    Surprising that this major conflict in the world has so few debates. There are some short one on ones in news shows where there is only time to throw around the standard talking points. Here is one that is more comprehensive with 4 Jews and 2 Palestinians. Hopefully there will be more.

    What we talk about when we talk about Israel/Palestine

    Only it isn't a major conflict.

    There's currently more than thirty armed conflicts in world today and the I/P Conflict rated consistently among the lowest in terms of both ongoing casualties and property loss.

    However, it rates highest in terms of discussion and debate, as the content of this board attests. There are an order of magnitude more comments on this conflict compared to any other current armed conflict.

    Given both those facts, one has to seriously consider the motivations or someone who is neither Israeli or Palestinian but is nonetheless obsessed with the conflict.

    I seriously doubt those motivations are in the interest of a peaceful resolution to the conflict.

    What other conflict is a hundred years old and there is no real interest in solving it?
