“I don't know what to do.”
Back to the map... Just as if the UN granted half of say Virginia, or New York, to someone else, the people already living there completely rejected the idea. Now, before you think, “Yes, but the Jews have ancestoral ties to the land so they should go back”, think about the native Americans who considered the land where you now live to be theirs. Are willing to leave without compensation?
There are no easy answers but ignoring the history of how we got to this point guarantees that there will be no peace. Please educate yourself about the conflict—you could do worse than start on a page I created out of a talk I gave to a public speaking class 20 years ago: https://sweetandsour.org/timeforjustice/ You will see a bigger version of the map there.
A useful way to think about anything you hear about this conflict is to ask yourself: Would my view be different if the war in 1948 that established Israel had instead gone the other way and the populations were reversed? In other words, it was Jewish people in Gaza and the West Bank and a Palestinian government that controlled the rest—all of what we now call Israel plus effectively sealing in the 2.1 million people in Gaza (a little larger than double the size of D.C.) and also establishing Palestinian “settlements” for hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in a hypothetical Jewish West Bank.
In this alternative version of history, it is inconceivable to me that American politicians would be sending over $3 billion in military aid each year to a Palestinian government that bombs the Jewish people under its control and ... you get the idea.
I just wrote to Mr. Biden through the White House website asking that America demand a ceasefire and that we should not be offering blind support to Israel when its responses are so completely disproportionate. I get the sense that American public opinion may finally be shifting, in part because so many White Americans now have a much better understanding of the racist society in which Black Americans are forced to live… and by extension there are other groups that are suffering structural racism. Please be part of the change.
