    I was visiting Kalandia refuge camp back in 82 and while walking with a friend, a Jeep was speeding toward us and two soldiers jumped and pushed us in along of another youth who was already in the jeep. For total of 25 minutes ride we were kicked slapped and kicked again with back of M16.The kicks were painful but not hard enough to cause us any real harm, though it took me few days to walk again normally. We were accused of throwing stones. After we were forced to exit the Jeep, the solder held us for 45 minutes at the entrance of the refuge camp. Then a Bedouin commander came and asked us if we did run when the Jeep was speeding toward us, we replied no. Luckily the soldiers who gave us the beating didn’t lie and said the same and we were let go. However, we were lucky. I have heard hundreds and hundreds of youths telling much worst stories and actually most only thought to join militant Palestinian groups after their humiliating experience with "Jewish soldiers"
