It is amazing.
This young woman new exactly what she was doing. Give her the credit. There was no surpise but there was plenty of fear. She stood on principles and
nonviolence. She stated her case to the enemy without threat. She would not be ignored. She was not running from the bullets in the soldiers gun. She
was blocking his view, offering herself as the target!
She was also not screaming hatred or inciting violence. Contrast her act of protest to the opening with men jumping up and down chanting and hanging
onto the barbed wire. Agressive and confrontational.
There is a fine line between bravery and stupidity and she definitely fell on the bravery side.
As for you soldier bashers... Bleh
The young men are also human beings with families, friends, feelings, parents, possibly ones that were killed by palestinian suicide bombers, or Hamas
rockets. They were in the same moral quandry most of us would be in, and they unlike some of you, made a moral and human decision. Which disproves
your theories of them being mindless barbaric killers.
All three of these people should be commended for doing something that their respective governments can't seem to accomplish. Simple HUMAN
