    Ive been trying to figure out why so many people see the whole thing completely differently. Most people seem legitimate and honest and yet have been called liars by the other side,I dont think most of them are. I think it comes down to frame of reference (I know it sounds obvious and simple,but I also think that most things that seem complicated are at the base simple) People who seem worldly,liberal,open and visionary in America,when they talk about Israel they become narrow,defensive,protective, and closed when it comes to Israel.Their frame of reference narrows. Everything seems one way,and is. On the Palestinian side there is definately more movement,but I think because the Palestinians have less to lose,they have lost so much. But even here they dont see (apart from Ibrahim and Sami)that their were great losses to their leaders and also might I add the leaders of other Arab countries who I think really dont care about them.This they cannot see.But the tough hand of Israel they see all too clearly. Two blind people. How can they possibly see each other? How can they possibly make peace with each other? I have a friend who helps families of victims of terror.They are absolute horror stories,how can a Palestinian understand that apart from the usual revengist/political lines they come up with. How can a Jew understand the anguish that a Palestinian family goes through on a day to day basis,and immediately you say that there is a DEFENCE! WE didnt do it. Most people are in their own little worlds. I ask Palestinians and Israelis to cross (G-d forbid)over to see how the other side is suffering,to come OUT of your little worlds to see the pain the other is feeling,because even though there is two different worlds this pain is universal.
