This article saddened me. Of course, Berkeley has always been very far to left of mainstream American policy, but I'm not going to denigrate them. The issue that I question is why they would block J Street, an organization that is quite far to the left of mainstream Jewish policy. It would be better to include their views, open them for discussion, understand nuances. Berkeley seems to have shut the door on open conversation, while singling out Israel for special denigration. This is what causes many Israelis and American Jews to dig in their heels; they are afraid that no one can see their point of view.
