I saw your segment on Hannity & Colmes.

I'm really glad about "Campus Watch". On many campuses the dialogue of ideas has been replaced by a monologue consisting of a litany of pro-Palestinian, pro-Arab claims and accusations that go unanswered.

Recently here in Connecticut the Central Connecticut State University conducted a seminar for teachers on Middle East issues.
