Russian President Vladimir Putin has expressed his belief that the United States is not doing enough in addressing global politics and the issue of violence worldwide. The ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians has drawn reactions from around the world, and Putin contends that the U.S.

has displayed a strong focus on supporting Israel while neglecting the plight of the Palestinians. In a conversation with Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia Al-Sudani, Putin remarked, "I believe that many will agree with me that this is a vivid example of the failure of the United States of America's policy in the Middle East." Putin's perspective centers on the notion that the United States tends to favor one side while disregarding other critical factors in the complex conflict.

Many share his view that contemporary politicians often appear biased and struggle to approach issues with objectivity.

According to Putin, the United States has overlooked the interests of the Palestinians, including their aspiration for an independent state.

The Palestinians seek a state encompassing the West Bank and Gaza Strip, with East Jerusalem serving as its capital—a claim dating back to Israel's capture of these territories in the 1967 war. The resolution of this enduring conflict remains uncertain, and the question of whether a lasting peace can be achieved remains elusive.

Given the tumultuous history of relations between Israel and the Palestinians, optimism is a rare commodity in the pursuit of a comprehensive solution. Israel enjoys significant support from numerous powerful countries around the world, making it challenging to envision Palestinians achieving their goals in this complex geopolitical landscape.

The situation serves as a poignant reminder of the harsh realities of politics, where cruelty often prevails over compassion. It is essential for the international community to recognize the human suffering and yearning for self-determination on both sides of this long-standing conflict.

Only through collective efforts, empathy, and a commitment to constructive dialogue can there be hope for a future where both Israelis and Palestinians can coexist in peace and prosperity.
