Three fault lines on American campuses exposed by escalating protests

Pro-Palestinian protests at American universities are on the rise, with demonstrations at Columbia University, UCLA, Virginia Tech, University of Florida, Tulane University and others leading to nearly 1,000 arrests. Tent encampments have sprung up on campuses across the country. University leaders are being criticized for allegedly coddling student protesters and allowing anti-Semitic speech to go unpunished. Democrats in the House of Representatives have called on Columbia University to disband the encampment, citing a hostile environment for Jewish students. Some teachers suggest handling protests as teachable moments through negotiation and discourse instead of police intervention.
