Debate heats up between students over recent Israeli-Palestinian conflict
After an alarm rang from a bullhorn, simulating air-raid sirens, the students fell to the ground and assumed a corpse pose, symbolic of those who died Gaza in the current conflict between Israelis and Palestinian.
Pro-Palestinian and pro-Israeli students verbally clashed during a student-organized "die-in" Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon in front of Clark Hall....
Ted Rudow III,MA 1/29/09 Israeli terrorism is both very evident and very quiet evident in that it occupies Palestinian lands brazenly, and has for more than fifty years, and quiet in that many little acts of terrorism happen every day in out-of-the-way corners that make no news or no waves. Fields and orchards are bulldozed, or farmers cannot harvest them, for fear of being shot. Food supplies are limited or curtailed, or made too expensive to purchase, resulting in malnutrition. Now, it is happen every day!
Factories and warehouses are blown up in case they might produce or hide weapons. Individual Palestinians are harassed, humiliated, beaten, tormented, tortured, imprisoned, or killed every day. And all this happens out of sight of the world, the victims unreported, their anguish unnoticed, yet the agony enduring a lifetime, for those who survive. This is terrorism!
