TITLE

‘Uncivil’ Activism: Arab, South Asian, and Afghan American Youth Politics after 9/11

ABSTRACT

This chapter is based on ethnographic research in Silicon Valley about post-9/11 Muslim American youth activism and coalitions linking Arab, South Asian, and Afghan American college students. The chapter explores not only how campus activism related to Palestine is the object of intense repression, but also the site of cross-racial, pan-Islamic, and transnational solidarities. The experience of Palestine solidarity activism and the exceptional silencing of the Palestinian narrative in the USA, including in educational contexts, produces what the author calls ‘Palestinianization’ for Arab as well as non-Arab Americans. Furthermore, the inadmissibility of Palestinian rights as human rights forces youth to confront the limitations of liberal human and civil rights and explore alternative political paradigms.
