"....the vast majority of Palestinians would be happy to share access to the religious sites they have in common...." Not true. Sharing of the non-Islamic sites in the Palestinian Authority-controlled West Bank had to be forced on the Fakeistinians as part of the Oslo Accords. Despite treaties which bind the PA to protecting non-Islamic sites in the West Bank, Jewish sites are regularly vandalised, often by the Fakeistinian police supposedly guarding them. Christians are also leaving the West Bank in droves due to persecution. In the Gaza Strip, only religious groups recognised by Hamas are allowed to operate. Christian groups are only allowed to operate or worship in Gaza if they have Hamas's approval and pay the Jizya "infidel tax". The Christian population in the Strip is down to about 200 people, way less than 1% of the Gaza population, when they used to be 10.8%. Ironically, Islamic Hamas also try and ban Islamic groups they consider rivals. There are now no Jews living in the Gaza Strip, despite there having previously been a continual Jewish presence in Gaza City for thousands of years (they are recorded in Egyptian records from the times of the pharaohs, through Assyrian and Roman records, in Ottoman Turkish records dating up to WW1, and in British records dating up to 1948). All Jewish synagogues in the Gaza Strip have been destroyed. For a Jewish person to enter the Gaza Strip and openly declare their faith would be tantamount to suicide.
On the other hand, Israeli Arab Muslims and Christians can not only worship openly in Israel, their right to do so it protected under Israeli law. And the control of their places of worship (such as Christ Church, Anglican; St George's Cathedral, Episcopal; Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Greek Orthodox HQ and shared with other Christian denominations; and Al Aqsa Mosque, Sunni Islam - all in Jerusalem) are under their own ownership. Tellingly, the Islamic Waqf, which controls the Temple Mount, has used that control to block Jews access to the site of the Temple. So, no, the Fakeistinians have shown zero willingness to share religious sites, and zero tolerance of other faiths.
"....They're mainly pissed off about things like being starved of supplies by Israeli sanctions against them...." The sanctions only apply to the Gaza Strip under Hamas, and are a direct result of Hamas's attacks on Israeli civilians. Hamas was voted into power in the Strip by the population because Hamas said they would not negotiate with Israel and wanted to destroy Israel, so the population of the Gaza Strip only have themselves to blame. In the case of the West Bank, supply is limited due to chronic cronyism in the PA. For example, complete control of the import licenses and sale of cement in the West Bank - vital to building new homes - is controlled by a single member of the Fatah party and his family, much to their own enrichment. In order to drive out competition, the family uses "useful idiots" abroad like you to put pressure on non-Fakeistinian cement companies (such as HeidelbergCement and Hanson) to pull out of the West bank, ensuring their monopoly. Just to make it clear, it is people like you that mindlessly rebleat propaganda that actually limit supplies and economic opportunities for ordinary West Bankers.
"....having land taken away from them...." In the context of the post-1948 wars, Israel was the victim of attacks by larger neighbours that had the sole intention of killing Jews and stealing their lands. Specific to the Gaza Strip, the Israelis withdrew and pulled out all the settlers for their own safety (including those living in communities from pre-1948) in 2005. It was vainly hoped by the Israelis that this would lead to peace in the south, but then Hamas got into power on the promise to destroy Israel. So, even when Israel gives up Jewish land the Fakeistinians still show no intention other than to continue trying to kill Jews at every opportunity.
The rest of your blather is just the usual empty propaganda. You really need to try some non-fictional reading for a change.
