My experience in Israel: It is not what you see on TV – People do want peace on both sides. We just have to move beyond those who incite terrorism. | The Jerusalem Post
I recently traveled to Israel as part of a study abroad program through the American University in Washington, DC. As a master’s student concentrating on peace and conflict resolution and as a Kurd from northern Iraq, I was curious about the intense hostility toward Jews in the Middle East, the negative bias in the mainstream media and the continuous antisemitic lectures and activities on college campuses, including my own university.
