Protesting the War in Gaza

April 26, 2024  |  129 words  |  Politics

This week the ongoing pro-Palestinian protests, which at times have included some unforgivable excesses directed at Jewish students, spread from a few high-profile universities on the East Cost to many different college campuses across the United States.

These events have been examined and analyzed by a variety of responsible media outlets, especially in the last couple of days, and I have nothing much to add.

Except to repeat the observations already cited by others:  Concern for the plight of innocent Palestinian citizens is not the same as support for the militant Hamas group.  And criticizing the Biden administration’s ongoing funding of foreign aid to Israel, given the indiscriminate way the Netanyahu government there has chosen to prosecute its’ war against Hamas, should not automatically brand one as an anti-Semite.
