In Berkeley, and similar places, part of currently "politically correct", fashionable "leftism", seems to include an automatic, knee jerk anti-Israel position. When I have spoken to these twenty something students, n general, I have found that they know nothing more about the Arab-Israeli conflict than the bumper stickers on their cars. Conversely, the Muslim students that I have similarly discussed these issues are all quite adamantly clear that ALL of the world's troubles and problems are somehow caused by "The Jews", that Israel must necessarily be eradicated, and that the "leftist" students are, as Lenin said, "useful idiots."
