You don't know anything about history. You are just blindly parroting what the European press says while refusing to look at history.
If you did, you would know that in the 90s, after the PLO finally agreed to a peace treaty with Israel, things were going pretty good for Palestine. In the Camp David summit, Ehud Barak offered Palestine 92% of the west bank, the whole gaza strip, and half of Jerusalem to be the Palestinean capitol. All this in exchange for one thing-PEACE.
PALESTINE REJECTED THIS AND STARTED FIRING ROCKETS AND SENDING SUICIDE BOMBERS AT ISRAELI CIVILIANS SHORTLY AFTER.
There is no reason to feel sympathy for people who are purposefully sabotaging their own standard of living and happiness in order to gain international sympathy.
