25-01-2004 10:52I received this account from a friend of mine living in Nablus. She and I are both Jewish and are increasingly appalled at the way in which the Army perpetuates the cycle of violence. Out of these 100s of traumatised victims, I wonder how many got to the end of the day and thought 'We must have understanding for the Jewish people, and maybe not all Israelis are soldiers, maybe some are normal people'?

But I hope ridiculously that these miracles somehow happen.
