"Israeli students are an indifferent community. While throughout the world students spearhead public campaigns, in Israel their struggle has narrowed to tuition levels." How true!! While I may disagree with the students regarding the flotilla incident, student demonstrations are vital to social changes and opinions. I noticed this indifference from Israeli students when I was studying in Israel last year and compared that to my U.S. university that had at least 5 demonstrations a week regarding human trafficking, health care, world hunger etc. It is also a shame that students who are stepping out to take some sort of action or to voice their opinions are put down by school leaders. Most Israeli students serve in the armed forces and should use some of the rights that they are trained to protect. The freedom to demonstrate is a great privilege enjoyed by many modern societies and should not be taken for granted.
