I've decided to close comments on this video. Apologies to those who share interesting comments but the idiots outnumber you 5 to 1 and I don't want to subject viewers to rummaging through a rubbish dump to find them.

I don't pretend to have all the solutions but it begins by both sides being honest and having empathy.

See my main page for links to organisations that provide humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people.

"Animals. Animals. Like the Discovery Channel. All of Ramallah is a jungle. There are monkeys, dogs, gorillas. The problem is that the animals are locked they can't come out. We're humans. They're animals. They aren't humans we are."
- Israeli border police (you can find at 5:03 of this video)

"We let them suffer, in the sun, in the rain, that's it. That's what I wanted to say. Let the whole world know."
- Israeli border police

"When the Palestinians come...we put on our show."
- Israeli border police

"Nobody knows about us here. Nobody in the world." - Palestinian businessman

"Look at what they do to us, do to our children. Look!" - Mother with two children

"Food for my wife, Christmas tomorrow. Meal for my family! I'll be back in the morning!" - Elderly Palestinian man

'Soon shall we spew forth this frail spirit. Meanwhile, so long as we draw breath...let us cherish humanity. Let us not cause fear to any man, nor danger; let us scorn losses, wrongs, abuse, and taunts, and let us endure with heroic mind our short-lived ills. While we are looking back, as they say, and turning around, straightway death will be upon us.'

- Seneca, On Anger
