the the paper's note said. "The News therefore retracts those editor's notes in their entirety and without qualification. The notes have been removed from the columns, and the original text has been restored."

    "It was never the News' intention to minimize the brutality of Hamas' attack against Israel. We are sorry for any unintended consequences to our readership and will ensure that such erroneous and damaging material does not make it into our content, either as opinion or as news," the note continued.

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"

A majority of Americans still believe in OUR 1st Amendment guaranteed Freedom of Speech; however, at what bold point does the constitutional right to Free Speech becomes unabashed anti-Semitic Hate Speech, and while it should possibly be tolerated on our college campuses, and on the streets of mostly Sanctuary Cities, these events should be rightfully observed and scrupulously monitored ... or, not? What is your true opinion of when too much of enough is just too much, or not?
  The answer to Free Speech I don't agree with is more, and incredibly robust Free Speech.
  There is a point when Free Speech becomes counter productive to sustaining a peaceful society.
  Free Speech should only be tolerated if it represents the status quo of the highly educated orthodoxy.
  Early in life, I learned to speak only when I am spoken to.
