Iranian state media promote video of Kamala Harris failing to reject Israel’s claim of “ethnic genocide”
Iranian state media on Thursday promoted a clip of Vice President Kamala Harris praising a student who had just accused the United States of funding Israel’s “ethnic genocide” against Israel. Palestinians.
Press TV, an international media outlet affiliated with Iran, tweeted the exchange Harris had Tuesday at George Mason University in Virginia with a student, which raised questions about US money being provided to allies Israel and the ‘Saudi Arabia.
“I see that over the summer, for example, there have been astronomical protests and demonstrations” about the Palestinian cause, the student said. She went on to note how “just a few days ago funds were allocated to continue supporting Israel, which pains my heart because it is ethnic genocide and displacement of people, the same that happened in America, and I’m sure you know about it. “
The student claimed that money that could help Americans grapple with housing and health care costs will instead “set Israel on fire and support Saudi Arabia and so on.”

Harris said she was “happy” the student voiced her concerns.
“And again, it’s about the fact that your voice, your point of view, your experience, your truth is not to be suppressed and has to be heard, right? And one of the things for which we fight in a democracy, don’t we? ”says Harris.
Harris was criticized for letting the student’s comment go unchecked.
