“the conflict is about two groups each claiming the same land as their homeland. Each side is attached to this place for national and religious reasons, and each side makes valid historical claims to support its case.”
What complete and utter garbage. This I/P conflict has got SFA to do with “two groups making claims”
The Palestinian people are not a ” group “. They including the Jews who lived in the land before the Zionist conspiracy took aim are the natives of the land. It was and is their homeland. It is not never was and never will be the “homeland ” of a foreign “group” whatever their origins and whatever their history including their conversion to Judaism history.
It does not presuppose expertise in rocket science to conclude that colonising Zionist Jews have zero “historical claims ” to another peoples land.
