Oh boy, here's a real can of worms. But I'd be interested in hearing what people think of this, and whether they agree or not. I personally think that the Israel/Palestine situation is extremely complicated and very tough to sort out, but I also think there's a real sense in which western Christians tend to say "Well obviously we should be on Israel's side. Aren't they the people from the Bible?" and overlook the fact that Israel's doing some pretty atrocious things.

Actually I knew one guy who felt that Israel's poor treatment of Palestinians was entirely appropriate and in keeping with the Joshua account, which to me seemed like a fun and exciting new way of brutally torturing Scripture.
