Starting in July, Israel—with full backing from the rulers of the U.S.—massacred over 2,100 Palestinian people in Gaza, including hundreds of children. The assault was an escalation of Israel’s genocidal ethnic cleansing of Palestine and provoked outrage around the world, including protests on campuses around the U.S. and a growing movement for boycott, divestment, and sanctions against Israel. The question is sharply posed: Is the lesson of the Nazi holocaust that never again will my people be fucked with, even if that means carrying out horrific crimes and genocide? Or is it that never again must these kinds of crimes be carried out anywhere, by anyone?
