    All you people demonizing these kids are crazy! calling them fascists, scum, spoiled, anti-Semites just because they have a political stance that doesn't fall in line with the official Israeli position. You don't know them, and obviously you don't know what they are about. You make assumptions that all who disagree with you are flawed. If there weren't brave dissenters in any society, we would not have civil rights and justice any where. What did they do that was so bad? People on this forum claim they blocked free speech! They interrupted for five minutes and then left. The speech went on. No one's rights were trampled on. Dichter still got to speak. I know these people, I go to school with them. They are intelligent and thoughtful for the most part and you are wrong to simply write them off. Love it or hate it, the centers of Jewish intellectual and student life are increasingly questioning the status quo of Israeli policy. If things keep going the way they are, Israel will not only be internationally isolated amongst nations, but even from a large portion of diaspora coreligionists. This is the reality, whether you hate these kids or not.
