Auburn head basketball coach Bruce Pearl on Wednesday condemned the rise of anti-Israel protests popping up on college and university campuses across the United States as Israel and Palestine continue to wage war.

In reaction to terrorist officials in Palestine praising young protesters on campuses for their support of armed resistance and elimination of "the Zionist entity," the Jewish basketball coach declared that the nation's youth would "eventually learn the truth," as seen in the Bible.

"How much more land do you all need?" he asked. You can try to rewrite history and the Bible all you want! You can lie to our young people about who lived and built Israel into the land of milk and honey! They will eventually learn the truth, and oh, by the way, we ain't goin anywhere!"

Last week, as pro-Palestine protesters claimed they would "seize our universities and force the administration to divest, for the people of Gaza," Pearl pushed for schools to "teach the truth and protect their students from these lies and harassment!"

"Hamas and the people of Gaza attacked Israel, murdered 1200 and still hold hundreds of innocent hostage," he wrote on Twitter. "Our Universities need to teach the truth and protect their students from these lies and harassment! We can't be afraid to openly love our country, be on the side of good vs evil, support our friends worldwide and stand up to terrorists and enemies that threaten us!"

Pearl has been outspoken in protecting Israel, even criticizing President Joe Biden for enabling Israel's enemies. He has also worked with both U.S. Sens. Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) and Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) to support Israel while also condemning the rise of antisemitism on college campuses.
