“No I’m NOT a Muslim.
I’m a Jew,” she said.
“I was raised by Jews in Jerusalem, and I feel like I’m still a Jew.
I’ve lived my whole life in Jerusalem and it feels like I still have to be here.”
When asked whether she feels that there are any similarities between her and her Muslim cousins, the former student said: “I don’t feel that way at all.
“When you look at the differences, they are very much different, but they are all Muslims.””
The students said that their family history of the Holocaust was a huge factor in their understanding of the conflict and the meaning of the name of the Islamic State.”

The students said that their family history of the Holocaust was a huge factor in their understanding of the conflict and the meaning of the name of the Islamic State.
The Jewish students also said they feel a sense of guilt about being involved in the conflict in the first place, which they said was “very much part of the history of Zionism”.
They also said the recent rise of the far-right Israeli political party, which seeks to restore Israeli sovereignty over the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, has affected their sense of identity.
While they felt that the two groups are “all very much alike”, they added that they felt they were not “exactly” on the same page.
“We know that the Muslims, who are not very far from the Jewish side of the border, are very different from the Muslims who are very close to the Jewish one, because they are Muslim,” said the student.
“But I feel that the differences between the two communities are very, very small.”
The group, which includes more than a dozen former Israeli military officers, said that they had been told that the current Israeli government is “more pro-Israeli” than their former government.
“I think this government is a bit too pro-Israel, but it doesn’t make any difference,” the group said.
The group said that while it would like to see a “peace agreement” with the Palestinian Authority (PA), they believe that a “no-confidence” vote would be required to stop the Palestinian leadership from continuing the talks.
In a separate interview, another former student, whose identity is unknown, also told Al Jazeera that he felt a “sense of betrayal” after Israel withdrew from the UN in the wake of the Gaza conflict.
“What I’m seeing is the Israeli government, who came to power in 2000, did the right thing by disengaging from the Palestinian territories, but we are still under occupation,” he said.
“So, we are the enemy of the Palestinian people.”
