"I think about the dogs unleashed on Martin Luther King in Birmingham. I think about the beatings. That's what it took for Americans to see the justice of his cause. We will be risking our lives, but that is what it takes."

On February 27, Stanford students organized a campaign for his release. A petition drive's included. It states:

"Fadi should not be detained for an indefinite period of time on false charges. It is imperative that the Israeli government release (him) so that he may continue to speak for his people and PEACEFULLY push for basic human rights."

On its first day, over 1,000 supporters signed it. They urge others join them for justice.

On February 26, ASSU (Associated Students of Stanford University) undergraduate senators drafted a resolution calling for Provost/Acting President John Etchemendy to publicly support fair legal treatment and Quran's immediate release.

His treatment directly affects Stanford students, they said. They cited "emotionally distressing" video footage of his arrest and close association with current students. They also stressed public support and outrage following his abusive treatment.

Palestinians stage regular nonviolent protests. Israeli security forces confront them violently.

Arrests, injuries, and at times deaths, result. Palestinians are denied justice. Longstanding Israeli policy enforces occupation ruthlessness.
