    Billions of sacrificial aid from western countries have been hospitably placed in the laps of Palestinians over the decades with the best of goodwill and they have only pennies remaining to show for it, with no measurable improvement in their conditions. If the Israelis were the stewards of that money for the Palestinians instead of their corrupt leaders, they would have been living in good housing and having great services provided for them with not even a dollar left over for unneeded weaponry. Even if they desired a State after all of that, the Israelis again would be the Palestinians best friend in establishing one in peace and security. Alas, the violence prone PA leadership with their false pride and dogma steeped in historical and spiritual revisionism continually brainwash their people to become martyrs for a lost, militant cause. The black cloud following them around and casting gloomy shadows in their forecast is mostly self-seeded. Israel has not been perfect but that's mostly because of their weariness and sometimes short-temper of having to constantly deal with the trauma of this ongoing conflict. Approach them in true peace and reconciliation and watch the Israelis pour out their hearts and help with the warmest acts of assistance.
