I admit that I often forget the difference between a government and it's people. I tend to believe that all Israeli people are unified in their disdain for the Palestinian people, and it makes me angry. Just as much of the world most fails to see the difference between my American government and it's people. This article was a slap in the face of my ignorance, and a glorious reminder that we are all the same. It's people, not governments, that make up a country, people with varying views and opinions. I will try to never again combine the actions of a government with the will of it's citizens.
