    It is not fair to say that any person can know exactly what goes on unless you actually live there. However, one of the reasons you do not choose to live there is because you know you don?t want to live there. The settlers represent a small more politically or ideologically motivated part of Israeli society. The Palestinian counterparts also allow the world to see the ugliest part of the human race, unlike us they tend to see and rejoice in our misery, but nevertheless, it is chicken and egg. I try to stop actually watching both sides behavior when I saw two soldiers being lynched and writing it now STILL brings tears to my eyes. I never want to see anyone show such ugly behavior so long as I live, not them and not us and no where else in the world. I can not understand why anyone would. There was an argument here that as Israel is the Goliath and this automatically puts David as the righteous one. David was good in the story books because he appeared to be the weaker of the two. The Palestinians are weaker in this sense, but David was a good person, not because he was weak, but because he was good.
