Very disheartening information. I've spent much of my adult life believing that the right wing extremists in both this country and Israel were a vocal, but not very influential part in either nation. The outspoken racist behavior of the American students in Israel, who could not even answer even the simplest questions concerning Israel's government or history, while at the same time claiming to be solid, knowledgable friends of Israel is unconscionable. Those Americans are the ones that need to get of Israel, not the refugees from Africa. The fundamentalist members of world religions must be dealt with by the sane members of the human race. This extreme anger fueled by fear, hatred, and most strongly by lack of knowledge is dangerous anywhere, but the powder keg middle east does need this injection of American racism and hatred; they have enough of a problem dealing with the fears and hatred running rampant n their own society. My belief has always been that saner heads will prevail, but this rapid growth of right wing hatred and condemnation of others because of skin color, religious beliefs, or nationality seems to be a growing force around the globe. Just typing this comment, I begin to feel that my writing this, could lead to violent reprisal from those who disagree. What a shame that we cannot learn to have civil discussions anymore. In the early sixties,in my last years of High School, we had a class called Problems of Democracy in which we discussed world and national events. We learned from and respected the opinions of others. I suspect that if someone tried to put a course in our public school systems today entitled Problems of Democracy the person making such a proposal would be named an Enemy of The State!

wow, the racist comments towards Obama from the American students in Israel were kind of shocking. I don't know... would they be emboldened to call him a nigger here in the States? I also was surprised that they didn't know why Netanyahu is!

sorry, I meant "who Netanyahu is".
