It is easy to paint all Israelis with the same brush, however Westerners should remember to treat others as individuals as well, even those who don't always view themselves as such. It is therefore refreshing to see reports of Israeli students in Haifa, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem protesting the atrocities their government is committing in Gaza.
Of course, there were protesters protesting the protester, shouting things like, "Take their identification cards away," and they more typified the (ironically) fascist Israel that has formed under the Star of David.
[Ed.: Replace the star with an ugly little swastika and the mood looks oddly familiar.]
