    Change will not come about unbtil BOTH SIDES hear the narrative of the other.It is only then that they will recognise and realise that there are problems to be solved,that there is right and wrong on both sides....not just believe that it is a question of'US' versus the 'ENEMY' Two true experiences; 1) 1977..I was invited to have dinner with some palestinian/Arab students by mutual friend.They told me that they had been taught that all Jews hated them,and that this was the first time they had had conversations with a Jew 2) An eminent doctor psychiatrist had several Arab students.One day(in the UK) one of them approached him and asked'Is it true that you are Jewish? Yes he replied.But you are so nice saId the student.He then realised how he had been brainwashed and burst into tears.He brought all his friends to meet this'NICE JEW'. So,you see they are brained,BUT SO ARE THE POPULATION IN ISRAEL,maybe more secretly. The textbook should be REQUIRED READING ON BOTH SIDES.If we have nothing to hide.it can only have posaitive consequences.However ,if that is not the case,and/or our youth ON BOTH SIDES can see the problem rather than the ENEMY maybe we will make progress othger than by guns.,
