"Then the other thing is you meet these Palestinians. We have one friend who went to grad school at Cornell and his friend went to Oxford. They're completely educated, they're just like us, and so you see what Jim Crow was like, or apartheid, the way they're treated. Because they can only drive on certain roads and you have to drive the long way round all these checkpoints just because only Israelis can go on the roads. (...)
"Then he drove us by these big old Arab houses in Jerusalem. 'Oh, that's where my family used to live.' Before they were kicked out by Jews. Then you go to his new neighborhood and there are these houses with Israeli flags all over the outside and settlers have thrown out a Palestinian family. And our friend has a nice house but one day they woke up and there were bulldozers in the back yard. The Israeli government needed more land for a road for the settlers, so they just took it. There's no process for the Palestinians, no appeal.
"They say it's complicated, but it's not. It's actually really simple."
