The House Ways and Means Committee hearing Thursday focused on the roles of faculty and weak university leadership in the spread of large-scale, pro-Palestinian student protests on college campuses across America and around the world.

Members of the hearing condemned university administrations’ inability to discipline its students. Others believe that the root cause of antisemitism goes far beyond any political issue.

There has been a sharp rise in reported anti-Semitic incidents since Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on Israel. Despite quieting down, pro-Palestinian student protests continue.
