    I have recently come to believe that the Hamas and a lot of the Palestinian people do not want peace until Israel is wiped off the map. Is there any evidence for this?

    Well... yes actually:

    -The Hamas (which was voted for by the majority) has explicitly stated that they want Israel destroyed above all else.

    -Early Palestinian leaders showed their support to Hitler and the Holocaust: (e.g. they hate Jews) and today's Muslims have this bizzare way of rigidly sticking to the views of their ancestors

    -The Hamas have used tunnels built by children to assault Israel (i.e. they want to destroy Israel more than they want to look after children)

    -Palestine has never accepted a two state solution that Israel has proposed. Palestine has never proposed such a solution.

    -The BDS campaign focusses solely on weakening Israel, rather than promoting peace as such.

    -The conflict was triggered by Palestine, who launched unprovoked attacks on Israel before they ever lifted a finger.

    So why.... do so many people hate Israel so much and passionately defend Palestine? Are these facts not true or are they deluded?
