A "one state solution" would mean the end of Israel.

This conference epitomizes academic hubris in its most grotesque manifestation. To merely wish an end the the Sovereign Jewish State of Israel in the guise of intellectual pretense and the illusion of well argued moral applications is a serious crime. The late Christofer Hitchens--great critic of Israel and supporter of the Jewish State's right to exist nonetheless--captures the character of a participant of such a venture: "It is a moral idiot who thinks that anti-Semitism is a threat only to Jews. The history of civilization demonstrates something rather different: Judaeophobia is an unfailing prognosis of barbarism and collapse, and the states and movements that promulgate it are doomed to suicide as well as homicide, as was demonstrated by Catholic Spain as well as Nazi Germany."

The Israeli people have the right to defend themselves against annihilation. Antisemitism should NOT be supported by Harvard or any other prestigious academic establishments.

You have thrown out all our values as Americans who believe in freedom and self determination. The United Nations authorized Israel's right to exist as a nation. If there had been such a country during the Hit;ler era, Millions of people would still be alive. I may never again hire a Harvard educated lawyer since she or he has gotten such a terrible immoral education

"One-State Conference" regarding Israel, hosted by Harvard University is simply Wrong.

How sad that one of America's finest universities is so easily swayed by monetary donations. Israel is America's only real ally and the only true democracy in the Middle East. Do you really want to live under Sharia law someday? Keep supporting the platform to drive Israel and all Jews into the sea. Academics will be the next ones to go!

In this world in which we live there is no "right" to determine when, where, and who is to live and who and what is to die. What if there was a group who decided that the country of Germany or Saudi Arabia needed to be annihilated ? Perhaps we could do away with the Catholics and their territory in Rome??? I am Jewish but I do know that in the teachings of Jesus there is nothing written about killing and destroying other people and their countries and their beliefs!

I am hurt by anti-Israel messages when I know their country works hard to maintain a democracy and keep peace with all people. They are not as people try to protray them as filled with hate and against the Palestinians - They have been living in peace for many years!!! Israel does not hate the people living in their borders and there has been no issue except for their safety from any enemies nearby... Please send people from hardvard to israel to find out for themselves rather than promote these things which arent true.
