As Palestinian solidarity has taken off on U.S. university campuses, administrators have responded by suspending free speech and the right to assembly and by calling in riot police to violently repress peaceful student and faculty protesters. It is clear that the war on Palestinians is also a war on all those of us who stand against genocide and who oppose U.S. government and corporate support for it. William I.
