100 words - The Conflict

At my local miniature supermarket, run by Arabs, I saw a paper calling people to join a protest against Israel’s actions in the Palestinian territories. It seemed like a good idea to join. The Israeli government and army are way out of control.
It took me some time to realize that I was still stuck in the who’s right/who’s wrong mindset. The violence continues because neither party wants peace. So if I was honest, I’d march with Arabs in the morning, shouting ‘down with Israeli oppression’, then march with Jews in the afternoon, shouting ‘down with Palestinian terrorism’.
