You live a peaceful life in a modest home. You've never bothered anyone and you've never caused trouble.
Out of the blues, a group of people claim that they should live in your house. Why? Because they have been persecuted in a war, and they claim that some 5,000 years ago, their God had told them your home was their promised land.
Somehow, the whole community agrees with their wishes, and asks you to grant them your spare-bedroom. You oblige.
After a few months, they take the whole top-floor. In a few year's time, they take over your kitchen.
After a few more years, they own your house and keep you and your family locked in the bathroom. They don't even allow you to get out, while they strip-search you the few times they do. Even if it's a medical emergency. Sometimes not even medical personnel and ambulances are allowed to see to your needs while your children die in your hands.
Desperation starts hitting you. Life seems to offer no hopes. In moments like these, you start to bang on the locked door and shout insults with all your might. Maybe the occupants might grant you a taste of freedom.
Alas, the opposite happens. They claim that your shouting is a danger to them. They come into your room, shoot at will and kill some of your children, in what they claim to be an act of self-defense.
You become furious. Seeing no point in living this sort of life, you surround yourself with explosives and blow yourself up next to the first occupant who comes near your family.
What this does though, is that it gives them another excuse to exterminate more of your people.
This is, in short, the plight of the people of Palestine. Walled up in ghettos, driven into poverty, bombed by powerful missiles and driven into despair, making Israel one of the topmost breeders of terrorists and Western-directed hate and contempt.
In the meantime, the Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama has declared that the US "fully supports Israel's right to defend itself", making his Nobel Peace Prize the joke of the century. Of course, Israel remains the state which has received most US military assistance in the world, the one armed with high-tech weapons to fight the stones of the natives, the one armed with nuclear, biological and chemical weapons without anyone batting an eyelid while wars are declared for suspected possession of such weapons in other countries. But of course, as long as the US President keeps pushing the corporatism which dispossesses the masses for the benefit of banks and corporations, he can surely count on their help when it matters most.
