If anything is unfair and we're propagating it, then it would be up to our governments to change it. Not to Palestinians. Watto, you're still glossing over the why. This perception that the Palestinians don't have any self determination and/or aren't capable of controlling their own path forward is the exact opposite of how the world works. You're absolutely correct, the Palestinians can wait around for other nations to do something instead of improving themselves. They can sit around and bemoan about how things aren't fair. About how the rest of the civilized world picks Israel's side over them. About how the UN keeps passing meaningless resolutions without actually helping the plight of the Palestinians themselves. Except that none of that is the productive way forward. All that whining and 5 Euros will get you a cup of coffee. If our governments wanted to, we could all change who we support. The US and the EU could lift the trade restrictions against the Palestinian ruling party tomorrow. But we aren't going to. A country like Germany can publicly condemn illegal Jewish settlements all day long, but its just lip service. The German government is still going to sell submarines to Israel that are going to be used to sink Palestinian smuggling ships, because the Palestinians don't play nice with anyone else besides say Iran, Syria, ie..the collective "bad guys...." Israel is a strong democratic and economic power in the region. The Palestinians are a great big ball of suckatude that's lead by an internationally recognized terrorist organization and has no economy to speak of. This is because they're trapped in a self destructive revenge mentality. I don't know. It's fairly obvious on which side any half-way intelligent country would hedge its bets for. At this point in time, it's more likely that the EU would start trading with Zimbabwe than the Palestinian Authority, and that says A LOT right there.
