Gaza Prompts New Awakening Among Arab and Muslim Youth

Qureshi, Yasmin

Washington Report on Middle East Affairs;May/Jun2009, Vol. 28 Issue 4, p46
The article states that Israel's assault on Gaza has spurred an awakening among American Arab and Muslim youth. The 22 days of attacks took place during the most festive holiday season, starting just after Christmas. This new generation of youth grew up witnessing the gross violation of American civil liberties, under the shadow of the PATRIOT Act. The youth who are protesting, on the streets and organizing events on campuses are said to be part of the American story--the story of wars waged in their countries of origin.
