How & Nosm Hit the Holy Land
The State of Israel utterly dominates the Palestinian territories and its people, life is made harder than we can ever imagine from simply watching the reports on the BBC, collective punishment is committed by the Israelis - that is punishment on a mass of people for the misdeeds of one or a few of the group - land is continually being seized from the Palestinians. But let's not judge the situation as it stands without assessing what has happened in the past. The wall is a stain on global humanity, but imagine what ends you'd go to if you were repeatedly kicked in the face by your neighbours. This is a two way assault and when a Palestinian kid pulls out his silver penknife, asks you if you love Israel, to which you mumble something inaudible hoping that he changes the subject back to the Barcelona vs Real Madrid dichotomy, and then makes a sideways stabbing motion in the air, while uttering the word "Israel", you can bet that wall or no wall, both sides are guilty.
