    ...in a position that will certainly impede their abilities to succeed. A criminal record follows you everywhere, a Job interview, when leaving your country, just about every where. So why have this taint the record of a youth, if the crime was protesting but not violent. Besides, I think if we looked at it more thoroughly we'd find that many of the youth didn't fully understand the issue beyond them losing their home (which I agree is very difficult, but was for a greater purpose; a chance for peace, even if it failed, did expose the underbelly of Pal. terror) I think actually we might find similarities btw settler youth and Pal. youth suicde bombers. both were jaded with many important facts held from them. i.e. they were some what brainwashed, this isn't to absolve a violent offender of sin or crime, but rather just explain that often, we treat the symptoms while the causes still pervade us. But no cause justifies Suicide bombers on Civilians, unless you are brainwashed too.
