My intention is to communicate info on the plight of Refugees inside of Israel in hopes it may help us better understand the violence.
“The number of registered Palestine refugees has subsequently grown from 914,000 in 1950 to more than 4.6 million in 2008”. These United Nations’ numbers calculate a 502% Palestinian Refugee population increase in 58 years in and out of Israel.
Refugees have no country, no passport, can’t vote, no rights, etc. Many are used as low income labor.

Inside Israel’s borders, refugee camps have operated for 58 years. There are Refugee camps in Gaza, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Nazareth, etc. These camps aren't tents, they're mini cities of buildings like the low income "projects" in the USA, where they can't come and go as they please. The Refugee buildings in the background of newscasts are inside restricted areas inside Israel. "Containment" is done via walls, a high tech military and bulldozers.
If you were a 20 year old woman, born and raised in a Refugee camp, would you want to have children?
Could the violence be like our Watts and "Rodney King" riots?
What do you do with 4.6 million Refugees?
I see under reporting in the news of this unique Refugee situation. I was mislead to believe terrorism is due only to religious fanatics, where "if the religious fanatics would just stop, everything would be ok". No mention of the abused Refugees. I believe communicating this info will help us see both sides and understand better.
Here are pictures of 15 women, who used terrorism. Several were suicde bombers. www.mfa.gov.il/MFA/MFAArchive/2000_2009/2003/1/The%20Role%20of%20Pa...
Many years ago I toured Israel for 2 months and worked on a Kibbutz. It’s a quick side tour from Egypt or Greece. To see the segregation walls, green lines, Refugee camps, etc. (or info on the internet of this) you need dig a little.

11/09/2008 Thousands of Israelis from across the country gathered in front of the Tel Aviv city hall on Saturday evening to commemorate and pay respects to beloved leader Yitzak Rabin. Participants filled Rabin Square and spilled into the surrounding streets, carrying signs and banners calling for peace and tolerance. Rabin was gunned down on Nov. 4, 1995, at the end of a peace rally by right-wing (Jewish) extremist Yigal Amir, an opponent of his (Yitzak Rabin's) policy of making peace with the Palestinians. www.infolive.tv/en/infolive.tv-32187-israelnews-barak-slams-right-w...

While traveling in Hebron, Israel I visited the Tomb of the Patriarchs. The Patriarch Abraham is common to
Jews, Muslims and Christians. No lie, in 1984 the Tomb segragated visiting hours by religion! i.e. 8-9am Jew,
9-10am Islam, 10-11am Christian. I wonder how many times he's turned over in his tomb.
