Harvard College Israel Trek 2014 Itinerary Never Mentioned Visit to Arafat's Grave

March 17 visit not mentioned

Harvard University students recently took a trip to Yasser Arafat’s gravesite on March 17, but the proposed itinerary never mentioned there would be such a visit. The group took a group photo around the terrorist’s tombstone. The trip took place as part of the "Harvard College Israel Trek 2014" which "aims to engage a diverse cohort of undergraduate student leaders of all faiths and backgrounds with Israeli history, culture, and politics."


According to the trek's site, "[the] Israel Trek is made possible by the generous contributions of a number of family foundations and Boston’s Combined Jewish Philanthropies. The Trek is supported by Harvard Hillel​."
The itinerary approval process remains unclear.
