More American Jewish Students Take Up Study of the Arab World

These students say their interest grew because of their heritage and that they are drawn to act as bridges between cultures — explaining the Arab world to Americans, and America (and sometimes Jews) to Arabs.

@Olivier5,
Good news to me, except that I won't get to see it, being quite far away - there's a major display coming up for David Hockney's art work at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. I like the guy.

This one because it makes me laugh.

Quote:
While touring the monuments in Washington with my family; which were all closed because of the government shutdown, I came upon a Texas delegation blaming the President for the shut down during an interview. I called out, "why don't you put a clean resolution to a vote and see if it passes."

Republican Congressman Pete Sessions's reply? "We're not French, we don't surrender."

The US Congress is now officially "French". Smile
