I'm not pro-Israel, I'm someone who feels they can no longer "excuse" Palestinian atrocities.
Israel has calmed down and is acting more or less ok at the moment, I give it credit for that. Frankly, I can't remember a time when Palestine did, apart from that brief window when the PLO came back from Tunisia.
As for the re-hashing of old atrocities, in that way lies madness. It has to stop. No good can come of it.
And you seem to forget that Israel is Israel, there are no "native" guys against invaders here, that is the tragedy.
