It's very important for us to stay balanced while we're making this documentary though and not get too sympathetic to one side.
As we drove into the Palestinian West Bank it felt kind of weird to be somewhere that has featured so much in the news.
I think they are mainly in the Gaza strip area. We're not going there - it's a bit far away and also too dangerous at the moment. We're looking for children's opinions - not battlegrounds!
Just wrapped - in our business that means finished - day one. On the way back from the West Bank we had to go through a vehicle checkpoint. There were lots of Israeli soldiers around with guns.
It's a very intimidating atmosphere. Some of them can't be more than 17 or 18. They do shifts of standing for 10 hours in the hot sun checking cars.
They all run the risk of being blown up by a terrorist bomb, or caught in crossfire if fighting breaks out. It's not a pleasant job.

Phew, an early start this morning! It's only breakfast time and we've already done two hours work.
We went up to a famous viewpoint over Jerusalem to record a piece to camera that will go at the end of our Extra. The viewpoint is up a hill called the Mount of Olives.
It was an unbelievably beautiful view and also really thought-provoking. It's so sad that somewhere so famous across the world for being so central to some of the major religions, is also the site of so much trouble.
Stopped for lunch. We've been told by the BBC safety experts not to go to restaurants or bars in Jerusalem because of the risk of a Palestinian suicide bomb.
But our Israeli helper has taken us to a safe area and we are sitting well away from the entrance, which is supposed to be less dangerous.
The food is lovely out here! Loads of fresh salad and seafood and nice cheeses and yummy dips! I miss English tea so much though - I must remember to bring some teabags next time I go abroad!
Just finished day two. Exhausted. This afternoon we interviewed an Israeli boy who was badly injured by a Palestinian suicide bomb on his school bus.
It only happened a few months ago so he was still pretty upset about it. The interview was really sad because the boy's uncle was also killed by a suicide bomber.
So he really doesn't like or trust Palestinians. It's upsetting to hear such strong views but kind of understandable considering what he's been through.
