People can hold whatever views they want with respect to the Israel vs. Palestine conflict. However, the US should stop sending money to both Israel and Palestine. Instead, it should take a more non-interventionist approach to this conflict. 

Truth be told, this will be a tough proposition owing to how thoroughly captured the US is by foreign interests. A new political class has to emerge for any meaningful political change to occur here.
