Initially yes. The way the Zionists used the English and then the US as help them steal the land by deception was terrible. The Palestinians were absolutely betrayed by the Zionist’s and the west.There’s only one side who’s been hard done by here.
And it ain’t Israel
You also have to consider where the Zionist’s were coming from. Constant persecution, talking state backed Pogroms that would happen regularly. The Zionist’s used thier political power during WW1 to their advantage to set up a place in the Middle East they could call their own (ironically in a place that fought alongside the British). So they start to set up a few small farms and whatever. Fast forward a few years and Hitler starts killing every Jewish person he can. It’s kind of hard to blame them for trying to create a safe place.
But people both sides have done so much evil shit now that none of that history really matters. You try convincing an Israeli that they are just as bad as the Palestinian when his daughters have just been blown up on a bus. Or the Palestinian that the Israelis are just trying to protect themselves when they see drones randomly flying over and indiscriminately dropping bombs on their neighbors.
The situation is so f’ed up. Generations of hatred and cold blooded murder.
