Queen Rania al Abdullah defended the spate of anti-Israel protests sweeping campuses across the US, arguing that the students simply want peace and justice.

“To vilify them as being, you know, pro-Hamas or pro-terrorism or antisemitic — I think that’s inaccurate, And I think it’s somewhat patronizing,” Rania told CBS’ “Face the Nation” in an interview that aired Sunday.

“A lot of them are well-read, thoughtful young individuals who know exactly what they’re protesting. They are protesting for justice.”
