I hate everything

I've been getting called an anti-Semite a lot lately and goodness knows such a serious accusation must be true. But it seems to me that even if you didn't know anything else about the Israel-Palestine conflict -- even if you didn't know the political history of the region in the 20th century, didn't know the results of the various military conflicts, didn't know the details of the alliances and entanglements, didn't know anything about the combatants, didn't have a single idea about the way that Palestinians have to live under occupation -- even if you didn't know any of that stuff, you might get a pretty good idea about what's going on over there with only one tiny sliver of information: in the most recent conflict between the disputants, the ratio of casualties was 110:1 in favor of the state actor.

Or, I dunno, maybe not. People are flipping their shit over Barack Obama having even suggested that someone should do something to help the people of Palestine, so obviously I'm missing something really obvious about the whole conflict.
