is reporting that the leaders of the students opposition movement have rejected government calls to focus on Israel and the Palestinians. The nature and the vehemence of their statement, along with their use of the word "terrorist," and explicit reject of hostile rhetoric towards Israel, are cause for hope.

It also suggests that it is possible for serious, religious Muslims to come to terms with Israel's existence.
