Hmm, while I agree with the Hitler remark...I'm having a hard time seing the Israel/Palestine conflict being anything other than religious.
Jews and Muslims had been living in that area for 100's of years with veryfew cases of violence between them. Suddenly america form 'new' land by pushing out the people who used to live there and moving in the jews from all over the middle east. After that it became a target. You only have to look at their relationship with the US and the actions of the Mossad to understand what brings up some of that hatred.
