"Messages and posts that blame everything on Israel while not addressing Palestinian (and Islamic terror) are silly, one-sided and hateful. " - Curious Palestinian terrorism, while heinous, doesn't measure up to the state terrorism, ethnic cleansing and brutality that Israel practices against the Palestinian people and that are at the core of the conflict. Israeli state terror has resulted in far more people killed, including children (about 6 Palestinian children were killed by the Israeli army for every Israeli child killed by Palestinians in the past 5 years) not to mention the thousands of Palestinian homes demolished and the ethnic cleansing of over 400 Palestinian towns and villages which resulted initially in about a million refugees (750,000 in 1948 and 200,000 in 1967). These refugees and their descendants now number in the millions, and are prevented by Israel from returning to their homes in violation of UN GA resolution 194 and basic human decency.
