When on the other side, an absolute majority of the jews wholeheartedly, honestly and ready to die for believe that only 70 years they've corrected a great injustice done to them after 2000 years of suffering. And that they've been tremendously patient and humane towards those who actively stood and stand on their way to peace. I shit you not. It's real. Not seeing that pretty much says how far to the end of the spectrum you are on this ancient conflict. It's as part of reality as the story of the other identity, it's the fucking WINNING SIDE of a very unlikely thing to have happened.
But the great part, is that it doesn't really matters. Well, except as I said, showing them double standards a bit.
It's not only doesn't have too much to do with the solution if there even is one - it's counterproductive. There are 'scientific' (and I mark that because i never really read one not to mention tried to refute one, so i can't judge) works that will tell you that there never were a Palestinian people, it's just a new (if not to say passing) thing hence they're not entitled to shit, i bet they're at least as good as professional Holocaust deniers papers, and reading the headlines they're at least as plausible. But that's bullshit, right? Because there clearly are such a people now, no one can argue that. So arguing about this is clearly has NOTHING to do with solution, and not that's it should be a taboo (I grew to think that holocaust denial shouldn't be legally banned), but take it as my opinion that it's only means of further inciting the conflict, because a sense of entitlement is VERY HARD to argue rationally about. We can go on about it for pages and we'll reach the stage where you'll find yourself less informed, which is a no brainer since i fucking live here, and you'll remain angry still, and I'll feel as entitled to live where i do (and I only do so for 25 years, mind you) as when we started.
I can't exactly quote but IIRC it was C.Hitchens that said: The story of creation of Israel is as deplorable as talk and attempts to destroy it, will need to look it up after.
