Today was the "Day of Action" against Israel on the University of California at Berkeley campus. The Mulim Students Association and Students for Just Us in Palestine shrieked "from the River to the Sea", and "We support the Intifada" They bolstered their numbers with career anti-Israel activists from the community, but they were largely ignored by the students hurrying off to Top Dog for lunch
The students of SJP made it perfectly clear that ALL of Israel was occupied territory to them, and no, this had nothing to do with the territory acquired during the 6 day war
The student group Tikvah: Students for Israel gathered in quiet dignity, holding signs urging tolerance, freedom and dialog.
Some students prayed
Others held a teach-in.

Thanks to Tikvah, students for Israel at UC Berkeley for maintaining your dignity, composure and civility in the face of such ugliness and provocation.
