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.
Commentator on a picture with David Cameron and a Cat: 'Amazing what you can achieve with photoshop these days. I'm sure that used to be a pig.'

Commentator on Hillary Clinton: 'If Clinton is now what passes for progressive, maybe this country deserves Trump.'

Commentator on British parliament: 'All that talent in one place, where is Ebola when you need it?'

John Kerry on words: 'These aren't just words, folks.'

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.
