"We've had two intifadas as they’ve been called and they’ve been two very different kinds of events. One was a popular uprising and civil society was in the lead. It was for the most part nonviolent. The second what we call 'intifada' that started in the year 2000 was an armed conflict between the Israeli Military and the Palestinian side. If you didn’t know how to shoot a gun in the second intifada you sat home and watched it on TV like I did."
