Pro-Palestinian protests escalate at US universities, leading to arrests and clashes with police

Pro-Palestinian protests have intensified at universities across the United States, with demonstrations spreading from Columbia University to campuses in California and Texas. The protests, which call for universities to divest from companies with ties to Israel, have led to arrests and confrontations with law enforcement. The demonstrations have triggered concerns about safety and free speech on campus, with Jewish students expressing fear and calls for action from university administrations. The escalating tensions have raised questions about the balance between free speech rights and maintaining a safe and inclusive environment for learning.
