The Israeli Palestinian problem is one of the central issues of modern times. The Jewish problem and the Palestinian problem are in the hearts of billions of people and both are universal in their nature. So you ar argument about why focus on this issue when we have so many other urgent issues misses this crucial point. This is typical of people defending Israel since they want the world to turn the attention away from occupation, land confiscation, the wall, and all sort of other issues that plague the state of Israel since its inception. The question, in a nutshell, we have the victim(Jews) and we have the victim of the victim(Palestinians) which makes it one the most interesting episodes in human tragedy. I have many Palestinian students who have been denied any type of citizenship and live in refugee camps in Gaza, West Bank , and Lebanon. The victim(Israelis) are spending a huge amount of efforts to cover up their involvement in the fate of the (victim)^2.
