In 1937, the Peel commission of 1937 rejigged the Palestinian puzzle by splitting Palestine a further two ways (after creating a state for the Hashemite prince Abdullah in Jordan, as a thank you from the British for their support against the Ottoman Turks in WWI) between the remaining Arabs of Palestine and the Jews. ....

I recommend reading books as the best and perhaps the only way to come to an equitable understanding of this subject.
For example: to understand the conflict between Israel and Palestine requires not simply the historical purview of Zionist excursions into the levant in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but also a knowledge of a peripheral subject like Islamism. Seeing that Islamism is the main impediment towards peace (and by Islamism, is not simply meant "political Islam", but more specifically an Islam that fosters a manichean division of the world into "good" and "evil". In short, Islam will need to protestantize itself in order to work within the modern system. ) until Islamism is eliminated, peace will never materialize, neither with Israel nor it's non-Muslim neighbours.
Anyone who supports the Arab narrative against Israel unknowingly advances this backward agenda against progress in the Islamic world. Thus, a wider understanding of the region and its players helps inform not only morality, but practical policy.
As for good books you can read. I recommend for a history of the Israel-Palestine conflict: From Time immemorial, by joan peters; 1948, a history of the first Arab-Israeli war, by Benny Morris, for an analysis of the original conflict; 6 days of war, by Michael Oren, for a history of the 6 day war; The Yom Kippur War, by Abraham Rabinovich, for a history of the 1973 October war; as for the Islamist issue: a basic primer into the subject is Daniel Pipes 'In the Path of God: Islam and political power'; another book which delves deeper into the conundrum between Islam and modernity is Robert R. Reilly's "The Closing of the Muslim Mind: How intellectual suicide created the modern Islamist crisis'.

All the pro Zionist rhetoric fails miserably with simply a picture of Disappearing Palestinian
territory and Growing Israeli territory.
All the BS about who has right year .........means absolutely nothing.
Israeli Zionists and their puppets in the west actually think they will succeed in
erasing people from existence in modern age.
Well I got News for you
Cameras and DVDs are cheap, you can't alter the reality like in the 15th century
IF IT COMES DOWN TO IT, I WILL MAKE DVD COPIES and start handing it
out on the street to random people for free.
