Jews are just people - neither more or less moral/evil or smart/stupid than people belonging to other religions or ethnicities. Of course Jews are just as capable of injustice and cruelty towards others when they, (the Jews) are the more powerful. Its easy enough to emphasize the parts of your religion which are compassionate or uphold justice for the weak etc when you are the weaker party. But within Greater Israel, it is the Jews that call the shots, who are the powerful. Of course, they will behave just as badly as others until their power is curtailed. The fact of the historical suffering of their forebears is not necessarily going to give the present generation of Israeli Jews any real understanding, wisdom or compassion towards the Palestinians.
