Undergraduates, even from the Ivies, have little enough knowledge with which to take sides in the current war in the Middle East. The mistakes go back over 100 years between Jews seeking their homeland back and Arabs or Palestinians their homeland as well. The solution at the start of the 20th century ignored the needs and rights of both communities, and we now somewhat late have the terrible results. Both communities have legitimate claims which with good will could be solved.
