U-M grad and Palestinian rights activist Fadi Kiblawi was arrested by Israel Defense Forces “during a West Bank protest against the separation fence on Sunday,” Haaretz reported.
Kiblawi has been living in East Jerusalem this summer traveling through his native land. Last week, Kiblawi photographed and documented occupying soldiers tear gas and open fire on Palestinians praying in the West Bank town of As Sawiya.
Kiblawi was the co-founder of Students Allied for Freedom and Equality, a member of the Michigan Daily’s editorial board for a brief stint, and the Minority Affairs Chair in student government during his tenure at Michigan. He was also the organizer of the Divestment Conference in 2002. He is currently a law student at George Washington University.
