New violence in Israel and West Bank
Standing Atop an Israeli Tank
Just a few months ago I took a trip to Israel. I had an amazing time seeing all of the wonderful sights. Israel is truly a beautiful country that appears to be so peaceful, so peaceful I could never imagine that such a conflict like the one between Palestine and Israel would ever happen. Being a Jew, I obviously know about the tension but it's so hard to believe. I was twelve at the time I stood on that tank. It never occurred to me that one day like today that a similar tank would be used to kill. I hope that the conflict can be resolved very soon and then it can be resolved without anymore bloodshed. Like I said, I'm Jewish, and it really worries me to see my homeland and its neighbors fighting and suffering.
