It's about to get very real. Columbia has just been hit with a Title VI lawsuit, and the plaintiff is asking for class action status. A group of Congressional Democrats are also invoking Title VI in their demand that the university get things under control. Faculty members are forming a human chain around the encampment to obstruct police efforts at removing them. This puts Columbia in the unenviable position of explaining in a Title VI lawsuit why its faculty is literally standing beside Hamas supporters (lookup what SJP says, it's accurate).

the majority of those protesting Israel’s actions in Palestine aren’t supporters of Hamas

^^ got a cite for that claim? The student organizations involved in these actions signed open letters both on their own websites and in thrir respective student newspapers in the days after October 7th expressing solidarity with Hamas and its actions. I believe the main organization behind SJP has also explicitly stated their support for Hamas.

^^the hostages have the full support of the Israeli and US governments. They have powerful forces seeking justice and safety.

Gaza civilians have lots of international support, but that support is powerless unless it can pressure either the US or Israeli government. American citizens don't have much ability to do the latter (and surprisingly little to do the former unfortunately!).

Quote :
"Amid growing frustration in Israel over where the war is headed eight months in, Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Wednesday accused Israel's leadership of ignoring his requests to discuss a replacement to Hamas rule in Gaza.

"Since October, I have been raising this issue consistently in the Cabinet, and have received no response," Gallant said.

His speech, broadcast live, is the harshest rebuke yet of Israel's war strategy in Gaza from within Israel's three-man war cabinet. It set off a political firestorm that could threaten Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's hold on power.

if they haven't done it in the last 60 years, doesn't seem likely they will do so any time soon

meanwhile in that same period the Palestinians have tried to coup Jordan, caused a civil war in Lebanon and are not exactly welcome in Egypt either.

but I do hope that they get their State and figure out how to be responsible members of the international community. just not getting my hopes up

Taking hostages is "peaceful protesting," right? Smirks have sent in the SWAT team with orders to shoot to kill.

Quote :
" Dr. Hassan Hamdan was one of the few trained plastic surgeons in Gaza, a specialist in wound reconstruction. His skills were vitally needed as Israel’s military onslaught filled hospitals with patients torn by blasts and shrapnel, so the 65-year-old came out of retirement to help.

Earlier this month, an Israeli airstrike killed him along with his wife, son, two daughters, a daughter-in-law, a son-in-law, six grandchildren and one other person, as his family sheltered in their home in an Israeli-declared “safe zone.”"
