Tell me, how can I seriously care about either of them when both sides are bloodthirsty religious morons? That's the reason why the conflict will never, ever end. It's hard to humanize people who incinerate children with white phosphorous or blow themselves up or mutilate the penises of babies. And they do it all for their gods.
Nobody would ever guess that both the Zionist movement and the PLO have their foundations in socialist secularism. No nationalist sentiment involved, no competition for resources, no longstanding history of grievances - all it's about is what you're obsessed with, and nothing else. If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
And before anyone mentions Jews and Palestinians who are peace activists, that's not really evidence. They're not really doing anything concrete to solve the conflict, they're just trying to feel better about themselves before going back to business as usual.
Forgive me, but as we've no idea what you mean by "doing anything concrete to solve the conflict," then it is hard to fathom what might count as evidence if you don't like it. And we can forget about the longrunning disputes between peoples of the same denomination, or between one atheist government and another, for they are supposed to have seen the light and abandoned the "bloodthirsty" ways of religion. They just can't have happened.
Israelis enjoys terrorizing Palestinians and have zero historical self-awareness.
You've picked a good example to illustrate your point; Rabbi Ascherman, being Israeli, must clearly enjoy terrorizing Palestinians. As for a lack of historical awareness with any meaning, as a historian, it's not the Palestinians I'm looking at here.
@ Nomen Nescio
I've always wondered why it is that, when two peoples are subject to brutalization, one is expected to be brutalized and the other expected to have higher moral standards than anyone else.
You, sir, are a mensch.
