    Islamic and Jewish fundamentalists are the bad guys...

    Well the thing started when Jews wanted to come back to their "promised land" by God and they kicked out most of the population that lived in that land (few remained, some have sold I know), well the Palestinians back then were so much uneducated were fooled by Arabian princes who only wanted money and sex. They worked with the British so long to miss up Palestine, Lebanon, Egypt and Syria who were stupidly following the day's Arab nationalist movement. Palestinians were later a doll for the USSR to mess up US supported capitalist Israel, because they were hopeless and wanted a supporter so all the bad guys flocked to them which messed up their view to the world. Later, after USSR fell, many Palestinian communists suddenly turned into Islamists who again started saying God stuff. So the thing is, without racism and religious fundamentalism things will be fine :D ... As people, Palestinians and Israelis are very close in terms of ancestry and culture. So one day when all this bs goes away, we can probably be friends and live together peacefully :D

    Israel is a terrorist country, funded solely by the US itself. They beat and murder the inhabitants of the Gaza strip and bordering Palestinian cities. And, whoever claimed that Israel is historic and Palestine wasn't there ti begin with, go **** yourself!

    I would say Palestinians are the good guys.

    Here's quick simple explanation for why I think that :

    Before the 8th century AD, Romans had control of the holly land of Jeruselam. Roman rule wasn't a good one. They killed many Jews and many Christians. From the 8th century to the 20th century, after Jerusalem was under the control of Muslims, everyone could live peacefully in the holy land. And people of all 3 religons could easily come to Jerusalem for pilgrimage. But then in 1948 Jews come over, steal Palestinian lands, kill many innocent people and make their own new country.

    It's really obvious who're the good people and who're the bad.

    On one hand you have people who have been living peacefully on these lands and allowed everyone to practice their Religion freely, and on the other hand you have people who have stolen lands and killed many to make their own country.

    There are both good palestinians and bad palestinians. The people who run it, i.e. Hamas, are definitely bad. They are recognised as a terrorist organisation by pretty much everyone, and that speaks for itself. I would also consider any palestinian who votes for this terrorist regime as a 'bad guy'. However, the ones who don't are the good guys and these are the ones who actually want peace. Anyone who votes for Hamas knows that there will never be peace with them in charge and therefore only wants the destruction of Israel.

    @SAMP player You completely fail to acknowledge the fact that the only reason there is violence and fighting there at the moment is because the arabs attacked Israel. There was none when it was controlled by Muslims because no one was attacking it. Therefore, you can't say that Israel is in any way causing the violence because it blatantly isn't.

    @ryan Palestinians are the ones killing innocent children, women and men of all ages. In fact, they target schools. On the other hand, the IDF strives to only kill terrorists and has one of the lowest civilian kills to terrorist kills ratios ever. Stop being an idiot.

    Like any other group, there are good guys and bad guys. National groups by themselves are inherently neutral; only individuals can be characteristically "good" or "bad," and then depending only on your perspective. Palestinians are just the native inhabitants of Palestine. Historically, the term could have described any person native to Palestine (especially during the Mandate period), but more recently has been narrowed to just the native Arab population from Palestine. Like Israeli Jews, they claim Palestine/Israel as their ancestral homeland.

    Well, when they are strapping bombs to their children, and telling them to go murder mothers who are walking their children through the market to buy food for their dinner, they are the bad guys.

    When they know that they have an illegal arms stockpile, and they put it in a hospital, and surround it by their own children, and old people, so that they will be killed when the IDF bombs their illegal weapons stores, they are the bad guys.

    When they refuse to give first aid to their own people so that their death count will go up, making the IDF look bad, they are the bad guys.

    When they voluntarily leave their homes, then whine because the Israelis "stole" their homes, they are the bad guys.

    the bad guys are really the anti-semitic europeans and the other scum of the world, they have now cornered the Jews to Israel and are hoping the Muslims finish what they started

    I hope they get the payback they deserve
