Palestinian youth

Really profound and tragic look into the minds of Palestinian youth, from NYTimes.

Their worried parents call them the lost generation of Palestine: its most radical, most accepting of violence and most despairing. They are the children of the second intifada, which began in 2000, growing up in a territory riven by infighting, seared by violence, occupied by Israel, largely cut off from the world and segmented by barriers and checkpoints.To hear these young people talk is to listen in on budding nihilism and a loss of hope.
Read the whole thing. Heart breaking and not good news for any future hope for a resolution to the conflict.
