    Comparing Iran to the palestinian conflict is like trying to compare a car to a bicycle. The Iranian problem is a bike .. very few moving parts everybody knows how to make it work all you need to do is make the effort. The world knows diplomacy doesn't work on the Iranian front but nobody has the will to do what needs to be done and carry out airstrikes. The palestinian conflict is the car full of moving parts we don't understand. In Israel some people say give the palestinians anything they want, others say give them a state but on our terms and others say no state at all. The palestinians themselves are divided even in their own parties and the public themselves are divided on what to accept. Do we agree to a state in 22% of mandate Palestine, do we accept nothing less than the 1947 UN partition which gave us 45% or do we demand a single palestinian state to replace Israel. Right now they don't even have a single government because Abbas runs Judea & Samaria whilst Hamas runs Gaza. On the surface like a car its very easy just turn the key and make it work ( just create a palestinian state ) Try and understand how the car works thats another matter ( try work out how to create a palestinian state and you have problems )

Not every Israel critic is an Israel hater

Israel’s critics run the gamut from Jew-haters to people who have the country’s best interests in mind. Lumping all together as anti-Semites is a big mistake.
