23. As a kid growing up, my entire life has seen Middle East warring

For many years since, I always thought that Israel had the moral high ground. It was not until bush II became pres. , with his hands off policy for Israel, that I began to notice that Palestinians were a group of people being "occupied" by brutish Israeli forces. This made no sense to me at the time. It was very hard to accept. I still support the right of the nation of Israel to exist and I believe that the USA need to defend her. I understand that they must have gotten so sick of the bombings ... but they were not forced into extremest right wing policies. I want to see a change in the way Israel treats those that live in the occupied territories and find a two state agreement.
