SHOCK: Majority of Americans Aged 18-24 Think Israel 'Should Be Ended,' Given to Hamas and Palestinians

If you haven't been worried by the reactions of so many American students, professors, and university presidents over the Hamas terror attacks against Israel on October 7, then maybe you haven't been paying attention.

Antisemitism has run rampant on many campuses, and when three top school heads appeared before Congress, they failed to condemn "protesters" who were harassing Jewish students, shouting "intifada revolution," and calling for the extermination of the entire country.

But the news about the poison being spread in our system of higher education just keeps getting more disturbing as a new Harvard-Harris poll shows that an astonishing 51 percent of American youth aged 18-24 indicated support "For Israel to be ended and given to Hamas and the Palestinians."

Astonishing. 

Illustrating the huge opinion gap between different generations, only four percent of people over 65 agreed with wiping the entire country off the map.

Meanwhile, the youngsters think Israelis are the bad guys in their war against Hamas terrorists:

When you count people of every age, the number drops to 19 percent -- still almost a quarter of those polled -- who think Israel should be ended. There are many more questions in this survey, but there are some that truly stand out in their insane results: for instance, 24 percent of 18-24 years deny that Hamas committed rapes and other crimes against women.

It's one thing to have an opinion, but these young people are flat-out denying proven facts.

Meanwhile, 76 percent in the younger age bracket believe Hamas "can be negotiated with to create peace," despite the fact that they're a governmental entity/terrorist group who have gone on record stating their main goal in life is to kill Israelis. Kind of hard to negotiate with folks like that.

Even more answers continued to show that the 18-24 generation has apparently lost their collective minds:

Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) expressed his dismay:

These individuals siding with evil over democracy should be a wake-up call.

Ideological rot among young Americans, driven by woke values and victim culture, has gotten so bad they’ve convinced themselves to sympathize with actual terrorists who hate America.

Pollster Mark Penn teamed up with former New York City Councilmember Andrew Stein to write an editorial saying that "our youth are misguided, not evil":

The truth is that false narratives have been allowed to fester and sink into large numbers of Generation Z students...

What could possibly be driving this high level of support for Hamas?

At the core, our high schools and universities have failed to teach our young people even the most basic facts, leading them to support a movement they would never back if they were grounded in reality.

Gen Z has a fundamentally misguided picture of what Hamas and Israel are and how they treat different peoples.

These numbers are profoundly disturbing and show just how broken our educational system has become, and how many formerly venerable institutions are rife with poisonous ideology. We knew it was there, but the Hamas attacks exposed just how deeply infected college life has become. The pushback must start now, and it must be strong, or we are all going to be in big trouble. 

This generation is going to grow up, after all -- and many from its ranks will end up at the levers of power in education, government, and business. That is a truly terrifying thought.
