"My Hebrew school showed us a map of Israel when I was 5. There were no lines to denote Palestine. When I first heard the word Palestine, I was told that they were terrorists who wanted to kill all Jews and take Israel for themselves. I was told the same about the West Bank and Gaza. I only learned that the occupation existed this year, having only heard about it as the six day war, where the IDF supposedly reclaimed land." -Gigi Levin, USY
