Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld's Facebook post.

Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld, the daughter of the famous “Tiger Mother” went after Harvard’s Palestine Solidarity Committee  after being among the students who received mock eviction notices on their dorm door last week.

The notices were meant to mimic those given to families whose illegal homes are set to be demolished in Israel.

Chua-Rubenfeld, whose father is Jewish and whose mother, Amy, thrust the family into the spotlight several years ago with a book that detailed the rigorous regimen she used to raise her two daughters, is currently a freshman at Harvard.

Watchdog Uncovers New Members in Antisemitic Student Ring at U of Tennessee That Supports Terrorism, Lauds Hitler

A ring of antisemitic students at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK) has turned out to be larger than originally...

“Came home this morning to find this fake eviction notice from the Palestinian Solidarity Committee on my door alerting me to the ‘Israeli Apartheid’,” she wrote, continuing, “I find this sick, uninformed, and deeply offensive to peoples who have actually been the victims of racial oppression and genocide.”

“I really couldn’t care less about violations of international law, because the majority of countries voting on international law are anti-Semitic and would love to see Israel destroyed,” she added.

Taking a swing at the offending organization which posted the flyers she continued, “And no, I certainly do not want to attend your film screening, rally, or die-in, which is probably the most tasteless form of protest I can even conceive of.”

“Anyways. Yeah,” she concluded, “keep protesting while Israel cultivates discipline, education, and training, sounds like a great strategy to me.”

    Mr. Franklin, you missed the whole point and you excerpted what she said. Most vessels of international law (i.e, the Hague) are anti-Semitic and often rule against Israel. That was Sophia’s point. You are perfect fodder for the troll who love to excerpt comments like yours and your reaction to a young person, sticking up for Israel should be supported. Save your harsh comments for stone throwers that leave 2 yr old babies in serious condition.

    good for you Tigar lady

  • Good to hear something positive come out of the general aura of negativity emanating from “Palestinian” sources.

    Bravo Sophia! You have a great message, but those who need to hear it the most will insert their ear plugs rather than listen and confront their own shortcomings.

    “I really couldn’t care less about violations of international law” –Sophia

    These are the kinds of people at Harvard? We get upset about the PSC posting mock eviction notices for calling attention to a serious problem in Israel/Palestine but let people get away with saying horrible horrible things like that? You people disgust me. Sophia is a disgrace to Judaism and Jews everywhere!
