    Unbelievable that the Isreal is allowed to kill 70 people for throwing
    rocks at occupying troops. Are there protest anyplace else around the
    world? Neither political candidate is saying anything either, afraid to
    alienate ANY voters, but then we couldn't expect them to. The US government
    has been supporting Isreal, whose government supports their most right wing
    elements, since they began.
    My impression is that students all want to get rich and are lulled into
    style, music and going their merry way. Look forward to other's views who
    are on campus.
