Travelling in Palestine

I was interested in Dr Shaw's response1 to my essay, describing our family's personal experience of passing through an Israeli checkpoint.2 We did not simply have to ‘wave a British passport’.

I also made it clear that we have friends in both Palestine and Israel who are committed to a peaceful coexistence. As in all situations, the more individual contact there is between people of different backgrounds and cultures, and the more we question unhelpful stereotypes based on fear, the more hope there is for peace.
