What you say is true based on what we've been told by our media (propaganda?). What I know is that what started in the 50s was a clash between 2 systems. Without an understanding of that history, we can't subjectively look at the issue and find a common ground and eventually a resolution. That is why the US and Israel, etc can't find peace without a clear win/loss scenario (WWII and Vietnam as prime examples).
