many israelis do not think highly or palestinians and vice-a-versa. what they really should be focusing on is the corruption and ineptness in their own societies. in that regard, i think the palestinians are far worse off due to their very, very traditional and patriarchal society. israelis are also being encroached by capitalist opportunism that benefits one part of the population (both arabs and jews) while the rest, the workers, get the shaft with very low minimum wage etc. most igrnoant people in general will apply quite naive stereotypes on the other. funny thing is that arabs and jews can choose to know each other quite easily if they just will it. they don't live that far away from each other, after all.
