Not a good sign

Filed under: culture, the purple door

Yesterday morning, I had a conversation with a UW student who lives at The Purple Door. He’s Jewish (by culture more than belief), and is considering joining the UW fraternity that is primarily Jewish in membership. He told me something I didn’t know – the frat house they occupy is next door to the home base for the campus Islamic organization. Ironic indeed. Sadly, even among these enlightened, educated, hopeful young people, the same kinds of tensions arise that take place in the Middle East – bottles and bricks have flown between the two in some isolated incidents. The parking lot that separates the two buildings is known as the Gaza strip. Clever. I don’t think anything has reached fever pitch, and hopefully it won’t, but it’s definitely disappointing to hear this stuff.
