Students at Oberlin College erected a memorial to dozens of Palestinians killed in an Israeli rocket strike without acknowledging that more than half of the casualties were members of a Palestinian terrorist organization.
“Last week, Israel unleashed violent airstrikes on the Gaza Strip to assassinate Bahaa Abu al-Atta and his wife on Tuesday, November 12th,” the memorial read. It accused the Israeli military of “killing 34 unarmed Palestinian civilians, including 8 children.”
