A RIGHTEOUS MAN BY LAURA MARIA CENSABELLA
“There are groups now. ...Zionist groups who watch students. Take down names. On a list. Jewish watchdogs. If you go to any demonstrations criticizing any policies of Israel.”
Two friends since boyhood, now roommates at a Catholic college. One Jewish, one Arab-American Muslim. The best of friends. Until one fateful day when one decides to protest, and the other doesn’t. Father Gaines comes to investigate the violent act.
