I found this really good article about Israel online on one of my fav websites:
Those who know me, will know that I'm fairly anti-Israel; however, this is fairly standard practise for anyone who's even slightly left-leaning at an NZ university. Importantly, then, I have NEVER been exposed to any information which could potentially change my viewpoints, and indeed, nor did I wish to. But this brilliant (albeit polemical) article has shed some light on my ignorance, and from now on, I will view the events in Gaza et al with a more informed view.
Hope it helps others too.
P.S: Excuse the poor sentence structure.
