Students and campus staffers have been caught — on multiple college campuses in the United States — tearing down posters of missing or kidnapped Israeli citizens in the wake of the devastating Hamas terrorist attacks that took place just over a week ago.
Several students at New York University were caught on camera ripping the posters down.
NYU’s Students Supporting Israel group shared a close-up photo of the posters, which the students had stuffed into a nearby trash can.
“Today, we witnessed 2 NYU students violently tearing down posters of kidnapped babies, mothers, and grandmothers hanging outside of NYU Buildings. This was done in a laughing manner, exhibiting complete disregard for Jewish lives and Jewish safety. HERE ARE THE PICTURES,” the caption read.
According to StopAntisemitism, the two students were later identified as Yazmeen Deyhimi — a pre-law major who had previously interned at the Anti-Defamation League — and Hafiza Khalique.
Deyhimi admitted to her part in tearing down the posters — and called for the safe return of the Israeli hostages — in a since-deleted Instagram post, according to a report from the New York Post.
