Palestinian Youth Saves Settler Woman and Infant After Car Flips in West Bank

In the midst of violence, intolerance and darkness, humanity often shines through.

On June 9th a group of young Palestinians saved an Israeli settler and her four-month-old infant after her car flipped over on the main road in Tuqu village east of Bethlehem (click here to read the story).

This story presents a reality that differs from the normal styerotype of Israeli-Palestinian relations. By their actions, this young group of Palestinians reminds us that humanity has the power to overcome hatred. People are not born bloodthirsty and violent – most people care about life, morality and a prosperous future.

If there is one thing we should draw from stories like this, it is that there are good men and women everywhere, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not without hope.
