Woman Alleged To Be Durham College Student ‘Proud’ Of Hamas

A Durham College student has made it clear she supports Hamas – the militant group that raped, tortured, slaughtered and abducted hundreds of innocent Israelis in a terrorist attack on Oct. 7.

In a video reposted on X by StopAntisemitism, the self-described non-partisan, American-based organization fighting antisemitism claims the Hamas supporter is a student in the college’s advanced biotechnology program.

The Toronto Sun has not been able to verify the video, which appears to have been edited to some extent, and begins with the woman stating she “supports Hamas.”

Various comments follow without specific reference to Hamas.

“I’m very proud of my people. I’m very, very proud,” the woman in the video says emphatically. “I would love it if they would do it again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again.”

“No, they are not terrorists,” she says, shaking her head. “I support every decision.”

“History was made that day,” the woman adds.

The video then ends with footage of the woman – deemed a terrorist organization by Canada and many other countries – who killed an estimated 1,200 Israelis, including women and children, and still hold some 240 people hostage in Gaza.

“Shout out to Hamas,” the woman says as she raises a coffee cup and takes a sip.

The woman does not specifically mention the Oct. 7 date or detail what it is she would ‘love’ Hamas to do “again and again.”

And the Toronto Sun was unable to independently confirm the woman’s identity, the origin of the video, or the extent to which it may have been edited.

However, StopAntisemitism maintains there should be repercussions for making such hateful comments.

“These horrifying antisemites must be held accountable for their disturbing promotion of terrorism,” @StopAntisemites says in its post on X.

Brian Lilley, Sun political columnist says there has been an alarming upward spike in Anti-Semitism over the past few weeks and the “hate rallies” should not be tolerated.

Durham College posted a message on X that suggests they have identified the woman in the video and have been in touch with her.

“DC is aware of a disturbing video of an alleged student making antisemitic comments in support of terrorism,” the college said in its statement on Saturday. “Per our Student Conduct Policy, the Office of Campus Safety has contacted the individual & is taking all necessary actions, including working with the DPRS on this matter.”

“Durham College unequivocally condemns the inflammatory statements made in this video and does not tolerate antisemitism, Islamophobia, or any form of hate, discrimination or promotion of acts of violence,” the college said. “DC is a welcoming, inclusive and diverse community, and we remain committed to non-violence and the safety and well-being of the DC community.”

Durham Regional Police confirmed investigators have been in touch with the college regarding the video.

“We were made aware of this video by Durham College and are investigating,” a spokesman said.
