From the Palestinian point of view, Israel is invading on what little land they have left by building more and more illegal settlements and bypass roads, taking virtually all of their water, bulldozing homes, destroying olive groves, and engaging in endless humiliation rituals at road blocks. During the current occupation by the Israelis, Palestinians experience little to no self-determination and are at the mercy of what they see as changeable acts of state sponsored terror including random arrests, beatings, killings, curfews and collective punishment. All Palestinians living in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza have been affected by these acts. Everyone has a brother, father, mother, husband, wife or child that has been killed, wounded, or died for lack of medical care. Everyone knows a family whose home has been demolished or ancient olive grove uprooted.
