Billionaire Robert Kraft Pulls Funding from Columbia University over ‘Virulent Hate’ from Pro-Hamas Protesters on Campus – EVOL

Multi-billionaire Robert Kraft has announced that he is pulling his donations from his alma mater Columbia University over the ongoing pro-Hamas protests on campus.

Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, said Monday said he will no longer donate to Columbia due to the “virulent hate” on campus against Jewish people.

The move comes amid the ongoing widespread anti-Israel protests at the prestigious college.

In a Monday statement, Kraft said:

“The school I love so much—the one that welcomed me and provided me with so much opportunity—is no longer an institution I recognize.

“I am no longer confident that Columbia can protect its students and staff and I am not comfortable supporting the university until corrective action is taken,” Kraft added.

Kraft continued by noting he is “deeply saddened at the virulent hate that continues to grow on campus and throughout our country.”

The anti-Israel protests at Columbia started last Wednesday morning.

It began as an encampment by hundreds of students on the university’s main lawn.

However, the protests have turned violent and featured anti-Semitic slogans.

More than 100 Columbia students have since been arrested and suspended from the university.
