Generally, the diversity of the college campus is enjoyable. Otherwise, I would not have made friends with students that fall outside my closed Jewish world. But with diversity comes difference in belief, lifestyle, and politics. While many in college still try to find out who they are personally, many develop political views based on the world around them.
After two and a half years of attending Rutgers University, a fairly liberal school, I have become used to condemnations of Israel along with the basic anti-Israel rhetoric that join with those criticisms of a situation I believe most Americans do not comprehend. Although I have developed a political callus to the arguments against Israel that are considered to be acceptable and legitimate (such as denunciations of targeted assassinations, settlements, and roadblocks, to name a few), there are still some thoughts and beliefs that I hear from other students that shock me as if I never knew there were those who thought differently than me. As I spend more time in school I learn not only of more arguments against what I see as true, but I also come to find that these arguments are real and dangerous.
