It is heartening to see Princetonians standing up for Palestine and denouncing the actions of the Zionist theocratic ethnostate as it bombs hospitals, refugee camps, and other civilian infrastructure in the name of wiping out a nebulous terrorist group that is, at once, so easy to track and impossible to pin down with military action that lessens the devastating number of civilian causalities. Princeton itself, which was quick to denounce the actions of Hamas on Oct. 7, has been eerily silent about the bombardment of these civilians in Gaza. One can only hope they discover their humanity soon. I hope that Princetonians will continue to stand with Palestine and that, soon, we will see a liberated Palestine.
