Numerous CEOs Back Call to Not Hire Harvard Students Blaming Israel for Hamas Attacks

Over a dozen CEOs are backing an effort by Bill Ackman to refuse the hiring of Harvard students who are blaming Israel for being attacked by Hamas.

The attacks killed at least 1,200 people, including 22 Americans, with some Americans and others being held hostage by the terrorist group.

"Jonathan Newman, CEO of salad chain Sweetgreen, was among a group of business honchos who seconded Ackman in urging that the signatories of the letter circulated by a coalition of 34 Harvard student groups that 'hold the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence' be blocked," the New York Post reported.

“I would like to know so I know never to hire these people,” Newman wrote in response to Ackman’s post on X on Tuesday.

"I have been asked by a number of CEOs if @harvard would release a list of the members of each of the Harvard organizations that have issued the letter assigning sole responsibility for Hamas’ heinous acts to Israel, so as to ensure that none of us inadvertently hire any of their members," Ackman wrote.

"If, in fact, their members support the letter they have released, the names of the signatories should be made public so their views are publicly known," he continued.

President Joe Biden and most lawmakers in both parties have been supportive of Israel's response to Hamas following the attacks.

Some Squad House members were even condemned by the White House press secretary over their controversial remarks supporting Hamas.

The ongoing push by some influencers despite the clear terrorist attack has captured the attention of many business leaders.

At least some CEOs are making it clear that they are opposed to hiring anyone who is supportive of the violence against innocent people in the Middle East.
