The closest you came to giving recognition to the truth was crediting the piece as a ‘pretty good description of the situation.’ Despite that your commentary is strikingly similar to Trump’s Charlottesville line, ‘blame on BOTH sides’. How in the name of normality and decency can any sane person read the history of the Palestinian/Israel ‘conflict’ and not be blown away by the sheer depth and breadth of criminality that the Palestinian people have been subjected to.
You stated “The killings that took place once again are a reminder there is a need for peace.” The killings were cold blooded murders that happened during the protests which themselves are a reminder of the need for justice. Ironically, your last sentence: “Somehow all involved parties should be brought together to finally put an end to this horrible situation that has been going on much too long”, would also be very applicable if it were addressed to the two major parties in the US and their behavior over the past half century.
The role of the US and the failure of any peace process is as obvious as a solar eclipse. The documentary record on the middle east is not lacking, with Noam Chomsky alone a huge repository on the subject. And besides the printed material there’s the expediency of the digital age. The reality is out there to be known.
