Actually, everyone should learn *a lot* about the middle east before taking a side for (or against) Israel, Palestinians, etc.
The entire region was controlled by the Turks for 400 years. Muslims denying independence to Muslims. There were no political boundaries. Just "the arab territories."
Prince Faisal worked with the British to overthrow the Turks during WWI. He was rewarded with the area today known as Saudi Arabia. He wasn't elected by the people of that area.
Faisal was forced out by the house of Saud who did very little in the war against the Turks. Prince Saud wasn't elected by the people of that area. And, the British didn't do anything to restore the political dominion they gave Faisal.
Faisal was elected to lead Syria. But, the French didn't like it. They forced him out. His son (Abdullah) marched with men to resist the French. They were stopped by the British and he was given Trans Jordan. The people of that area didn't vote for him.
Meanwhile, King Faisal was exiled to England. A few years later the British installed him as king of Iraq. The people of that region didn't vote for him.
And then there are the Arab Emirates. How do you think those royal families came by their political fortunes? Nobody voted for them. In fact, Saddam had a legitimate argument that Kuwait belonged to Iraq. His complaint (that the British usurped the rightful ownership by giving it to a family as a political favor) was just as valid as the Palestinian complaint that nobody had the right to give their land to the Jews.
The entire region's history is of arbitrary political boundaries and appointments. The French and British were given "mandates" by the League of Nations (predecessor to the United Nations) to administer the area and essentially create political boundaries (and rulers) that never existed.
Palestine was just another one. Jews already lived there, buying their land when there were huge influxes during the Russian pograms of the late 1800s and early 1900s.
The British (Balfour) proposed a partitioned Palestine. Even King Faisal even approved of it. (He later rejected it, perhaps because the British didn't help him against the House of Saud.). The League of Nations accepted it. And, the United Nations accepted it.
Everyone accepted it... except the Palestinians (who were under Jordanian rule, and Jordan's King Abdullah had no intention of granting them statehood, nor Jordanians generally the right to vote him out of office).
For 25 years Jews essentially had no willing partner to accept the internationally-agreed "dual state." On May 14, 1948 the British "Mandate" expired. On that day, there was no one to administer the area of Palestine. No government.
Jews had no choice but to unilaterally accept the international agreement, or essentially live without government. This was *after* 25 years of Jews immigrating there because of the international agreement.
Like so many things in life, the only way to resolve the conflict was through war. The Jews won. And, the Palestinians attacked them 3 more times over the following 20 years. (Inviting their neighbors onto their land to help the attack.).
So, Palestinians can't accept that they gambled and lost. They rejected the international plan. They resorted to war. Lost. Lost three more times. But, all we hear is how they're denied
the statehood they rejected
for 90 years.
It's like they want an endless opportunity for "do overs." Forget that they rejected the international plan. Forget that they resorted to war 3-4 times (and lost). They just keep saying their denied what most of the muslim mid-east world is denied (self-determination) due to an arbitrarily-created political boundary (which describes most of the muslim mid-east). And, they reserve the right to use war -- which they've used a number of times and lost.
The whole thing is messed up. But, the only difference between Palestine and the rest of the mid-east is that it's no muslims oppressing muslims, denying self determination, etc. If Israel didn't exist, Palestinians would be under Jordanian control (as they were until 30 years ago), and denied "statehood" just like Jordanians are (having been placed under the control of Faisal's family).
