Palestinians, regardless of the degree to which they practice their religion or if they are Muslim or Christian, are seeking to achieve statehood. People like you can use a multitude of reasons to imply that Israel should not end its occupation of the West Bank but the only valid ones are those that approximate to reality. The ultra-nationalists and religious extremists want to establish a greater Israel and the Netanyahu government has given them enormous leeway to proceed with their ambition. Meanwhile the Palestinians aspire to have their own homeland on their own land, not because of political Islam as you put it, but simply because they believe they should have their own state. 2-states for 2-people is the just solution for this conflict. Abbas has recognised this, Israel refuses to do so.
