The Israel-Hamas war has sparked controversy and debate at Harvard University, with accusations of antisemitism and concerns about open academic discourse. One professor, Dr. Tarek Masoud, has been praised for his commitment to dialogue and engaging with students from both sides of the conflict. However, there has been criticism of his decision to invite a controversial Palestinian speaker who has justified Hamas's attack.
