Another Ivy League university saw anti-Israel agitators make a mockery of its graduation ceremony as demonstrations targeting the Jewish state continue to roil higher education in the United States, according to a report by Fox News:

“Hundreds of Yale graduates staged a walkout from the university’s graduation ceremony in Newhaven on Monday.

“The protesting students could be seen waving Palestinian flags as well as banners demanding that the college ‘disclose and divest.’ Anti-Israel protests have ravaged campuses across the country for weeks, forcing some universities to cancel their end-of-year ceremonies altogether.

“The student protesters at Yale’s event walked out as diplomas were being handed out to graduates. The students also chanted ‘free Palestine’ as Yale President Peter Salovey delivered his address.

“‘It is not enough to retreat into silos alongside those who are already inclined to agree with us. Nor is it effective to ostracize, call out, or shame or silence well-meaning others who do not,’ Salovey said in his speech.

“Students also waved Palestinian flags throughout the ceremony.”
