I write in reference to the mistitled article “Students Gather to Mourn After Violence in Israel, Gaza.” In describing the vigil held by the Princeton Students for Justice in Palestine, it was mentioned without comment that the “mourners” where chanting “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” That is not a statement of mourning, but rather a barely coded statement advocating the destruction of Israel and elimination of its Jewish residents. (For clarity, Israel is the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.) A more apt title might be “Students Gather to Mourn and Call for the Destruction of the Jewish State after Violence in Israel, Gaza.”
