I am conflicted on this subject. On one hand Palestinians are being very poorly treated, and in their own nation that situation might improve. On the other hand the groups that typically represent the loudest voice for Palestine are militants who are willing to kill innocent people to gain their freedom, which speaks poorly of them.

I am leaning towards voting against this topic largely because I don't agree that any nation has the right to exist. Nations are formed and exist by the will of the people. The people have rights, the nation itself does not.
