His Excellency Generalissimo

Note: This thread is not for discussing the actual conflict
There are no shortage of issues that divide Americans, the Israel-Palestine conflict is one such issue. How such a tiny strip of land with no fucking oil can cause such a firestorm is complicated. However this is not a thread to discuss the issue itself this is the thread to point and laugh at the spergs who argue over this. More amusingly even professors and academics are not immune from sperging. The current debate is between the "New Historians" (Israeli historians who believe that Israel's history isn't as pure as once thought) and the regular Historians (historians who believe that while Israel isn't perfect the new historians are distorting information) both will argue with each other over trivial things. For example, a small scrap of David Ben-Gurion's diary which mentioned Palestians generated a huge fight over whether or not he actually wanted to remove kebab. The argument stemmed over some crossed out words in the diary that some claimed said he did not want to remove kebab others said it didn't matter as he still wanted to remove them.
On the subject of the average internet users, the story is much the same but much more sperging. Mention the word "Israel" and you'll guarantee a slapfight. Trying to explain things in a neutral way will just make things worse. Naturally even wikipedia isn't immune to infighting, with everyone claiming bias one way or another. Some people claim Hamas dindu nuffin while others [URL=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Dershowitz]claim Israel dindu nuffin.
One thing Israel and Palestine have in common is their ability to generate autism.
List of Slapfights:
Israel side: https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org - note that is may be pretty biased but it's well organized and pretty to look at I guess. Lots of documents too.
Palestine side: http://www.palestineremembered.com - no doubt biased too but it isn't run by a (((jewish pac)))
http://mideastweb.org - I think this website is pretty good. Lists a lot of books from both sides of the argument and even suggests reading both sides before coming to a conclusion. Contains links to both Israel and Palestinian/Arab sources and sites. Sadly the founder passed away in 2011 or 13 so I can't guarantee it's entirely up to date.
http://www.themedialine.org - claims to be fact based news and seems like it tbh. Though they also talk about (((fake news)))
https://www.reddit.com/r/IsraelPalestine/ - despite claiming to be a civil discussion it usually ends up as autistic slapfight. Also one of the more active mods is very pro-palestinian.[/URL]
