But that's why this situation is so horribly messed up.

What does "Israeli" mean?

It has at least four different associations: The Jewish culture, the Jewish race, the Jewish religion, and being someone born within certain borders.

And so, what does Israeli mistreatment of Palestinians imply? A territorial dispute, a cultural dispute, or a religious dispute?

It's all so mixed up. You can't attack the religion or politics of Jews or Israelis without being accused of racism.
