Both parties are essentially 'at fault' for not making any *real* long-term and equally beneficial efforts towards peace.

Israel AND Palestine have endorsed and committed acts of terrorism--dating back to the 1920's which is when the conflict began. The reality is that the current Israeli government (and certainly many governments before it) have no invested interest in peace; the political career *and* appeal of Netanyahu for example is entirely dependant on terrorism that Israeli citizens are led to believe is being perpetrated against them.

In addition, you also have to look at the wider issues in the Middle East. The Palestinian conflict is really only a small part of Israel's influence.

As for the U.S--they will continue to support Israel as long as there's certain 'people' lobbying for it. As well as that they kinda do have other shared interests.
All the time your soul is craving and longing for something else. And in vain does the dreamer rummage about in his old dreams, raking them over as though they were a heap of cinders, looking in these cinders for some spark, however tiny, to fan it into a flame so as to warm his chilled blood by it and revive in it all that he held so dear before, all that touched his heart, that made his blood course through his veins, that drew tears from his eyes, and that so splendidly deceived him!

Who is at fault, and who should the United States support?

Both are at fault.

The US should support Israel because they have actually been a good ally. What has Palestine ever done for us?

If we nuke Israel and Palestine, it would bring peace to the Middle East, and be way cheaper than giving Israel a bunch of free stuff every year.
