Um, just a few notes @SpukiKitty if I may...
"Unfortunately there were already people living in that land, a country called Palestine, at the time. It was a huge mess!"
-> err, Palestine never was a country. It was a British mandate area, which was in 1948 divided between Israel, Jordan (who took over the West Bank) and Egypt (who got Gaza).
"While I do agree that the Israelis treat the Palestinians like crap and the founding of modern Israel was done in a supremely stupid fashion I still think that you are a giant antisemitic barf-bag!"
Here I would partly agree, but also partly disagree with you. I'd say that you're making a blanket, general statement ('Israelis treat the Palestinians like crap') which is not true, but I've seen more than enough of you here to know you didn't mean to imply what you technically said.
I just feel I should tell you this, as such statements aren't really helpful, and I think we should be more mindful of what we say.
I do agree that the founding of Israel was done in a problematic fashion, certainly. Though I'd also add that the events of that time are hardly the Israelis' fault alone.
"Could they gone ahead with the Israel thing but be diplomatic with Palestine, regard Palestine as "hosts" rather than "something to conquer", making an agreement with the Palestinians to allow the Israelis to settle as refugee-immigrants, stressing they are equals and giving the country dual names ('Palestine' & 'Israel' or 'Palestine-Israel')? Of course!"
Now I'm no expert on the history of the area, but what you're saying here doesn't strike me as quite correct. Thing is, Jews started coming there quite a while before 1948, and most of them obtained their land through entirely legitimate means. Also, what you didn't mention is that none of the surrounding Arab countries - nor the Palestinians themselves - were willing to accept the creation of Israel in any circumstance, and they all declared war as soon as it was done.
The naming thing is interesting... I read somewhere (not sure where exactly) that at the time of Israel's founding, alternative ideas for the country's name in Arabic were seriously considered, including calling it Palestine. But it didn't come to pass, in the end.
"But they didn't do it that way, because the Military-Industrial complex is a greedy mamma-jamma and doing stuff like Eris or a demented sea turtle guarantees future clams to be make at the expense of people! Why else to you think the borders of today's Mid-East & Africa were drawn with no thought of tribal & ethnic relations?"
Um, I don't think the military-industrial complex had much with the founding of Israel... or the drawing of the Middle East and Africa's borders. Though the latter was certainly a result of imperial/colonial interests.
But all in all, I already mentioned I'm no expert on the subject. And I'm not saying these things to pick a fight or spew propaganda - Lord FSM knows there's enough of that, especially on the subject of Israel/Palestine. It's just that I feel that things are a bit more complicated than you imply, and that generally people should look at the situation there with cooler heads. After all, in a way there's no rush - that mess will unfortunately keep boiling for years to come... it'll take long-term and well-thought-out action to change things there; it can't be solved in a single stroke.
So yeah, I hope you won't hate me for this. To paraphrase one of the more memorable lines from Mass Effect (by a synthetic hive mind race, of all things): "I wish to understand, not to incite." :)
EDIT: Oh, also, I used to hold more or less the same views regarding Israel/Palestine as you did. Then it was pointed out to me that things weren't quite as I thought...
By this I don't mean to be condescending; rather, just to say that I understand where you're coming from.
