I am very grateful to my patient young Palestinian friends who have helped me to understand things better and wonder why it took me such a long time.
I believe part of the answer is the way people communicate and their motivation.

I came back to Jerusalem from Jenin, supposedly the hotbed of violent militancy, yesterday. It was an amazing and heart-wrenching experience. I met real peace wishers and makers who are at the same time victims and was literally overwhelmed by their hospitality, generosity and warmth.

Perhaps you can suggest some ideas
