Since the last user message does not pertain to the designation of a terrorist organization, I'll provide a detailed summary of the news article.

Palestine Legal, an organization advocating for the rights of individuals in the US to express support for Palestinians, has filed a federal civil rights complaint against Columbia University. This action follows the mass arrest of anti-war protesters on Columbia's campus after the university called the police to disperse the demonstrators. Palestine Legal alleges that Columbia's actions were discriminatory against those who support Palestinians.

The protests at Columbia were in opposition to the ongoing Gaza war, with demonstrators calling for an end to the conflict. The decision by Columbia's President to involve the New York City police in clearing the campus drew criticism from various human rights groups, students, and faculty members. Over 100 individuals were arrested during the protests, echoing similar demonstrations against the Vietnam War at Columbia decades ago.

These protests have not been limited to Columbia University but have spread to other campuses across the US, resulting in hundreds of arrests. The Gaza war has sparked intense debate in the US, with Israel's actions drawing allegations of genocide and widespread hunger from advocacy groups. Additionally, incidents of hate and bias targeting Jews, Arabs, and Palestinians have been reported across the country.

US Education Secretary Miguel Cardona acknowledged reports of allegations of antisemitism on college campuses. Concerns about hate crimes have been raised following incidents like the fatal stabbing of a 6-year-old Palestinian American in Illinois, the shooting of three students of Palestinian descent in Vermont, and the stabbing of a Palestinian American man in Texas.

The Gaza war began after Hamas militants attacked Israel, resulting in casualties on both sides. Hamas claims its actions are in resistance to Israeli occupation, while Israel asserts its right to self-defense.

This development underscores the complex and contentious nature of discussions surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as well as the challenges of addressing issues of discrimination and bias in academic settings.
