So i heard that Israel was being really racist towards Palestine. Like, Israeli people are meant to have lighter skin tones, more blondes, more blue eyes...so they think they are superior? Is this true? Why are Israel and Palestine fighting?

Sorry, I want to be helpful and nice... but if you think they're fighting because Jewish people have blonde hair and blue eyes, I don't think there's much I can do.

ok, so the Jews are the ones who kinda own Israel (for now) and muslims are angry so they fire rockets and then the jews don't let building material in. I seeeee.

Basically Israel are land stealers who hide their crimes under the holocaust. They get a sweet deal from Germany by getting free submarines by mentioning WW2 a few times a year. Why they need submarines to steal land is confusing though....

I suspect you're being a troll, but no this is not why. There's lots of reasons, but largely it's a fight over land. And no doubt there's a strong element of racism towards the Palestinians, as when Israel was first inhabited by the Zionists in the early 20th century the Palestinians were largely a people of serfs having previously being under the rule of various different Imperial rulers. There is also a racism the opposite way however, as the struggle against Israeli oppression became more desperate a strong element of Islamofascism swept the country as Islamic fanatics promised weapons and money to fight back. As a result both sides have become more radicalized. There are no obvious demons in this dispute, but certainly Israel is more responsible given it's privileged economic position, and certainly it has acted immorally by persistently ignoring UN pleas to act more reasonably. However, the Palestinian authorities are too weak to clamp down on the fanaticists, therefore there is likely to be a standoff indefinitely unless the US takes action.
That sums it up rather well I think.

Basically all you need to know is that the social protocol dictates that if you want people to think you care about "all the injustice in the world mannnnn" (ie you're a middle class socialist who's watched a few documentaries with Noam Chomsky in them) you blindly support Palestinian terrorist movements who wish to destroy Israel. But if you're less of a hippy you're required to support the Israelis, who've also been a bit dickish.

*Waits for self righteous idiots to get all butthurt about some Arab children they've never met*

I'm not being a troll but that is a good description, thank-you.

Fox news would surely come down on the other side, they are of the American Conservative breed that buys in to the evangelical notions of Christ's second coming and thus support Israel unquestioningly.

No it's nothing to do with that, one factor that caused it though was a belief in crap like that though (ie. the Jews being forced to flee Europe and retuning to Isreali which is supposedly their 'land of milk and honey')

Essentially it is a disupte over land- and one that is unlikely to be resolved seeing as they both seem to have a legitimate claim to the land. And it's propelled by violence, religion, even the cold war etc. But the bare bones of it is just fighting over that land, Zionists beleive it is there homeland, but the Arabs have lived there for literally thousands of years.

Basically google it. You have to be very thorough and look at both sides of the story because it is near impossible to get a sufficiently objective conclusion (it never is with history- but especially with the Arab-Isreali conflict as there is such deep-set hate)...
