that's true, but I will always support Israel as the only bastion of hope for the middle east, as history and current events have proven that the surrounding arabic countries do not need Israel as an excuse for violence, it exists there by default
It is well documented that Israel supported HAMAS to undermine the more moderate PLO/FATAH in Gaza.
Israel wanted Islamic extremism to grow so they would battle against secularism instead of fighting Israel.
Then it helped HAMAS win so they could paint the Palestinians as all being extremists and harm them diplomatically. Israel used HAMAS to pretend it faces a existential struggle. When it is a Golem of its own creation. Just like how the USA supported al-Qaeda.
Israel has a long history of encouraging extremism...
How else can you claim perpetual victimhood?
