Was it a crime to call Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin a murderer? Or was that freedom of speech? What is the appropriate language of a democracy, and where are the limits? Like little Platos before their Socrates, hundreds of 10th-grade Israelis in blue jeans and thick-soled boots, in flannel shirts and black leather jackets, crowded into classrooms normally reserved for geometry and biology lessons to discuss the nature of democracy with their educators.

Rising at 4:30 a.m. to harvest bananas for six hours may hardly seem like a vacation. But for 10 Los Angeles high school students who spent two months on a kibbutz in Israel, it made for an experience of a lifetime. "The greatest thing was the people," said 17-year-old Shawn Taylor, a Roosevelt High School senior who is sharing her experiences with classmates. "Everyone worked really hard together. . . . We felt very accepted."

For the frightened students of one Jerusalem high school, Monday's burials of 18 soldiers who died Sunday in a suicide bombing held a special sort of pain. Hundreds of teen-agers from Rene Cassin High School flocked to Mt. Herzl military cemetery to pay their last respects to two fellow classmates, young paratroopers who were buried close together as a military honor guard fired a last salute.

The military wing of Hamas, a radical Islamic group, claimed responsibility for the attack at Israel's oldest and most prestigious institution of higher education.

Re "From Dhaka, With Hope," Opinion, Aug. 17: Ted Widmer tells us about the American Studies Institute, a new program that offers Muslim college students from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh an alternative to religious fundamentalism with "the strongest weapons in our arsenal: hope, tolerance and an educational system second to none." It sounds like a great program. Why not extend it to Christian students from the U.S., where some religious fundamentalists preach the rapture of the church in which true Christian believers gain immortality but the rest of humanity faces apocalyptic terror?
