eh both sides have extremists... its decently unsolvable. however israel needs to stop building settlements, palestinian leadership both PA and Hamas needs to get there shit together and not be so corrupt. palestinians living on the israeli side have more rights than palestinians living in the west bank and especially gaza. israel treats palestinians in jerusalem as full citizens; access to schools, medical care, and even sewage/sanitation is something that many palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank don't enjoy, because Hamas is corrupt as shit and they use their citizens as tools to blame their situation on Israeli oppression. the palestinian authority likes to steal humanitarian funds and allow disgusting inequality in the West Bank. however, Israel's current right-wing government under Netanyahu does some pretty inadvisable (read: horrible) things, such as the boycott/isolation of Gaza's economy, and its understandable that many palestinians are pissed off as shit about that. yet, launching rockets does no good for either side, as Israel's military prowess far exceeds anything Hamas is capable of. Hamas gets a pity party from the world because they know Israel has to retaliate to stop rockets from getting fired, and Gaza has such a high population density that of course civilians are going to get killed. Israel has enough military technology to ensure minimal israeli civilian deaths, so obviously they are in a delicate situation. the rest of the Arab world isn't so kind to palestinians either - Egypt maintains the same boycott/border control of Gaza that Israel does. Syria is sorta fucked so let's skip that for a second, but Jordan and Lebanon won't even let palestinians immigrate. They're clearly getting the short end of the stick from all sides, so let's not just point the finger at Israel. the fact is, the average palestinian and israeli citizen couldnt really give a fuck about the religious bullshit, theyre torn by extremists on both sides. Moral of the story, no peace will come until extremist-terrorist groups like Hamas are not the voice of the palestinians, and extremists like Netanyahu are not leading the Israelis. a middle ground can be found, we just need more moderate leadership on both sides.
oh yah - to the people who say Jews took the Palestinians land - let's look at that argument. Hmm - I wonder who's land North America is? before you say Jews need to give their land back to palestinian's, let's give North America back to the Natives? The british/french/spanish were genocidal maniacs in the 17th/18th/19th centuries comparied to the last 70 odd years of Israel.
