And I hope you're right that they're the ones who start it too, because neither of us want to see Israel as the 'villain'.
If by "Palestinians" you mean muslim Arabs, then yes. Note then plenty of the so-called "Palestinians" are muslim Arab immigrant who come from outside the area of Palestine.
And Israel seen as a villain? You can bet that the Western media who have swallowed the muslim antisemitic propaganda hook line and sinker, will see to that. No matter what.
