Kamala Harris Applauds Student Accusing Israel of ‘Ethnic Genocide,’ for ‘Speaking Your Truth’


Vice President Kamala Harris applauded a student who accused Israel of “ethnic genocide” and who expressed “hurt” at the U.S.’ decision to fund the Iron Dome missile defense system. Harris responded she was “glad” the student expressed her concerns. The George Mason University student, who explicitly said she was “not an American” and despite her American accent, identified herself as part-Yemeni, part-Iranian, said that nevertheless America affects her life “every day” over its policy of funding Saudi Arabia and Israel. “You brought up how the power of the people and demonstrations and organizing is very valuable in America, but I see that over the summer there have been protests and demonstrations in astronomical numbers standing with Palestine, but then just a few days ago there were funds allocated to continue backing Israel which hurts my heart because it’s ethnic genocide and displacement of people, the same that happened in America, and I’m sure you’re aware of this,” the student said at the Q&A session following an event commemorating National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday. The student pointed to the lack of housing and universal healthcare in the U.S. and questioned why money was going to Israel and Saudi Arabia instead of addressing those domestic issues. “The people have spoken very often of what they do need and I feel like there’s a lack of listening and I just feel like I need to bring this up because it affects my life and people I really care about’s (sic.) life,” she said. Instead, he continued, the money goes “to inflaming Israel and backing Saudi Arabia and what-not.”
