If you put all the players on a moral scale, generally speaking the Islamists are the absolute worst. No doubt about it. Killing and torturing them is still wrong. And ineffective. The religious memes have this little feature called martyrdom. Killing a few make the meme stronger. You need to go after the meme.
Palestinians hate Zionism for legitimate reasons. They want to destroy Israel for legitimate reasons. They are clearly losing the struggle and should take a different approach.
Israel is a belligerent, entitled bully just like the US but for different reasons.
So you can tinker all day with the moral scale but from where I stand, Israel and Palestinians are pretty close to each other. Murderers that will stop at nothing and have gone to the dark side, never to return. Divest Israel, speak out, withdraw consent, reject the propaganda coming from AIPAC and the media. If Zionism withers and dies, the world will be safer and more human. Islam the virulent meme is also high on the threat list for the human race. They are in the same category with Zionism IMO.

No worries, there is a hole where you can place your head if you choose to ignore all the facts and just cherry pick the ones you like the best.
