There is an agglomeration of myths that prevail when it comes to the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Passionate observers through the years have bought into a plethora of falsehoods. The first of these being that the obstacle to peace has always been Israel. The second being that the Palestinian cause is one of heroic revanchism. The third being that the Israelis are uniquely depraved and that Palestinians are, in all circumstances, their victims. Finally, there’s the argument that any disparity in the death count makes Israel the antagonist.
