Harvard Law Review Editor Accused In Jewish Student Attack

In a shameful display of arrogance and ignorance, the student editor of the prestigious Harvard Law Review is accused of verbally and physically accosting a Jewish student.

This came on Oct. 18, just days after Hamas terrorists carried out a horrific massacre of innocents in southern Israel. Leftist radicals on the Ivy League campus were conducting a pro-Palestinian protest when the Jewish student tried to make his way through the scene.

One of the alleged offenders who surrounded and terrorized the student reportedly is Ibrahim Bharmal, the Harvard Law Review editor.

The hostile collegians were holding a “die-in” to protest Israel’s retaliation against the Oct. 7 surprise attack. A group of demonstrators were caught on camera surrounding their Jewish victim.

The student plainly told his attackers “don’t grab me” and “don’t touch my neck.” He was still surrounded even as the Harvard students told him to “exit” while trapping him in their venomous circle.

Bharmal is seen in the video among the students with keffiyehs and disparaging signs while shouting “Shame!”

Canary Mission reported that Bharmal is not only the HLR editor, but he serves as co-president of the Harvard South Asian Law Students Association (SALSA).

Not surprisingly, the group was one of the over 30 student organizations to sign the infamous letter backing Hamas terrorists in their Israeli slaughter. The writing was on behalf of the Harvard Palestine Solidarity Committee and solely blamed Israel for the Oct. 7 massacre.

Widespread condemnation ensued, and some U.S. business leaders vowed to blacklist members of the offending groups from gaining jobs.

This led to many, including SALSA, retracting their endorsement of the offensive missive.

The Washington Free Beacon, which originally released the incriminating video, reported that Bharmal completed his undergraduate studies at Stanford.

Ironically, while there he was awarded the J.E. Wallace Sterling Award for what was deemed as service to others. On its website, the school praised Bharmal for “his compassion and humility in service to others.”

In 2018, Stanford lauded the student for what it called his “tremendous impact both on campus and with the communities he has served locally and overseas.”

The university also singled out Bharmal for his role with the controversial Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
