One of my blogging buddies, People in the Sun, wrote a post about his experience of serving in the Israeli army. It's a really wonderful post, a fascinating first person account, and, well, there's lots of things I could say about it, but, if you have the time you should really read it yourself and see what you think.
Thinking of this stuff reminds me of this Palestinian girl I worked with back in Chicago. She was really great, we were both way into art so that's what we talked about a lot of times, but she talked about Israel from time to time. It was cool hearing her views, rarely do you hear the Palestinian side of things.
But it's such a complicated situation, mostly complicated by greedy politicians who stand to gain from things not working out...
God, it's so easy blaming politicians, I love it!
By the way, I just discovered this picture, it makes me laugh. I always knew Sesame Street was in cahoots with bin Laden.
