There is much to celebrate indeed, but there are two blatant contradictions in this report. First we have the Hillel director repeating the universal Hillel trope that whatever is done has to be student-driven, when in the next paragraph we are told that to that end HE had to "assemble the broadest possible coalition". This is typical Hillel duplicity: "oh no, we don't do anything, the students do it all" when in fact they keep pulling the strings, either directly or through funding. The second problem with this idyllic picture is that the reader is informed that "everyone is for a two-state solution". They should know better. Not everyone is, and the fact that opponents were not included in the debate shows the limits of the big tent concept. When all sides to the debate are genuinely included, left and right, supporters and opponents of the settlements, yes, then it will be time to congratulate each other. But in the meantime, let's not deceive ourselves.
