Why don't you get it?

Reader comment on item: [Brandeis University President Jehuda] Reinharz, Israel and Me
in response to reader comment: Email correspondence with Dr. Reinharz regarding Brandeis University and Israel (June 2006)

I am also a Brandeis graduate. So why can't you understand what is so obvious to me? Brandeis has no official religious or political affiliation. As much as you, and others, would love for the school to be officially Jewish (trust me, I know), it isn't.

The fact that they recognize people with differing political views is part of what makes Brandeis so fantastic. They have the guts to do what other schools will not. They have the vision to recognize ability where others miss it.

But, again, why is it so hard for you to understand that they school wants to be as fair as possible? That they want to give the students as broad a perspective as possible? This is a GOOD thing.
