Just Another Dumb Middle East Correspondent

From Observer journalist Harriet Sherwood's goodbye to Gaza:

"This was my last trip to Gaza before returning to London to live and work. I moved to Jerusalem in May 2010, to report principally on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict... I arrived eager to learn more about what is frequently called the world's most intractable conflict, and to try to understand the powerful feelings of historical injustice on both sides." (Goodbye Gaza: our correspondent reflects on her time in the Middle East, 26/1/14)

To stop you there, Harriet. I'm mystified. Please tell us about the terrible historical injustice inflicted upon Israelis by Palestinians.
