Everyone is wrong about Israel-Palestine

• https://www.rt.com by Darius Shahtahmasebi

There are trillions of tonnes of recoverable gas lying underneath the disputed waters off Gaza, Israel, Syria and Lebanon. And the Israelis want to make sure they alone control and profit from it.

Few topics rile people up on both sides of the political aisle more than the Israel-Palestine question. It is without doubt one of the most – if not the most – explosively divisive issues on the planet.

For example, when I have criticised Saudi Arabia's criminal bombardment of Yemen, I have never once even contemplated fearing a backlash of people accusing me of being anti-Islamic or labelling me an Islamophobe. (Sure, Saudi nationals critical of its government's actions may have to avoid entering into their local Saudi consulate upon invitation, but that's for a different reason.)
